London Totally Bowled Over - Finsbury Square Bowling Green Goes Online



A quintessentially British sport typically played by old people, usually on zimmer frames, sometimes with false teeth and often called Ethel or Albert.

Well not anymore.

Finsbury Square in Moorgate is the first public bowling green in the UK which can be booked online, rink by rink, last minute and via mobile phone. The public bowling green is slap, bang in the heart of London and an absolutely perfect location for a lunch time or evening bowling session combined with a sandiwch and a couple of beers. Whether looking to have a client meeting, catch up with a couple of friends or go outside with your colleagues, the Finsbury Square bowling green could not be a better location for lawn bowls in London. Why have a meeting in an artificially lit, sweaty meeting room when you could be outside doing business?

There are six rinks (bowling lanes) to choose from with prices for two players, four players or six players and slots bookable by the hour. There is also a pop-up street food cafe overlooking the green to combine your game with bite to eat and something to quench your thirst. Yes the British weather is about as consistent as its government, but you can book a slot last minute via the mobile app (download here

So book a slot online now, grab some cucumber sandwiches and Pimms and head down to Finsbury Square today!
