De la Bowl
London’s first urban lawn bowls experience has landed at the Social Fun & Games Club on Stratford’s Roof East. Already a big hit down under, lawn bowls is coming to London and it’s getting a hip-hop make over. Get your claw grips out, gather a gang of six and take to the green to throw some absolute shots. Recommended for teams of 6, a lane costs £48 for 40 minutes – the hip-hop is free. roofeast.com

Pigmy Hippos at Duke of Sussex
Waterloo is getting its very own petting zoo housing pygmy hippos. The Duke of Sussex, one of Hippo Inns’ ventures, is turning its outdoor terrace into a petting zoo for the summer. Any traveller with time to spare before their train can walk up the road and hang out with some mini hippos whilst wallowing in the sunshine on the Duke of Sussex terrace, making their wait a lot more enjoyable. For guests who are a little scared to pet the actual hippos, the Duke of Sussex will have lots of Hungry Hippo’s games on hand to be played through the months meaning everyone can get in on the hippo action. The Duke of Sussex will be swapping out regular bacon for hippo bacon in their signature cheese burger, and will also be having a hippopotamus dedicated weekly pub quiz.
