Curling in London and Surrey

This season’s top trend is Curling! Here’s where to try it…

Alpine Village Curling, Kingston, 10 November to 2 January

Head to the incredibly festive town centre for seasonal treats, a market and a spot of curling. One lane can host up to four people and costs £10 for a 45 minute game. Open 10am to 8pm. Staff will explain the rules and techniques before you start, to get the most out of your experience. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. There are no restrictions on minimum age, although given the weight of the curling stones, the minimum age for a child is four.

The Curling Club, Southbank Centre, 1 November to 3 January

Live entertainment, music, alpine inspired street food and cocktails await at the Southbank Centre where you can enjoy a spot of competitive curling! There will be a total of five curling sheets, allowing couples and groups of up to ten per sheet to enjoy the game. Open daily from 11am to 11pm.

The Curling Club, The Shack Takeover, Twickenham, 30 November to 24 December

With a 300 person capacity and three curling sheets for the taking. Available Wednesday to Sunday and from 11am to 11 or 12pm – dependent on the day – groups of all sizes and ages can also enjoy a feast of wintery street food and drink, complete with live entertainment and music. Corporate Packages start at £75 and Pay for Play experiences from £24.

King’s Cross, 9 November to 26 February

Inspired by alpine slopes and ski chalets of years gone by, Coal Drops Yard will be transformed into an illuminated festive wonderland. There will be six multi-coloured, sustainable curling lanes for just £7 per person (children under 12 play for free when accompanied by an adult). Teams of up to six can play from 12pm to 8pm every day, with sessions lasting 45 minutes, then head to the après ski bar!
