Not totally what I expected

I went here as my partner is a game machine fanatic and another friend had told me they had the fastest dodgems in Europe. I don't know what I expected but I definitely was a bit... read more

A friend who's living in London took me to this place, I had visited London four times already and never heard of Namco, so it was a great discovery. If you're fan of air hockey, I totally recommend playing it here because wow! I had never experienced one as fun as this one! Playing mario Kart was also nice. We... More

We had our work Xmas party here at the beginning of the year, and I would say it was the best I've ever been to. All the arcade machines are free to play, plus dodgems, bowling, pool and table tennis. Food was also very good. Hoping to go again this Xmas if we can afford it!

I went here as my partner is a game machine fanatic and another friend had told me they had the fastest dodgems in Europe. I don't know what I expected but I definitely was a bit disappointed when we arrived. The dodgems are quite small and slow and in the middle of the main room. Although this was a lot... More

Horrid experience here. We got tokens through London Pass to start, these took 15 mins to arrive and we had no apology. The vast majority of machines and ALL ticket machines do not accept tokens making them a very pointless exercise obtaining them in the first place. After this I then found half the machines didn't even work properly but... More

I love this arcade each time I'm up in London I make an effort to pop in. Great games and bumper cars it's quite big so on a busy weekend you don't really notice the crowds. I won a few tickets so got a pokemon key chain and a few shot glasses. Staff are friendly and helpful which is a... More

For different type of date night we decided to go to the retro arcade, whilst we had a great time we did find that there were limited games. We were unable to go into the bar area and play pool due to numerous functions. It's a great cheap date night, we spent £10 each and played 10 different games which... More

Came to the Namco Funscape with friends as part of a day out. Spent around 2 hours inside, going on dodgems, simulator, and a few other games. It's good fun as part of a day out, but I would say isn't exactly a final destination. More like, if you have some time to kill and you're with people, and don't... More

I don't like to be a negative nancy but the escape room was absolutely terrible. And a big anti climax from the escape room we did in Prague where there was a proper introduction and a staff member truly getting into character to fit the scene. An easy way to be stripped of 25 pound at the namco escape room.... More

Came out with a bunch of friends to have loads of fun. If you have the London Pass you get three free coins to use so it's an awesome night time thing to do. The bar downstairs took forever to help us but that's the only problem I've had. Definitely lots of fun and there's plenty of games.

I invited my partner and 2 teenage girls to my office private party in that arcade. The girls had a blast spending most of their time in the bumper cars. The lazer room was fun too and a colleague and mine managed to do the safe challenge on expert mode. There is a lot to do there and we had... More

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.
