Check out this new F1 Arcade in London

F1 Fans, we've found your perfect day/night out

Published: 01 Mar 2023

A thrilling new Formula One arcade has opened in St Paul's, London featuring 60 full-motion racing simulators for the perfect social gathering/comically competitive team outing.

The vibrant arcade boasts some of F1’s most iconic tracks, last seasons's cars, and allows you to test your reaction times and for the most realistic peek inside the hyper-fast world of Formula One.

You don’t have to be a professional or even an F1 fan to enjoy, and there are four skill levels spanning casual to pro. The simulators will vibrate and respond to every movement giving you every snap oversteer moment you could possibly desire. Players will also have the option to play solo or team up and race against each other. And because it's a simulator, you don't have to worry about ruining a hyper-expensive F1 car if you crash.

The location is decorated head to toe (of course) in F1 references featuring a radio wall with the most iconic F1 radio messages, pit wall featuring real F1 telemetry, LED lights showing track outlines and even sculptures made from real F1 engines.

Screens are dotted about the location showing races and for watch parties. Plus, there are even special F1 themed cocktails.
