Missed out on tickets in the Wimbledon Tennis Championships ballot? Can’t face camping out on the street for day tickets? No problem. London is a city that gives back and this summer it will be peppered with big screens showing all the Murray Mound (okay, Henman Hill) action in so much blown-up high-res glory that you might as well be court-side. 

This year the tournament (which started in 1877!) runs from Monday June 27 to Sunday July 10 and you’ll catch screens across the capital showing most matches on each day of the event, so there are plenty of opportunities to spend an afternoon or evening in a sweet viewing spot. 

Most screens will also be offering special edition cocktails, food offers and even pop-up tennis coaching. Take that Centre Court.

Where to watch Wimbledon 2022

  • Attractions
  • Public spaces
  • King’s Cross

The Wimbledon screenings on the faux-grass canalside steps by Granary Square usually get pretty busy as crowds gather with plastic flutes and bottles of Waitrose prosecco, so get there early. 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 free open-air film screenings curated by Everyman Cinemas.

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. 

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 will 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.

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 Wimbledon on a floating pontoon full of deckchairs. 

  • 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.

Merchant Square
  • Attractions
  • Public spaces
  • Paddington

Paddington’s Merchant Square will be showing the entire tournament on its big screen. BYOB (that’s bring your own blanket; though we hope you don’t need one, it should be a nice hot day, fingers crossed) and settle down with a cocktail to get a load of the action.

  • Kids
  • Greenwich

Greenwich’s slick, snazzy Peninsula gets a makeover each year as part of its Summer Sessions. As well as a programme of music, films, parties and games, they’ll also be using their huge cinema screen to show all the Wimbledon finals on July 9-10. It’s free to head along and unlike Centre Court, you’ll also get a nice view of the Thames.

  • Marylebone

Summer is coming to Portman Square Garden. It’s Summer in the Square series will feature wellbeing workshops and activities, as well as a fully stocked bar and specially-picked street food stalls. And it wouldn’t be summer without Wimbledon. From July 5-10 it will be showing all the major finals matches - comfy deckchairs and food from Wulf and Lamb, 2 Lads, The Hungry Llama, Com Amar, Soffrita, Sicily and Man in Pasta provided.
