It's like a smelly basement below a McDonalds filled with a few arcade machines and millions of spotty kids. That's sounds a bit harsh but if you massively lower your expectations of this place you'll still probably leave disappointed. Below the level with the arcades there is another with a bar and a bowling alley. The skittles are on strings... More

We were walking around London, and found this little gem near the Eye. It's a two level arcade, with all sorts of redemption games and some (not many) classics. You'll need some money, since this isn't exactly inexpensive, but if you're into arcades as much as I am (3 games at home), this one hit the spot on a trip... More

I love, love, love arcades! Especially dance, dance revolution and all that. Namco is in a pretty accessible place, on south bank just mere metres from the London eye. I sometimes forget that children exist in London too, I spot them so rarely, but it's because they're all here. Which i don't mind, I'm too distracted by all the flashing... More

This place it is not even a good place where to work, and to be honest with you the managers such as Nick don t care about the staff and also about the customers.All that person cares is about money. Also i requested his help ,but instead he was really rude and sarcastic. i feel sory for the people working... More

It was on our doorstep so we stopped in past one night. Decent to while away a half hour and waste a few pounds but I wouldn't go out my way to visit

The funscape experience started off badly when it took 15 minutes to get served at the bar. 'oh I'm sorry I didn't see you' well in that case why did you start serving someone else straight after saying that? Wow.. Apathetic staff, machines that swallow your money, slow food delivery (told food was an hour wait as only 1 chef).... More

Has a few bowling lanes and some good machines that do tickets if you like paying £20 for a pen.. Most of the machines were ok. A few fruit machines had bulbs out and were not line up properly. Has a costa coffee downstairs and a bar but we didn't use them.

Staying in Southbank

Neighborhood Profile
Southbank
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
