Missed out on tickets for the Wimbledon Tennis Championships last time around? There’s still time to enter the ballot for 2019. The tournament will most likely run from 1 Jul-14 Jul 2019, so there are plenty of evenings to spend in a sweet viewing spot, drinking Pimm’s and cheering on the second-to-none grunting.

Where to watch Wimbledon 2019

Summer by the River

Pretend you’re jeering gladiators in combat by watching the competition in a Roman-style amphitheatre. It’ll all be set to the backdrop of another battleground – City Hall - with Tower Bridge behind. As well as Wimbledon et al, there will be shedloads of free films and theatre running, for everyone from the Shakespeare-heads to the diehard 'Aquaman' fans.

St Katharine Docks

This pretty marina, once one of the UK's busiest tea ports, is now playing host to a British stereotype of a different kind. That's right, 'St Kats' will be showing the whole of Wimbledon on a floating pontoon replete with deck chairs.

Skylight London

Some say Skylight’s rooftop has the best views in London. But, while its panoramic vista is something to behold, you’ll also find a load of urban lawn games, a spread of seasonal cocktails and open-air screenings of every major sporting event from the FA Cup Final to the Rugby World Cup.

Pergola Paddington Central

You can follow the balls-ups of Wimbledon on the vine-tangled terrace of Paddington's Pergola, or pretend you’re in a VIP box at Centre Court by booking a ‘day bed’. The best part? The mouth-watering food, courtesy of Patty&Bun and Babek Brothers.

Venue says Hidden alfresco garden and rooftop: drinking/dining in the heart of London, with 850 seats, seven day-beds, four restaurants and two bars.

Granary Square

Granary Square

icon-location-pin King's Cross

The Wimbledon screenings on the faux-grass steps at the square usually get pretty squished as post-work crowds gather with plastic flutes and bottles of Waitrose prosecco, but the first 50 arrivals can score a free deckchair. And if your fave hits an ace, there are 1,080 choreographed fountain jets right behind to help you cool off.

Things to do

Flat Iron Square

icon-location-pin Southwark

Sure, there are loads of oversized outdoor screens in London, but not all of them live beside a licensed bar and good people selling pork tacos. Southwark’s food, booze and event spot Flat Iron was the place to be for last year's World Cup, and they'll be showing all the Wimbledon matches this year. Couldn’t give a deuce? Just raise a shiraz to Queen Serena at the wine bar, Tap and Bottle.

The Piazza

icon-location-pin Wimbledon

Where better to watch Wimbledon than, well, Wimbledon? This is a 'no cost, no queue' shindig, so just pull up a deckchair and catch some rays while you watch tennis titans battle it out about 1.3 miles away on Centre Court.

Attractions, Public spaces

Merchant Square

icon-location-pin Paddington

Paddington's Merchant Square will be showing the whole of the ICC Cricket World Cup on their big screen from Thu May 30 to Sun Jul 14. And if that doesn't tickle your fancy, it's also their outdoor gaming season, so you can take on your mates (or complete strangers) at real sport like 'Mario Kart' and 'Mario Sports', in front of a (hopefully) cheering crowd.

Cardinal Place Roof Garden

icon-location-pin St James's Park

Westminster’s rooftop garden went full-immersion on the Wimbledon front last year by putting on fitness classes from Frame, Gymbox and Triyoga alongside its usual match screenings as part of Wimbledon Workout Week. Expect more of the same this year, or sack off the HIIT class for a frozen margarita on a giant stripy cushion instead.

Open House

As well as a free Sigur Rós gig, a free yoga class from Lululemon and free screenings of ‘Grease’ and ‘The Greatest Showman’, BST's totally free midweek 'Open House' will include Wimbledon matches, shown on their absolutely enormous Hyde Park screen. And guess what? It's free.
