There’s nothing quite like watching your country get a place on the podium (Go Carlin and Peaty!) And while we may not be in Rio watching the events live, we’ve rounded up a list of the best places in London that come pretty close!
St. Katherine’s Docks
All summer long, St Kathrine’s Docks has been a go to for sporting events such as Wimbledon. Lucky for us, the Olympics lasts for the majority of August so all you have to do is grab a chair, your friends, and get ready to cheer on your team when they cross the finish line on the big screen!
You can catch the best of the best this summer at Broadgate. Monday – Friday, 8am – 10am, Broadgate will be screening highlights and certain fan favourite events (check the schedule here) so that you can get your daily Olympic fix! Conveniently located near a vast array of restaurants and coffee shops, you can always take a time out and grab a bite to eat nearby. Hey, you work up an appetite watching those Olympians do their thing!
Haven’t been able to catch the games due to your busy schedule? On August 13, Regent’s Place is hosting a day of highlights from 12-8pm. It might be hard to avoid the papers for any spoilers, but you can at least still be a part of the action!
London Bridge City
Views of the iconic London Bridge and official fan zone of the Great Britain Olympic team?! Not only does London Bridge City give you the most picturesque spot in London to watch your team, you can also participate in some Olympic inspired sports such as table tennis, judo, cycling and running (click here for the schedule)! Get ready to feed off the energy of the crowd and your favourite Olympians!
Beach East at Queen’s Olympic Park
We would be remiss if we didn’t mention London’s own Olympic park! Another official fan zone for Great Britain’s Olympic team, Beach East allows plenty of space for you, your friends and family to enjoy the games with live coverage. Entry into the fan zone is free, just don’t forget your team spirit!
