Wimbledon 2015 On The Big Screen: Where To Watch In London

Jun 26th 2015 | london | lifestyle

Where are you watching the Wimbledon Championships this year? There’s a pretty good chance you weren’t one of the lucky few who bagged themselves a ticket in the ballot and if queuing from 6pm outside the gates of Wimbledon the night before isn’t your thing, then we may just have the next best thing. Here’s our round up on the best alternative places to watch Wimbledon in London this year.

Bluebird (Chelsea)
There's something quintessentially British about sitting al fresco with a glass of pimms in hand on a sun-drenched courtyard watching our British hopefuls smash it out at Wimbledon. Head to Bluebird in Chelsea and soak up the atmopshere. They haven't forgotten the little ones and are also running a Wimbledon cupcake decorating class. 

Lewis Cubitt Square (King's Cross) 
Pack a picnic and head to King's Cross for these free outdoor screenings of Wimbledon 2015. Set up in Granary Square in previous years, this summer the big screens have now moved round the corner to Lewis Cubitt Square. If you've not planned a picnic, Rotunda Restaurant and Bar will be on site offering strawberries and cream and jugs of Pimm's. Early birds can claim one of the 50 deck chairs.

Regent's Place
Outdoor screenings and outdoor activities in the West End make Regent's Place the spot to be to watch the tennis this summer. Their simulators are back again allowing participants to test both speed and accuracy of their tennis serves. 

One New Change (St Pauls)
Watch Wimbledon atop the sixth floor roof terrace of One New Change. Pull up a deckchair and watch the tournament for free on their lifesize screen housed in a customised retro caravan. There's also an ice cream van, street food and strawberries and cream as you've never seen it before. 

Canada Square Park (Canary Wharf) 
Canary Wharf's Summer Season kicks off with Wimbledon on the big screen. It's an al fresco affair so be sure to bring a picnic, suncreen and cushions. The perfect spot to make the most of warm summer days and balmy evenings. 

Exchange Square (Broadgate
Exchange Square will be showing many of the summer's sporting events and also offers an impressive line up of dance, music, film and theatrical perforamnces until the end of July. It's worth knowing that the screen only runs from Monday to Friday so it won't be showing the final weekend of Wimbledon. 

It’s really lovely to have assurance from the company arranging the night that we will be looked after, even after we have paid the money - Charlotte
