The Piazza, Wimbledon
Where better to watch Wimbledon than in Wimbledon?! A screen will be set up in The Piazza in the town, with deckchairs set out for you to make yourself comfy. Defiantly a great spot since you’ll be so close to the action, you’ll almost be able to hear the thwacking and grunting live from Centre Court.

The Canal, King’s Cross
This is a great location for the family since Kings Cross is home to many amazing restaurants, with the canal being only a short walk from the station it’s easy access and is a lovely spot in the sunshine. Take a seat on the ghat steps anytime during the Championships, and you can watch the Centre Court action on Everyman’s big screen, set up just across the canal. The steps have been given an apt lawn effect, with oversized pillows for extra comfort.
