When it comes to a fun day out with the kiddos in tow, crazy golf is right up there as an all round activity winner. Whether you fancy an all-singing, all-dancing indoors kinda number, or a more traditional outdoors round of adventure golf, or even a spot of foot golf, we've got the lowdown on where to score a hole in one of a day out in London with your little birdies.
Putt in the Park
Swing over to one of Putt in the Park's three London outlets, as well as one in sunny Essex, for an activity that's sure to be a hole in one in the fun stakes. Head over to Wandsworth Park, Battersea Park, Acton Park or Colchester where you'll find cool putting courses which have been specially designed to suit all abilities when it comes to a swing of the action.
Enchanted Village Adventure Golf
Over in the London Borough of Bromley you'll find Enchanted Village Adventure Golf which includes pitch and putt as well as Foot Golf. Its goal is to provide a healthy low-cost sporting activity to the local community, and we think it'll be everyone in the family's cuppa tee.

With locations dotted around town in Bank, White City and West Thurrock, these indoor high-tech mini golf experiences are an interactive experience that kids and grownups alike will love. It also has a pretty decent food and drinks menu to keep you and your mini golfers fuelled, but our fave part? The fact that it keeps score for you, so no one can cheat!
Junkyard Golf Club
Inspired by blockbuster movies, this graffiti-adorned spot, neon crazy golf paradise is a feast for the eyes, and the mad cocktail menu doesn't hurt matters either. It's indoors, it's a bit bonkers and we love it! Do not thought that young humans under 18 are only allowed here from Sunday to Thursday before 6pm: the rest of the time it's a kid-free zone.

Located at Borough Market, Horniman Museum, Camden Market and London Fields, quirky Plonk Crazy Golf was founded by a troop of set designers from the film industry who banded together for a common cause… to use their skills to create the greatest Crazy Golf courses imaginable and plonking them down around the Capital. The Camden and London Fields locations are the ones you need to head to (and before 5pm, weekdays) if you're bringing under 18s (and kids need to be at least 7 years old).
Under 18s are welcome before 5pm every day at this 9-hole digital dream, which you'll find nestled in Battersea Power Station. Packed to the brim with neon lights, gizmos, gadgets and obstacles, this is a family adventure that's deffo above par. It's cheeseburgers are rather fab too.

Based on Moby Dick this 18-hole course near Romford was created as a nod to the whale bones that sat at the toll-booth on nearby Whalebone Lane for most of the eighteenth century. The real bones are gone but there's plenty of skele-fun to be had at this whacky crazy golf spot. We recently tried it's other bigger, bolder version of crazy golf - Foot Golf - which scored big with the whole family. Whalebone Lane North, Romford RM6 6SB; www.golfkingdom.net/moby-golf
