August is here and so are the long-awaited Rio Olympics! If you have clients to take out and are stuck for a place or you just want to feel part of the action with your colleagues or friends then you’ll be pleased to know that London is more than accommodating!
The UK has multiple Team GB Olympic Fanzones that aim to bring people together to celebrate the games, the sports and our Team GB champions in great locations full of refreshments and other activities. We have carefully researched and selected the top five London locations screening the Olympics this year based on the area, accessibility and entertainment:
London Bridge City is one of the ‘fanzones’ for Rio Olympics; it is one of many chosen spots around the country that grant free admission to the screening. This particular venue is also encouraging people to try a sport for themselves, focusing on cycling, judo, running, table tennis and equestrian sport! This is the watch spot for the more active!
The Beach East at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is the second official fanzone in London and will also be screening the games live so if you’re looking for more of an immersive experience where you can almost convince yourself that you’re in Rio then head to the sandy beach!
Close to the List of Life office itself, you can catch the Rio Olympics on a big screen at Pop Fields which will immerse you in the sounds, sights and tastes of Rio with music, games and food if you book tickets for the 6th August!
Having already hosted Wimbledon’s tennis screenings, St Katherine Docks have also committed to screening Rio’s games from the 5th to the 21st July. With deckchairs, nearby places to get drinks and many sporting fans around, St Katherine Docks is set to be the spot for the sporty viewers.
Following a Brazilian themed party on the 4th of August, Merchant Square are screening the Rio Olympics too, every day from the 5th until the 21st. Sit on the lawn with a drink in hand and enjoy the big screen!
