London is recognised for its iconic landmarks; the London Eye and Houses of Parliament are just a few to mention – oh, and its bustling city life, but did you know that it’s also a popular destination for casino-goers? Okay, so it’s never going to compete with the likes of Las Vegas, but London is considered to be one of the best gambling capitals in Europe.
These are the best land-based casinos in London:
The Grosvenor Victoria Casino
Affectionately known as ‘The Vic’, was founded in the 1960’s, originally as the Victoria Sporting Club. The Grosvenor Victoria Casino is one of the largest and busiest Casinos in the UK, and open 24hrs a day. In the sixties it was ‘the’ place to be seen, with American residents flying over to London purely to join in the excitement. Over the years, the interior may have changed, but the popularity hasn’t. ‘The Vic’ sits below ‘The Poker Room’ which is one of the largest and most iconic poker rooms in Europe. A wide range of casino games can be enjoyed here, including Roulette, Blackjack, Punto Banco, Three Card Poker, Electronic Roulette, Jackpot Machines and Casino stud Poker.
Also known as East London’s biggest 24/7 nightlife venue! Established in 2011, it’s one of the newest kids on the block, but it is matching the competition with an extensive range of casino games including table games and slot machines, plus restaurants, bars, free entertainment and live sporting fixtures.
The Palm Beach Casino
Sitting in the heart of Mayfair, this casino boasts exceptional dining, drinking and gaming. This iconic casino recently underwent a £2,000,000 makeover and it’s an impressive one. Whether you enjoy cocktails before gaming or aim to be right in the heart of the action in the new bar and grill (where you can experience award-winning chef Zaman’s modern global cuisine in the contemporary restaurant) – The Palm Beach has something for all.
The Park Tower Casino
Situated in Belgravia, London, this is a chic 24hour casino with a luxury lounge bar and restaurant that overlook the gambling floor. With friendly and knowledgeable staff, this casino aims to please. Featuring private gaming rooms, slot machines and a casino floor with 4 American Roulette tables, 4 Blackjack tables, a Three-Card Poker table, and a Stud Poker table, as well as 6 Electronic Roulette tables – it’s easy to see why it’s a popular choice among the casino community.
