Ready Player One! We all like to relax on our days off, maybe you’ll play a small screen calming mobile game, or maybe something more mainstream, online with friends? Either way, video games come in all shapes and sizes, and almost all of us play in some way.
Ever wondered what goes into some of your favourite games? The London Games Festival celebrates all kinds of video games as well as the technology and development that goes on behind the scenes. This 10-day festival showcases over 300 different games from developers in over 20 countries and with over 25,000 attendees last year, the 2023 event is set to be better than before!
London Games Festival has something for everyone, no matter the games you enjoy or your experience with games so why not soak up all our capital has to offer whilst exploring the celebration? See below for all the info and I hope you have a fun time.
Local travel tip: If you're travelling into London from outside the city, and planning to stay for more than one day, use a bank or credit card for public travel around the city to get the best value fares. Check all terms and conditions before you travel. Don't bother to bring a car, the traffic is a nightmare and the parking expensive!
Tickets not yet available, but check back here and we'll post the link as soon as we can.
