Last weekend, we had the pleasure to visit Westfield Stratford City for the first time and we were impressed with the lovely shops, over 70 places to eat and drink, 17 cinema screens and 14 bowling lanes at All Star Lanes.
This summer Westfield Stratford City has planned something for the whole family, from kids favourite characters and workshops to live entertainment and exclusive shopping vouchers. While we were there, we signed up to Westfield Kids Club, which offers exclusive children related discount offers and advance notice on events for children under 8 years old. By joining Westfield Kids Club, little man received a welcome pack, a goody bag with a magazine, colouring book and crayons.
It’s been a long time since we went bowling, so we decided to visit All Star Lanes located on the second floor at Westfield. The Westfield Stratford City branch is All Star Lanes’ biggest bowling venue matched with a modern American restaurant and cocktail bar. It is the first venue to offers visitors the opportunity to eat behind the lanes, featuring All Star Lanes’ legendary drinks service. There is a seating area just behind the lanes, so you can relax while waiting for your turn to play.
We had such a great time bowling, the fun started from the moment we put our shoes on, little man found them rather funny. Once the game started, he was very excited he was able to carry the ball on his own, and he even scored a few points using the ramp. I know it doesn’t matter who wins, but for the record I was ahead during the first half of the game. Not too sure what happened, as suddenly hubby caught up and ended up winning the game. As they say, winning is not everything!
The whole family enjoyed Bowling at All Star Lanes and our time at Westfield Stratford City. After our fun game of bowling, we walked around and checked out the Great British Chill Out Zone which offers classic activities in a fun summer theme, with everything from foozball to ping pong, food tasting and more.
We are looking forward to our next visit to Westfield Stratford City. For more information on the summer activities at Westfield Stratford City, please visit http://uk.westfield.com/stratfordcity/summer
We were given a complimentary game of bowling at Westfield Stratford for review purposes. However the opinions expressed in this review are honest and my own.
