If you live in London or are close by, watching the Paris Olympics this summer is easier than you might think. Whether you are an eager sports fan or just looking to soak up the electric atmosphere that watching the Olympics has, there are a wide number of options available to you.

1. Get Tickets

If the opportunity arises, and you are lucky enough to secure tickets to watch the Paris Olympics live and in person, you are set for an unparalleled experience. The atmosphere across the stadiums will be sure to be electric, and make cheering on your favourite athlete or watching a new sport even better.

If you have been unsuccessful in securing tickets to the Olympics, why not head out to Paris anyway? Getting to Paris is really easy, as it’s just a short plane or Eurostar journey away and would be just as immersive as seeing the games in person. Why not soak up the electric atmosphere of the city and watch the games from a public screening in the city? In the company of fellow enthusiasts from around the world, it will be sure to be an unforgettable experience.

3. London Screenings

If you cannot make it to Paris to watch the games, London makes a great alternative. There is a vast array of options available to you in London that will ensure you can enjoy the same fantastic atmosphere of the Paris Olympics.

How to Watch the Paris Olympics at Home?

If watching the Paris Olympics from home sounds like the plan for you, make sure to have BBC up and ready. This streaming platform will have the sports live and on catch up meaning you don’t have to miss a minute of it.

If there are particular events you and your friends or family are looking forward to, whether it be the final of the 100 metres or even the opening ceremony, why not make it into an event? Here are our four steps for turning an at-home screening into a fun afternoon or evening:
