Top spots in London to watch the Euros this summer
Updated: Jun 3, 2021
After such a manic year, it's hard to believe that the Euros is only weeks away- and if you're anything like us, you'll be looking to take full advantage of the festivities.
Not everyone is lucky enough to get their hands on stadium tickets, especially for those games before 'freedom day' on the 21st. Luckily, London is brimming with exciting venues where you can experience the Euros in whichever way you fancy. We've handpicked 6 of our favourites.
The home for this year's Official Fan Zone, Trafalgar Square will be hosting up to 750 key workers per game until the 21st. After that, we could see capacity crowds of up to 12,500- enough to rock Nelson's Column.
Box Park, Shoreditch
BoxPark's Croydon venue shot to fame during the 2018 World Cup, with videos of celebrating England fans going viral. It's the same set up in Shoreditch- a cauldron of beers, food and footy, for those of us who like a party atmosphere and feeling like a part of the action. Tables will cost you and your friends between £40 and £130, so it's no pinch.
Skylight Rooftop, Tobacco Dock
If you want to watch England bring it home while taking in some of the finest views that London has to offer, look no further than Skylight Rooftop. A stunning rooftop garden with 4x 2.5M screens will have every angle covered. You'll have to book tables up until the 21st- however from then on, you can buy individual tickets from £10 and watch the game with up to 600 others.
Flat Iron Square, nr Borough Market
Another one for the fanatics, Flat Iron Square guarantees an electric atmosphere during the games this summer. The photo above from the 2018 World Cup shows what you can expect once restrictions have eased, but until then you can book a variety of package deals for you and your friends, starting at £100.
Gibney's Irish Pub, City Road
If you're after a more wholesome Euros experience, then Irish pub Gibney's may be the place for you. Far from the scorching sun and flying pints of Stella, you can enjoy a stout and hearty meal while catching the game on the big screen. They're showing every single one, so in theory, you shouldn't have to move for a month. The best part is that it's £10 entry for an England game, and the rest are absolutely free.
Vauxhall Food and Beer Garden, Vauxhall
Tucked underneath the Vauxhall railway arches, this trendy spot is usually home to bottomless brunches and world-renowned street food. This summer, the big screens will be showing every minute of the Euros- with a wide range of catering packages available, starting at £60. Unlimited cocktails while England bring it home... who would say no to that?
