Casinos in London

It would be grossly unfair to call London a 'city' in the same way that you’d use that word for the likes of Liverpool or Southampton. London isn’t just a city, it’s a sprawling metropolis, filled with boroughs, which have each got their own small towns and suburbs that are about the same size on their own as some of the smaller cities throughout the UK. It’s hardly surprising, therefore, that the capital is home to plenty of casinos that have their own personality and offer differing facilities.

Due to the size of the city and sheer number of casinos, it wouldn't be fesible (or helpful) to give you a blow-by-blow breakdown of every casino in London. So instead, we'll give you some advice in the broadest possible terms. If you’re someone who likes the glitz and the glamour, for example, then you’ll probably fancy heading somewhere the Ritz Casino Club in Piccadilly, so named because the casino floor itself is located in the old ballroom of the Ritz Hotel. Alternatively, you might want to have a look at the London Playboy Club, although be aware you can only enter if you’re a member or you’re with a member. The waitresses are dressed as, you guessed it, Playboy bunnies and high-stakes betting is positively encouraged.

Fear not, though, not every casino in London is for the glitterati. There are countless 'normal' casinos where the order of the day is fun and trying your hand at different things to see how you get on. The Aspers Casino at Westfield Shopping Centre in Stratford will interest you if that’s your bag. Another great classic casino is the Empire Casino, Leicester Square. More than a few well-known tournaments have been held here over the years.

When it comes to the location of all of the casinos, there’s a decent spread throughout the city. Mayfair is where you’ll find the more 'high-end' venues, whilst there about half a dozen of the more 'normal' casinos located in between Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square alone. Obviously, the Underground system in London is excellent, so you won’t have a problem getting from place to place.

Closed Casinos

As with any big town with great real estate, gaming venues in London are bound to chop and change every now and again. Some of the ones we've noticed disappear in the last couple of years are the Golden Nugget on Shaftesbury Avenue and its neighbour on the same street the Fox Poker Club, which are now both permanently closed. Another that has closed its doors is the Connoisseur Club within the Royal Garden Hotel along Kensington High Street in West London.
