The Dickens Inn is one of the most beautiful pubs you’ll visit, thanks to its beautiful outside space with views of St Katherine Docks. And inside it’s equally as charming, with a traditional interior with antique furniture, a selection of well-kept ales on the bar, and five large flat-screens TVs to catch the games.
Watching the World Cup in London is all well and good, but after you see the fantastic sight of England scoring a goal, you’ll want other views to accompany it. Meet Lockhouse, a cool industrial bar that not only serves up award-winning burgers, craft beers, and TVs to catch all the action, you’ve got views of the Grand Union Canal to boot.
The Botanist are throwing open their doors into Broadgate Circle, creating a semi-open space and one of the most perfect places to watch the World Cup in London with outdoor space. There’s great beers, wonderful food, and enormous screens to watch everything.
The Cow already has that football atmosphere going for it, thanks to being located just opposite the Olympic Park and so close to West Ham’s stadium. But add in a wonderful array of food, beer, and wine, as well as a compact but comfortable outside space to escape out into, and you’ve got a good time.
There’s lots of reasons to watch the world cup 2018 at Zigfrid Von Underbelly: think drink deals, pint drinking loyalty cards so you can nab extra free pints, comfy sofas, and wonderful pizzas. They also have an outside space that faces into Hoxton Square, making it an ideal place all round to watch football.
This gastropub in Lewisham is the ultimate place to watch the football in London if you want great pub food and delicious real ales in equal measure. But put in a spectacular outdoor beer garden for you to soak up the sun and you’ve got something extra special.
Green Goose are showing all the World Cup games outside in their gorgeous beer garden, letting you soak up both the action and the sun. But if the weather doesn’t hold, you can always head inside, where they’ll show it on two big screens alongside craft beer and delicious grilled dishes.
Jerusalem are going all out so that you can watch the World Cup in London there, boasting two massive projectors for your pleasure. But add in a modern European menu and wonderful drinks menu – alongside an impressive terrace beer garden – and you’re onto a winner.
The Ealing Park Tavern’s one of the best places to watch the World Cup in London not just because of its great selection of drinks and delicious ETM-brand food (burger and beer deals galore), but their wonderfully large garden space complete with three cabanas.
This cosy East London boozer has its traditional charm and fun party atmosphere at the same time. A favourite for watching the sport, there’s GoneBurger food in the kitchen to keep your belly happy, and as a bar showing the World Cup in London with outdoor space, its alfresco area is normally a hit too.
Elk Bar is a bit of a favourite in Fulham thanks to its warm atmosphere, great food (including dishes from their outdoor BBQ), and fun DJ nights. So when you watch the World Cup 2018 here, you can also chill out in their awesome alfresco spot.
The Coat and Badge is an old school pub sitting just off Putney High Street. While it’s a favourite for people watching football in London thanks to its charming interiors, delicious food, and a wide range of wines and ales, their outdoor space becomes a hotspot come the summer.
The Canonbury have teamed up with Camden Town Brewery, who will be covering the cost of your first round of drinks! So that’s sorted. Meanwhile, you can treat yourself to some tasty burgers as well as a seat in their gorgeous, historic beer garden.
The Riverside is one of the best bars showing the World Cup with outdoor space in London because they deliver exactly what the name says.

Boasting both large indoor and outdoor screens, there aren’t many reasons not to watch the World Cup outside in London at the Bishop Kingston. You’ll probably find there isn’t much better than sitting by the Thames, cheering on England, as you sip on a free pint of Camden Hells.
The Last Days of Shoreditch are hosting an all-round World Cup experience.
