England has made it to the World Cup Final for the first time since 1966 and victory for the Lionesses is so close, we can almost taste it. The Fifa Women’s World Cup 2023, hosted by Australia and New Zealand, has been well underway since July 20, and the final on Sunday August 20 is just days away. We can't believe we're saying this, but after England thrashed the Aussies in the semi-finals, it could actually be coming home. 

It's been an emotional tournament, filled with unbelievable goals, devastating near-misses and the occasional stamp. England will take on Spain for the grand title this Sunday, with the match kicking off at 11am. 

There are all sorts of options for catching the final, including football pubs, local boozers and bars, sports bars offering World Cup themed pizzas and massive football parties at major alfresco venues. Here’s the score on the best places to catch kick-off.

Where to watch the Women’s World Cup final in London

The famous one
  • Attractions
  • Wembley

To many Londoners, the image of a raucous Boxpark crowd lobbing pints in the air is utterly synonymous with England scoring at a major tournament. So it’s no surprise at all that Boxpark’s three shipping container venues in Croydon, Shoreditch and Wembley will be whacking on all the England women’s matches. They’re also sweetening the deal with a ‘festival of football’ with DJs, food, and family-friendly football-based challenges where you (or maybe your kid) can pretend to be the next Chloe Kelly.

The boozy brunch one
  • Bars and pubs
  • Breweries
  • Battersea
  • price 2 of 4

Undaunted by the time difference, Battersea fun palace The Four Thieves is laying on a massive brunch to celebrate the Lionesses’ first match this year. There’ll be bottomless mimosas and brekkie foods from kick off at 10.30am, plus the chance to get silly with bingo and party games afterwards. 

  • Bars and pubs
  • Craft beer pubs
  • Camden Town
  • price 3 of 4

Chug down a pint of almighty Punk IPA and catch all the England action at Brewdog’s industrial-style bars in Camden, Seven Dials, Shoreditch and Soho. The Aberdeenshire brewery will be creating a dedicated fan area at each branch, so you can make as much racket as you want. Think (craft) beer kegs and Fran Kirby.

  • Bars and pubs
  • Sports bars
  • Greenwich Peninsula

If you want to put in a day’s work while keeping (more than) half an eye on the game, then make for TOCA Social, the sports bar-slash-interactive gaming ‘experience’ inside The O2. A £20 Work & Watch package gives you a view of the big screen alongside a table with plug access, breakfast or lunch, and plenty of hot drinks. Your ‘employee of the year’ mug’s in the post.

  • Bars and pubs
  • Beer hall
  • Walthamstow

Kids, dogs and big gaggles of mates are welcome at sprawling Walthamstow pub Big Penny Social’s Women’s World Cup screenings. Soak up the game over a morning pint, then head out onto the venue’s massive outdoor terrace to enjoy the afternoon sun.
