No we’re not talking about cricket; we’re talking about bowling with skittles. This is a popular sport in England, and if you’re starting to feel pangs of homesickness for some all-American entertainment then you’ll be in for a blast when you spend and evening at the All Star Lanes which is found at the Whiteleys Shopping Centre in Bayswater, London. When you’re living in London and you want to get out of your new London rental and enjoy sport without getting wet, chilled to the bone, or dirty, then American style bowling can’t be beaten.

The All Star Lanes offer a complete experience and you can do more than just bowling. The entire experience is themed as an old style American bowling alley, and they host themed events and parties throughout the year. There is a diner attached to the alley and it’s as American as can be, with real catsup to boot! You can book a meal or even a private party through the venue and hold a karaoke evening as part of the fun. One of the great special offers is the Eat Drink Bowl evening where you get a two course meal, and fabulous cocktail and a game of bowling for £26 per person.

You’d be surprised at the amount of hidden treasures that this city has on offer to guarantee you a good time when you’re here. You don’t have to spend every day traipsing round the historical monuments when you have centers like Whiteleys and the All Star Lanes to give you a unique and entertaining experience while you are living in London. The most important part of living here is to get out of your new rental and explore you neighborhood. Each suburb has multi-cultural gems within the leafy lanes and cobbled streets. If you’re living in Bayswater you’ll find a wealth of things to do and places to visit without leaving the suburb or hopping onto a train.
