I used to work close by so was a regular. I enjoyed my times there and always found the staff very helpful and friendly. It was very well managed by Tom and Gareth. I look forward to visiting again soon.

On a dreary Thursday some colleagues and I decided to have a go at Urban Golf.

So, although we arrived 30 minutes early and were incredibly polite, the staff here seemed to find it amusing that they were running at least an hour late?? Some bar staff were friendly but the rest just seemed to want to go home. Wouldn't attempt to come here again.

I have been to both Urban Golf sites many times, but this was the first time that I have played in their pairs tournament. The pairs tournament was great fun and a really good opportunity to meet some of Urban Golf regulars. I took my colleague with me and we were looked after really well by Ed and his team... More

We came here for a work team build. The venue is in a basement with a bar to one side and a series of golfing booths on the other. The booths each had a screen with a virtual green that you hit your ball against. There are a number of golf clubs to choose from, it's all set out quite... More

I'm very sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your experience at Urban Golf. Your group did have a large number of people in it - ideally, we would recommend smaller groups per simulator so that you can enjoy a regular game and play one of our 60 championship courses, but in this case it was arranged with the...

This is a great place to go as a group. We booked a golf simulator for two hours at a cost of £80 and three of us got through 6 holes in this time. The staff were friendly and very attentive and we enjoyed the experience very much. The range of ladies clubs was very limited e.g. no driver, 8... More

What a great way to keep your clubs swinging in the city. It's not cheap, but floor space isn't cheap in London, so you pay for what you get. Much better than City Golf!! Great setup, great looking venue, well planned out. Great experience every time!!

Staying in City of London

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
