Best Casinos in London
10 Nov

London isn’t traditionally thought of as one of the world’s classic stops for casino lovers but a quick look at what the city has to offer reveals some amazing choices where you can go and play now. The United Kingdom also isn’t known for having great weather for most of the year, but if you want to be entertained indoors at the tables with high-quality service then it’s definitely worth checking out.

So which are the best casinos to visit in London? It obviously depends on needs and taste but there’s something to suit everyone.

Empire Casino

Empire Casino is as close as you can get to Las Vegas when in Europe. Located in Leicester Square, this property houses 55,000 square feet of gaming floor over two floors.

Open around the clock, gamblers have access to a full range of traditional table games and the Kings Sports Bar upstairs where typical pub grub and snacks are served in front of big screens showing major sports events from around the world. Definitely a spot to put on the itinerary.

Hippodrome Casino

Many gamblers rate the Hippodrome Casino as the best of the lot. It’s definitely the biggest and located on the corner of Cranbourn Street and Charing Cross Road in Westminster right in the centre of the capital.

The casino only opened a decade ago and has already garnered multiple awards including Best Land-based Casino at the Totally Gaming Awards. It is open 24/7 allowing gamblers to enjoy themselves whenever they see fit.

The Hippodrome also features the largest poker room in the city with regular tournaments and cash games running most of the time.


Crockfords is aimed at the upper end of the market, and has an exclusive vibe to it. This is not a casino where you are going to hear slot machines going wild. William Crockford, founder, created the gentleman’s club with the intention of it being fit for a king, and he wasn’t too far off. Many English aristocrats have visited over the years.

Located in hi-so Mayfair, Crockfords offers an upper-class dining experience with a strict dress code. Men are required to wear suits and women must wear formal or cocktail dresses.

Crockfords is also the property that became notorious for hauling Phil Ivey through the courts over a £7.7 million disputed win. The American was accused of “edge sorting”, a technique where sharp-eyed gamblers could read the back of playing cards because of a manufacturing fault.

Aspers Casino

Aspers Casino is another favourite in the city of London. Located at Westfield Stratford City shopping centre, it is considered the largest casino venue in the United Kingdom spreading over 65,000 square feet.

As well as providing every gambling option guests could ever want, the bar and restaurant options are phenomenal. Clary’s restaurant is loved for its excellent menu. The Sky Bar is perfect for entertaining friends in a 60-seat VIP area and Tanzibar, a sports bar, shows sports around the clock with automated kiosks available to place wagers.

As you can see, London is one of the best casino destinations available today and there is much more than our picks of the bunch worth checking out.
