Visited sunday afternoon for a public skate. When on the ice there was 1 member of staff on the ice doing a 1 on 1 lesson telling everyone to stay around the edges and not go into the middle. There were young children falling over and no one available to help. I do not agree having lessons on when there... More

We did just bowl there. I didn't like it there much, because it was loud, noisy and crowded. Somebody spilled at the toilet. Disgusting! But at least: They didn't care what shoes you wear. So they didn't make us rent their stinking bowling-shoes!!

Thank Bob x

I must warn any tourist not to visit this place...it is dark and dingy and advertised the fact with notices stuck to the wall that it has a theft problem ... No kidding !! My son had his jacket stolen and my wife had her purse stolen and we hardly left our possessions out of our sight for less than... More

Having read the reviews after booking we were worried... Looks like we didn't need to be. Clearly visible signage so we found our way to the rink. Staff at the rink were very cheerful, friendly and helpful. My son found himself stranded on the ice on the far left of the ice where there are no railings and 2 lads... More

We went here because it was part of the London Pass. Not in the most desirable of areas. We were told it was a 40 minute wait. We went shopping at some of the souvenir shops up the street (again not a fabulous area). We got back and were given a lane that was also assigned to another family. The... More

So me and a couple of friends I made at the hostel went bowling here because we couldn't find anything to do on a rainy day. It was a decent place and the staff were lovely. Better then a lot of bowling alleys I've been to.

The staff is very friendly, the food is quite good and cheap for fast food!! You can bowl, ice skate or have fun in arcade games for a very good price. I strongly recommend!!

Cloakroom staff were... More

I was victim of DISCRIMINATION at this place, had SECURITY called on me and was TAKEN OUT of the ice rink only because I spoke to a member of staff in Portuguese (my first language) by accident. She probably simply assumed that I've said something rude even though afterwards I had spoken to her in English, in a calm and... More

Overall my visit was a good one. My partner and I originally visited ice and bowl to have a game of bowling but it was fully booked for the day which was ashame. The lady at the desk seemed quite abrupt and slightly unhelpful when we asked her if there were any available sessions. We then decided to walk around... More

Staying in Notting Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighborhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
