For some good old school fun, play bingo! The London Palace bingo hall is one of the biggest in the UK, with seating for over 2000 people. You'll find it on the top floor of Elephant & Castle's shopping centre, which may not be as glam as Hoxton, but this could all change swiftly as the whole area is undergoing a huge revamp. And yes, there have been calls of E&C becoming the new Shoreditch for the last decade or so. The bingo hall is open from 10.30 in the morning till midnight.
