Unexciting mixture of old and new arcade games.

Went to Namco just recently as it was recommended by friends. Also I was trialling a new tech product - Kerv a contactless payment ring in London. I got a discount code KERV10 and heard it was great for London Travel (it can be used on the underground at the Oyster) also in London lots of contactless opportunities. I even... More

We visited arcade games level, therefore this review is about this part of Namco Funscape only. The whole place is under the ground, you need to take moving stairs to go down. There is a mix of arcade games, penny pusher machines (10p only), crane grab machines, old and new. It takes about 30 min to try most of it.... More

On booking a time slot for the London dungeon at 12.45 me and my partner decided to come into this arcade as a pass time when we saw the escape room advertised do this was advertised to take around 15 minutes. There are various levels to this arcade and the security were more helpful at navigating us than the staff.... More

Great place to go if you are into arcades. Bar downstairs is spacious and great to have a few drinks before playing on the games. Winning tickets to then choose your prize is much better than just "normal" slot machines. With the right people, it can be a competitive but a fun evening. Always end up here before going home...

A lot of reviews imply that this attraction is a bit tacky. I suppose arcade games are a bit tacky - but I don't think I felt this way when I was 10! It is big. The games are varied and well priced. Most games reward wins with tickets (actually vast quantities of tickets that pour out of the machines).... More

The place does a full arcade with token machines, bowling alleys, drinks, food and sports on the big screens - not much else needed to have a good evening in the city. Never really too busy considering how close it is to London Eye etc. on Southbank which makes it a good place to go for something a bit different.... More

Namco Funscape is one of the few places left in London to play Arcades. Positives is that it is pretty big and its still fun to play classics like Tekken and House of the Dead. On the downside is that most of the Arcades are old and the latest titles are not available. It would be good to bring in... More

Visited many times over the last 5 years, food, drinks, bowling, bumper cars, arcade, media and everything else under the sun is in this place! If its raining, or the kids are bored, get yourself in here, something for everyone, and served hot and cold food and drinks at decent prices!

Staying in Southbank

Neighbourhood 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.
