London is considered by most to be one of the truly great cities of the world, boasting an enviable array of cultural and historic sights and attractions for visitors to explore, fantastic nightlife and fine galleries and museums – as well as thriving casinos these days. However if you want to take in the finest in modern art during your trip, then the Saatchi Gallery is somewhere you can’t afford to miss, while St Paul’s Cathedral has been a centrepiece of the city since it was built – even surviving the Blitz. Then again, if you are a gaming fan, where will you find those aforementioned London casinos?
Start off with The Casino at the Empire, which can be found at 5-6 Leicester Square and is London’s biggest casino, measuring over 55,000 square feet in size. For those interested in the history of the city, the name is derived from the fact that it used to be a music hall called the Empire Ballroom, but these days it houses hundreds of electronic slot machines and 30 table games – including American roulette, blackjack, punto banco, pai gow and three-card poker. If you haven’t played some of these games before, it would be an idea to try them out for free at an online casino, because you don’t want to lose all your money, especially when the venue also offers plush surroundings and several bars and restaurants. Moving on from here, the Grosvenor G Casino at 3-4 Coventry Street, in Piccadilly, is open until 6 a.m. every day. You can get away with smart casual attire at this thoroughly modern casino, and roulette is big here – with varieties including classic, pinball and double bonus spin roulette all on offer, alongside blackjack, slots and poker. It is smaller casino than the Empire, but offers a late-night bar and live sports events on the big televisions as further bonuses for visitors.
By this point, you may want somewhere a little quieter, making the Claremont Club the jackpot, being the most luxury of gambling venues in the city. This is an even smaller casino, but offers an entirely different London gambling experience. It is located at 44 Berkeley Square in the swanky Mayfair district and offers exclusive table gaming. There are no slots here, just English roulette, blackjack and baccarat across six tables, and an atmosphere that exudes class. Thus, although London remains famed primarily for its rich history and culture, you will find no shortage of gaming and other action when the sun goes down.
