Hi, I'm hoping to find a decent pub within walking distance of the Shard that I can hire for a Christmas game of Skittles. Ten Pin Bowling could also work, but the important thing is not to have to walk for miles.... Any thoughts or recommendations? Emma
You would be looking for the tudor rose on Blandord st in Marlebone otherwise its a trip up to Hampstead for the freemasons arms for the other proper skittle alley in town, think there is also one out in hammersmith. Otherwise its american bowling and there my knowledge stops.
nearest ten pin bowling (south of the river) is probably at Elephant and Castle shopping centre.
Otherwise, Surray Quays, Queensway, British Museum, Westfield shopping centre Stratford, Brick Lane and Finsbury Park all have ten pin bowling alleys in the vicinity.
