When you're looking for a family day out with a difference in Bloomsbury, there really is so much that you can see and do. With literature, art and a number of other areas to explore, you'll struggle to find a day in which you don't have something to do as a family.
However, if you are looking for something to really delight kids and adults alike and give you an all-round day to remember, selecting the right venue will be key. We recommend looking towards the fantastic Bloomsbury Lanes, a great bowling alley with a difference that has so much more to offer than just bowling. It'll keep you busy all day and into the evening.
A bowling alley might sound somewhat vanilla when it comes to seeking out a great place to spend the day, but thankfully Bloomsbury Lanes is more than just a bowling alley. Of course, that's not to say you shouldn't include a game or two in your day out.
The alley has eight lanes to take to for a game, but for those who are looking for a more intimate experience that's just for them and their family, there's always the chance to hire the private King Pin suite. With five lanes, the suite will allow you and your family all the space in the world to bowl without anyone else interrupting your game.
As well as bowling, the King Pin suite is home to a private ping pong table, a pool table and arcade games. As if that wasn't enough, you can also show off your skills in the private karaoke room without the embarrassment of having to sing in front of a room filled with strangers or take to the cricket pitch with a state of the art simulator that allows you to test your skills at the crease.
Finally, after a day filled with exciting and competitive family games, the kids will no doubt have built up an appetite, and you can round off a fantastic family day with a treat at Bloomsbury Lanes' all-day diner.
It might look like any other bowling alley diner, albeit a little more classy, but Ray's is home to some fantastic American classics, including the Strike Burger, which was once voted the second best burger in all of London, and a range of exciting pizzas.
The restaurant itself is well decorated and features comfortable booth seating in which you can just chill out and enjoy your meal after a tiring day of entertaining the whole family.
