Formerly a theatre, circus, and nightlclub, the iconic 93,000 square foot building situated in the very heart of London’s West End benefited from a 40 million pound investment and re-opened as the Hippodrome Casino in 2012.
The Hippodrome is now not only the biggest and most visited Casino in the UK but is also London’s most popular entertainment venue that has welcomed more than 4 million guests through its doors since opening. The venue offers an incredible three entire floors of gaming, a dedicated poker room, a cabaret theatre, six bars, and a number of high roller private rooms.

Each of the three floors offers a distinct gaming experience. The main floor occupies the heart of the former theatre with its full height ceiling stretching to the minstrel’s gallery.
