This is one of the very best place's in London. Of course if you're a gambler, it goes without saying. If you're not.. Well, check out the website to see what else they have on offer.

The staff are wonderful, warm, welcoming,...more

We visited this centrally located casino and were able to use our MYVEGAS points. The Rewards Desk staff were fantastic and set up our free casino chips and tickets to a show. The show was the 4 Tunes, a group of four West End theatre actors who sing a whole variety of songs, everything from Bohemian Rhapsody to musical numbers. It was a great show, set in an intimate theatre of tables and...more
