A Miss-spent youth ?

I may have spent quite some time and money as a young man drinking beer, chasing women, playing video games, shooting pool etc....but the rest of it I just wasted.

The NAMCO station in County Hall houses what is essentially an amusement arcade. It's got bars, ten-pin bowling, dodgem cars and of course the inevitable video machines.

Some would say that County Hall has always been an amusement park (as the Former home of the Greater London Council), but if you want to keep your kids occupied for a few hours then here is you answer.

It's location also means it is handy when visiting more celebral and edifying amusements such as the Dali Universe or the Tate Modern.

On the other hand if you want to spend hours shooting little pixelated aliens, you'll be seventh heaven.

You will find the NAMCO station in County hall - opposite the Houses of Parliament

Open 10AM - midnight every day
