Play Crazy Golf In A Tunnel Beneath A Train Station

An underground crazy golf course is coming to The Vaults underneath Waterloo this winter, with a nine-hole course, cocktail bar and street food.

Birdies Crazy Golf is from the people behind Underground Film Club, which is also setting up home in The Vaults next month.

The subterranean golfing experience consists of loops, half-pipes and an elevated 5-ft drop onto the sixth hole. Competitive golfers can hunt out the hidden putt-off prizes, while the more chilled out can enjoy cocktails from clubhouse Caddy Shack.

More of a caddy than a golfer? Grab yourself a Tunnel Pass and enjoy the atmosphere without having to take a single swing. Resident DJs will be in rotation, and food is available at pop-up Rockadolla, which is by Richard Sandiford, head chef at Hawksmoor. Beats Great Yarmouth any day.

Birdies Crazy Golf is open six nights a week 11 November-20 December. Golf is £9 per person per round, book online. Tunnel entry without golf is £3 per person.

In defence of Great Yarmouth, the pirate crazy golf course is excellent. The one in the former Windmill Theatre should be avoided at al costs.

I've been (as part of a corporate event). The course is fairly compact and, to be honest, not brilliant. £9 is very expensive for a single round that won't take you longer than 15 minutes. The food, however, is fantastic. Hot dogs may not sound brilliant but they're loaded with genuinely fresh ingredients and grilled in front of you. That's an extra cost, of course.
