An interesting variety of games, although lacking in certain genres e.g. racing games. Quite expensive too. The motion simulator ended up being fairly disappointing due to being a cramped space, having a very small screen and having poor immersive sound. All in all a fun experience, but there are cheaper, more spacious local arcades to me so I have no... More

I visited with some work colleagues last month and I wasn't sure what to expect as i'd never been too anything like this before - a bar with arcade games. We was out for drinking purposes so we didn't actually go on any of the arcade games. We was instead, occupied by the ping pong tables and beer pong table.... More

We popped in here to relive childhood joy of the arcade machines, unfortunately, a lot of the machines we attempted either swallowed the money or were worn out / unplayable, which is a shame. Some of the games however worked well, but as a lot are tailored towards the ticket style games, they can get costly quite fast. Overall, 3/5,... More

Not a great place for dedicated arcade gamers or those not wanting to spend much money. The arcade machines are mainly redemption games for prizes and tickets and the three dancing stage machines are not kept in good condition (DDR X2's pads have been faulty since the first time I played over 2 years ago, still are broken today) which...

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

Staying in Southbank

Neighborhood Profile
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.
