We're not suggesting this for an entire day out, but it's definitely a handy place to know about if you're visiting the London Eye, London Dungeon, London Aquarium or Shrek's Adventure, because it's practically next-door.
All of those big kid's attractions are within two minutes of each other, and there will come a point when you need to stop for some lunch. That's where the NAMCO centre comes in. Think of it as a McDonald's with a indoor funfair attached.
You'd never guess this from the outside, but they've got an indoor hidden in there, twelve bowling lanes, a lazer maze, and three floors of arcade games (including those big car racing ones that you can sit inside). They've also got lots of those traditional funfair games that you used to play at the seaside, like crane grabs and drop-a-penny slots, plus lots of retro games like table football and air hockey.
The bottom floor is more for the adults. You can find some pool tables, a sports TV and a bar down there.
