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

Restaurants, Pop up restaurant

Pergola Paddington Central

icon-location-pin Paddington

It’s not exactly outdoors, but you can still see the sky from this vine-tangled terrace. At the Pergola, you can follow the balls-ups of Wimbledon across its two floors. And you can pretend you’re in a VIP box at Centre Court by booking a ‘day bed’. The best part? You can order a burger  from Patty & Bun without the Soho queues. 

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.

Attractions, Public spaces

The Big Screen at Merchant Square

Okay, this space might not scream ‘get your pants off, it’s a party on the lawn!’ but it does have a pretty good set-up. There’s an oversized TV, a nearby bar and a decent amount of reclining chairs to fight over by the peaceful Paddington Basin. There’s also street food hosted by Epicurean Events planned for Tuesdays and Thursdays. Find out more here

Granary Square
Attractions, Public spaces

Granary Square

icon-location-pin King's Cross

A big, mean, tennis screen is moving from Lewis Cubitt to the canalside at Granary Square for The Championships. 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. If Murray’s comeback goes a bit wrong (and let’s hope it doesn’t), 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 will be switching it up with Wimbledon and World Cup games on TVs dotted throughout the market. Couldn’t give a deuce? Just raise a shiraz to Queen Serena from the new wine bar, Tap and Bottle.

Cardinal Place Roof Garden

icon-location-pin St James's Park

Westminster’s rooftop garden is going full-immersion on the Wimbledon front by putting on fitness classes from Frame, Gymbox and Triyoga alongside its usual match screenings as part of Wimbledon Workout Week (until June 30). Or you can sack off the HIIT class for a frozen margarita on
a giant stripy cushion. Find out more here
