Wimbledon tennis screenings in London

Catch all the Wimbledon live action on one of London’s big screens this summer

By Time Out London Things To Do

Missed out on tickets in the Wimbledon Tennis Championships ballot? You can still queue on the day, though you should probably go pretty early. The tournament ends on Jul 14, so there are still plenty of evenings left to spend in a sweet viewing spot, drinking Pimm’s and cheering on the second-to-none grunting.

Where to watch Wimbledon 2019

1. Pergola Olympia

Restaurants Pop up restaurant West Kensington

Watch balls fly from the big screen on the botanical rooftop at the new Pergola in west London. Unlike its cousin in Paddington, this Olympia edition is open year-round and primed for good times. Great for organised groups who want to book one of the long tables and line up the jugs of Pimm’s. 

2. St Katharine Docks

Attractions Tower Bridge

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 full of deckchairs.

3. Skylight London

Things to do Event spaces Wapping

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 Wimbledon screenings during its opening hours. The matches will be shown on a selection of little screens dotted around the rooftop rather than one big one, so you won’t have to compete for a seat.

4. St James’s Market

Things to do St James’s

Who needs Centre Court when you have St James Market? Get the best views of open-air screenings of the Wimbledon Championships. See the full tournament from the comfort of a deckchair in the heart of the West End and keep an eye out for local restaurants offering special Wimbledon deals and incentives.


5. Granary Square

Attractions Public spaces 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. Stick around after the matches for Summer of Love, free open-air film screenings curated by Everyman Cinema. 

6. Flat Iron Square

Things to do 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. 


7. The Piazza

Attractions Public spaces 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.

8. Merchant Square

Attractions Public spaces Paddington

Paddington’s Merchant Square will be showing the entire tournament on its big screen. 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 sports like ‘Mario Kart’ and ‘Mario Sports’, in front of a (hopefully) cheering crowd.

9. Cardinal Place Roof Garden

Shopping Victoria

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. They’ll be taking it easy for 2019, focusing on the screenings under the Cardinal canopy. 

10. Open House

News Events & Festivals

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 event Open House will include Wimbledon matches, shown on their absolutely enormous Hyde Park screen. And guess what? It’s free.


11. Camden Market's North Yard

Shopping Street vendors Camden Market
Camden is getting its own Centre Court for the finals of The Championship, complete with astro turf and north London's largest outdoor screen. And, thanks to the ball boy/girl restaurant-to-lawn delivery service, you can get served food from North Yard's finest delis and restaurants without missing a single volley, slice or drop shot. Smashing.
