1. Boom Battle Bar
This battle bar has locations all over the place now. It is important to book ahead and check their website because they offer so many more games than just mini golf.
Actually, Boom Battle Bar celebrate the fact that they’re the first battle bar. Also, it’s important to note that some locations don’t have a mini golf area so definitely check out their various locations and games available. Some of my faves being axe throwing, shuffle board, mini golf and darts.
I love the Aldgate location because there are many battle games to choose from and a mini golf course all in one place! You can also order food and drink, so it really is a one-stop spot. Not only this, but you can book hen-dos, birthday parties, work parties and so much more. You’ve got to check them out.
Location: Aldgate East, London
Cost to play: Starts at £15

Located in Croydon and also referred to as the ‘World of golf Croydon’, you’ll find a driving range, golf lessons available, and an 18-hole mini golf course! Which is the real reason you’re here. This one is great for families or those wanting to book a fun day out.
The set-up and decor are perfect for kids and I’ve heard that you can throw a great kids’ birthday party here. I’ve also heard they’re opening a new cafe soon.

3. Junkyard Golf Club
Wear neon when you go to the Junkyard golf club! It’s so much fun to see your clothes and shoes glow. The atmosphere is so cool with great music (some might find it a bit loud).

4. Jurassic Falls Adventure Golf
This specific location is great for families and is located in Walthamstow. On their website, you can find other locations that aren’t all in Central London. It’s also important to note that not every location is indoors. So definitely look into this before you go.
The outdoor parks are great for kids, especially with how the courses are set up and decorated. Depending on when you want to go, you can sometimes get your hands on off-peak tickets which means you get a bargain on the ticket price!
MHM Tip: Some courses are 18+ so double check this before you book to play.

5. Pop Golf
This mini golf spot is perfect if you love pop music! There are three locations but my favourite is located in Wembley box park, this course plays nothing but pop music, and 9 holes with you guessed it, a pop theme. You’ll even spot cassette tapes hanging from the ceiling. Does anyone remember what those are?
Check their website because they regularly have various half-term offers. Pop Golf is a really fun mini golf venue and also a great location near the train station, not stuffed in Central London. You can also order food and drinks, or head out to the box park where you’ll find food options from all over the world.
Location: Wembley Box Park, London
Cost to play: £17 for an adult & drink. Students get a cheeky discount.
6. Putt in the park
This is one of my go-to mini golf recommendations probably because of the location. There are a few locations around London for Putt in the park, but my favourite one is the Battersea Park location. At the end of your mini golf session, I suggest sitting down and ordering a delicious wood-fired pizza.
Putt in the park mini golf does get booked up pretty quickly, especially in the summer months. I don’t think I’ve ever seen it without a queue of people waiting to play. So I suggest booking online rather than showing up on the day. Just to guarantee you can get in.
This mini golf course is also outdoors. Don’t let that hold you back though. The course is more natural looking with hills, mini ponds, and fake grass. A far stretch from some of the neon-lit courses I have recommended! It’s located in a great area with so many other things to do. You can visit the Battersea animal shelter and make a donation, or walk along the Thames, I mention other activities in Battersea Park in my London parks guide.
Location: Battersea Park, Albert Bridge Road, London
Cost to play: From £10
Puttshack is such a fun indoor mini-golf spot in London. Actually, there are a few locations, but the white city one is a regular hot spot for many.
Puttshack prides itself on providing a unique experience and says, “We’ve rewritten the rules of mini golf – pairing modern tech with crazy courses and cool vibes for one hell of a good time.” Puttshack combines mini golf in London with modern tech in London so well. So, what are you waiting for? Go see for yourself.
Puttshack White city also has fun offers, for example, Birthday golfers get to play for free.
Location: Westfield, White City, London

8. Swingers Crazy Golf
Another super cool indoor mini golf course. There are multiple locations but I’ve been told that the West End location is the best.
There are 3 different courses you can do, the helter-skelter course being a popular choice, or the lighthouse course if you fancy a challenge; 5 bars, 5 different food choices, a rooftop terrace and it is wheelchair accessible. They have packages for small groups and you can hire out a whole area. I’d definitely recommend adding this spot to your list. It’s already on mine.
Location: 15 John Prince’s Street, London
Cost to Play: Starts at £12
PS… Want more to do in London? I highly recommend Get Your Guide to book fun activities and days out. You can download their app, check availability and book in advance. I book all my tours through them. They also have a great 24-hour cancellation policy. I recommend this bike tour!
