Poker Room at the Olympic Park Aspers Casino
I do know that the Aspers Casino that is located in the Olympic Park has proven to be a very popular venue with poker players looking to play poker tournaments in London.
One of the main reasons as to why many poker tournament players are prepared to make their way to that venue is that the transport links are excellent, which is a very important thing to keep in mind when trying to travel across London, as the road network can be a nightmare at the best of times.

Play Poker at the G Casino Piccadilly
I have often been put off visiting the G Casino Piccadilly, due to its location, for no matter at what time of day or night you visit it can be sheer bedlam outside and it is a very busy part of central London to say the least.
However it is of course up to you whether you visit or not and if you wish to do so you will of course need to know the address which is 3-4, Coventry St, London, W1D 6BL, for details of any and all upcoming poker tournament they hold in their poker room give them a call on 020 7287 7887.
Poker Room at the Genting Casino Chinatown
One place you should certainly visit when in London apart from any of the poker venues listed throughout this guide is Chinatown, by doing so you can do some shopping or have a fantastic meal, which will certainly set you up for an evening playing poker.
In fact, you are not going to have to venue outsider of Chinatown to play poker you simply need to call into the Genting Casino in Chinatown!
That venue really is one of the easiest to find in central London for it is on 93-107 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, Green Park and you can give them a call on 020 7494 3020 to reserve your seat in any upcoming poker tournament, of which they do have many!
Grosvenor Barracuda Casino Poker Room
The Barracuda Casino Poker Room is owned and operated by Grosvenor Casinos, and I have to say out of the many London based casinos and poker rooms that I have visited I have always enjoyed my visits to that one.
For reference up until not that long ago that venues was known as simply the Gala Barracuda Casino however it has been rebranded into the Grosvenor family of venues, and they really have spared no expense on making their poker room and for that matter the casino a must visit place.
The address of the venue is quite grand and impressive too being as it is located at 1, Baker Street, London, W1U 8ED it does of course have its own website you can peruse, but I have often find it easier to contact the venue directly on 0207 935 5013, as their staff are always friendly and informative.
In fact, their employees do know the local area very well, so if you want any travel advice on how to get too or from the venue safely and easily then do feel free to give them a bell as they will be only too happy to help you.
Poker Room at the Grosvenor Casino Russell Square
It can sadly be something of a nightmare if you are trying to get to some London based casinos by car, and that if often the case with the Grosvenor Casino Russell Square poker room, for unless you are extremely lucky your chances of getting a parking space on poker nights is going to be next to impossible.
As such if you are thinking of visiting that venue which for reference is located on 61-66, Russell Square, London, WC1B 5JS and has the 020 7833 1881 telephone number, try and look at some alternative ways to travel to and from the venue, rather than risk missing the starting time of the poker tournament due to you either being stuck in traffic or not being able to part your car!
Poker Tournaments at the Grosvenor Golden Horseshoe Casino
You may not be familiar with the Grosvenor Golden Horseshoe Casino in which you are going to find a fairly large and impressive poker room, for it has only recently changed its name from the Gala Queensway Casino.
That venue is another one that is fairly straight forward to find being as it is located on 79-81, Queensway, London, W2 4QH, to find out when their next poker tournaments are scheduled you and visit their website or call the venue directly with any additional questions that you may have on 020 7221 8788.
Poker Tournaments at the Hippodrome Casino
It is at 1 Cranbourn Street, London WC2H 7AJ that you are going to find my last highly recommended poker venue in London and that is the one inside the Hippodrome Casino, and the phone number for that venue is 0207 769 8888.
One thing to be aware of regarding this particular poker player’s paradise is that it can and does get extremely busy, and as such if you are interested in taking part in any poker tournaments that are held there you should book your seat well in advance.
However, being such a very busy venue, that does of course have the obvious knock-on effect of the poker tournaments having some very unimpressive and large prize pools attached to them
