The 17 Coolest Crazy Golf Courses In London

Crazy Golf London

Fancy a spot of crazy golf in London? We’ve found sixteen fun and quirky mini golf courses for you to try.

In recent years, pop-up crazy golf courses have become a bit of a ‘thing.’ There are no fewer than eleven dotted throughout central London, on rooftops, in abandoned WW2 bunkers, shopping malls, parks and beer gardens. Or head to the outskirts of the city where you can find giant open-air courses with up to 36 holes – and if someone hasn’t had a tantrum after all those, you really aren’t trying.

1-5) Plonk: Battersea, Hackney, Camden, Islington, Peckham

For big fun in small spaces, Plonk have set up shop in a variety of pubs across London. You can try their psychedelic glow-in-the-dark course at the Four Thieves in Battersea, the People’s Park Tavern in Hackney, in Camden Market, Peckham Levels or at The Victoria Tavern in Islington. Oh, and since they’re all either in or next to a pub, you can grab a celebratory/commiseration drink when you’re all done.

6-8) Putt In The Park: Battersea, Acton, Wandsworth

For a classy outdoor putting experience on a rain-free day, pay a visit to one of three Putt In The Park locations at Battersea Park, Acton Park or Wandsworth Park. They have clubhouse cafés and, by virtue of their park locations, are the perfect complement to an after-game picnic. You can even take a Google tour of the courses on their website! Book a slot now with Fever for Battersea, Acton, or Wandsworth.

9-10) Swingers Crazy Golf, Aldgate and Oxford Circus

These two multi-million pound courses are a joy to putt on. Swingers in the City is based in a WW2 bunker almost directly underneath the Gherkin, while Swingers West End takes over part of a former department store off Oxford Circus. Both venues offer two luxurious nine-hole courses to choose from, along with street food from some of London’s best vendors, such as Patty an Bun and DF Mexico. It’s very la-di-da, although due to the free-flowing cocktails, strictly for adults only. See our full Swingers Crazy Golf review.

11) Puttshack, Westfield London

Puttshack Lifestyle 1

This new operation – at the mighty Westfield shopping mall in West London – is London’s most high-tech crazy golf experience. Magical sensors track every tap and flick of the ball, keeping score, assigning turns, and generally enabling some next-level putting action. The inventive challenges draw on beer pong, trivia quizzes, and other unexpected elements.

12) Junkyard Golf, Shoreditch

Their first crazy golf course was literally built out of random junk. But their swizzy current set up, in the Truman Brewery off Brick Lane, delivers no fewer than FOUR nine-hole grungy mini golf courses with lots of UV paint, weird sculptures and even a hall of mirrors, while a bar serves up all your favourite drinks. (There are also a lot of puns that don’t really make any sense!) Again, this one’s just for grown-ups, folks.

13) Birdies Crazy Golf, Stratford

OK, sure, it’s actually croquet, but we’re throwing it in, because it’s a competitive game of hitting balls with sticks. It’s on the roof of Tobacco Dock in Wapping throughout the summer. Find out more on their website.
