Where to find world class golfing in London.
If you are planning to travel to London (once the travel bans and lockdown is lifted) and you are looking for the best places for crazy golf, London is packed with many crazy golf courses. For those of you looking for the best crazy golf courses in London, we made this list just for you.
London’s premier crazy golf course and bar, Swingers opened its doors to mini golf lovers and fun-seekers in 2016, after the success of its pop-up the previous year. Developed by the Institute of Competitive Socialising, Swingers is packed with everything that you need for a crazy golf experience.
Swingers in the City features two 9-hole courses, street food stands, and five cocktail bars serving a variety of fun golf-themed cocktails on a 16,000-square-foot located underneath the Gherkin, while the second venue, Swingers West End occupies part of a former department store and is fitted with two luxurious nine-hole courses, similar to Swinger in the City. Popular London street food vendors, such as Breddos Tacos and Patty & Bun are on-site to treat you the best bites and snacks.
Ever wondered what it would be like golfing and enjoying an amazing view from the rooftop of one of London’s coolest spots, Stratford’s Roof East? Well, it is an experience worth every minute spent. Birdies is a nine-hole crazy golf course that is packed with tricky courses filled with half-pipe ramps, loops, elevated drop and tubes. The venue is operated by pop-up cinema experts Rooftop Film Club and it features more than just an exciting crazy golf course with plenty to eat and drink. This adult-only course has everything you might want in a rooftop venue including cocktails hosted by RockaDollar Dogs and Spirited Mixers, craft beer, and brilliant music sets by resident DJs.
Dragon Quest Adventure Golf
Dragon Quest is an adventure-themed 18-hole crazy golf course for everyone. It is entertaining and fitted with massive dragon models which do not move (disappointing), but the course itself does not compromise with fun features. The paths are dotted with dragon footprints, there are caves, turrets, several water features, and serpentine sound effects to add to a nice touch of excitement as you and your kids take on each hole.
