The first place they succeed is out in the woods, in a place near a train station that they walk to, down a lane and then a footpath.  They feel safe because the trees aren't thick enough to hide microphones in and they were also lucky that no patrols appeared to ask them "awkward questions" in the train station.

Another is in Mr. Charrington's room above the shop.  Winston gets there early and waits for her, Julia shows up with a number of incredible things, real tea, sugar, white bread and jam and even make up that amazes Winston.

They also manage to meet in a church tower where they have to deal with incredible amounts of bird crap and the dustiness of the place.
