Watch the beautiful game beneath the flower entwined pergolas at Fest, one of the finest roof terraces in London. There’ll be a huge projector and multiple screens to watch the game. And if the tension of the match gets too much, the panoramic views of north London will calm your nerves.


Greenwood, Victoria

For a bit more exclusivity, head down to Greenwood bar and sports lounge in central London and book a private space to watch the game. While the interior is a blend of a common room and library, the atmosphere is lively and friendly. Try the generous match day platter to share with your fellow supporters.


Cafe Football, Stratford

A short bus ride away from Cafe Football is Pitch, an outdoor bar with a cool vibe. Cheer on the Three Lions at this urban garden with its colourful picnic benches, 16ft screen, and charm.

Located on a cobbled street, this East End boozer has a cinema screen in its cellar for the World Cup matches. You’ll have to book a ticket for a seat downstairs or you can enjoy the match above ground in the main bar or garden.

The home of ping pong has gone football crazy with 12ft screens and a dedicated space to watch the World Cup. There’s plenty of beer, and an extensive pizza selection to keep your appetite at bay during the game.
