A little hard to find as its underneath Piccadilly train station but wow wow wow for £5 each you get to choose from a list of 23 films that each last about 7 mins. You are given glasses and seated in a room that holds up to 4. Its the most incredible experience there is wind blowing, you are jolted... More

The rest of the reviews on this site are correct. If it were possible to give it (T/C) a rating of NIL I would. I had visited the TC over the years - now and again - occasionally but not frequently. I was never overly impressed with the TC, and would never have awarded it a 'world class attraction' status.... More

If you go by Piccadilly Circus and do not go to shopping here you have made mistake. There are so many shops from souvenirs to anime to movie theatre and arcade. Fun for the whole family.

This place had a great selection of arcades and other things to do, along with a sports bar upstairs... I don't know where everything has now gone! You walk in and there are perhaps 4 or 5 little shops at a push. The manga store is ok but even this isn't as good as it used to be. You can... More

My girlfriend and I recently purchased Cineworld Unlimited passes and the 'Coventry Street' cinema was the best, closest one...sadly it was in the Trocadero, which has to be the biggest rat hole of a location in Central London. We actually entered through an unmarked doorway up a non functioning escalator! I am sure I have great memories from when I... More

Many years ago I went to the Troc and it was amazing. Went back this weekend - a sad pathetic place, run down, cheap shops plus a 'gentleman's club' . All the fun is gone. Stay away from this place

Many years ago the Trocadero was amazing. You could spend hours there, but it has changed. It is a shame that they have not closed this place. It is hard to find the game hall, but if you take the escalator, next to a theater ticket shop, you will arrive to a sad, sad place. It is dirty, nothing seems... More

The website is completely misleading. It shows everything being bright and colourful with families looking happy and having fun. I thought it would be exactly like that... How wrong was I!? As you walk in, you see all of these tacky shops selling shisha and phone cases. Once you walk into the main atrium, you just see a couple retro... More

Came as a boy as it was fantastic. Brought my kids here to let off some neon steam but everything was barriered and closed after the initial entrance hall of tatty shops selling rubbish apart from the manga shop. Please just avoid, if you've been in it's hayday remember it as it was. Gutted.
