The Importance Of Location For Casinos & Resorts

Four Casinos with Great Locations

Hospitality venues such as casinos and resorts are not unlike private homes when it comes to the importance of location. Here are four casino destinations with the finest surroundings, from the Cavern Club in Liverpool to Buckingham Palace in the capital.

Home of the Beatles – Grosvenor Casino Leo – Liverpool

Liverpool is a fascinating city, and in recent history has become well-known throughout the world as the home of the Beatles. The Cavern Club where they played is still going strong today, and the cosy surroundings with vaulted ceilings of brick are a must-visit destination for fans of the Fab Four (and live tribute acts provide a fitting soundtrack for anyone embarking upon a pop pilgrimage). Other leading attractions within this friendly city are the artworks of the Tate Liverpool, and the natural history, science, and other exhibits housed within the extensive World Museum (which also features a planetarium).

Liverpool is also home to one of the finest casinos in the United Kingdom today, Grosvenor Casino Leo. Its doors are open every hour of every day, so whether you’re a night owl or a morning lark the place is ready to cater to your betting desires. Live sports betting is accessible (as might be expected in soccer-mad England), as are a wide variety of slots including jackpot slots for those who dream of winning big. Roulette (in both electronic and traditional formats) is available, as is blackjack, with a separate poker room for budding card sharks. Players can refresh themselves at the bar and restaurant either to celebrate/commiserate or as a mid-session pit stop.

The United Kingdom has a fantastic array of places to play and the most popular casinos in the UK offer amazing jackpots and popular games. From the urban sophistication of the capital to more scenic areas further afield, including a casino within easy reach of a famous British castle.

Yorkshire Delight – Opera House

Urban settings are popular for casinos in the UK thanks to ready access to big city attractions, but there’s something to be said for more scenic surroundings. Located in the Yorkshire coastal town of Scarborough, the Opera House is close to the unique and haunting site of Scarborough Castle. This medieval fortress is now half in ruins and offers stunning views of the town, and of the North Sea. The beach and SEA LIFE Scarborough offer different approaches to the sea, with penguins and seals among the most popular animal exhibits.

Opera House Casino is also embedded in the heritage of this picturesque Yorkshire setting, as its home is the former Royal Opera House. The gaming fun starts at 10 am every day of the week. Refreshments can be enjoyed at the Stage Bar, overlooking the gaming floor, and the Stalls Bar, a more intimate and smaller venue. Live tables (from 6 pm) are also accessible, with classic favorites such as three card poker, American roulette, Cajun stud poker, and blackjack available. Better yet, blackjack and three card poker come with progressive jackpots. Slot machines and electronic roulette terminals offer a more cutting-edge take on betting. But if you’re into cards then be sure to check out the weekly Texas Hold ‘Em tournaments.

Capital Attraction – The Hippodrome Casino London

No discussion of leading UK locations would be complete without considering London, which has been the predominant city in the British Isles for longer than most countries have existed. This preponderance of population (the Greater London population is around 9.4 million people, out of a UK total of 67 million) means that a huge proportion of the country’s leading cultural attractions are located within the capital. Within walking distance, casino-goers can reach the British Museum, one of the foremost global sites of antiquities spanning the whole world and numerous millennia, with exhibits such as Egyptian mummies and art from Ancient Greece. The London Eye, one of the capital’s most popular attractions, is just as close and is the perfect spot for fantastic views of the urban skyline.

The Hippodrome Casino itself is located in the city’s world-famous West End theatrical district, previously putting on variety performances then serving as a nightclub before becoming a casino. Players combining betting with a girl’s night will love to see Magic Mike live, while drinks are available at Boozy Time if you’re feeling thirsty. Meanwhile, the award-winning Heliot Steak House serves up fantastic fare courtesy of Executive Chef Ioannis Grammenos. On the gaming front, there are multiple floors of betting distractions, including the only dice table in central London, over 100 electronic gaming machines, baccarat, roulette, and blackjack.

Prime Spot – Les Ambassadeurs

A capital attraction that has an even better position is the swankiest of the entries of our quartet, Les Ambassadeurs. Located in a Victorian townhouse, this opulent gambling venue is a short walk away from Buckingham Palace, the primary residence of the British monarch where tourists flock all year round to watch the changing of the guard. More recently, Buckingham Palace has opened up to tours, and the Queen’s Gallery exhibits a broad range of royal treasures for visitors to admire. Continue east past this seat of majesty and you will soon come to a more ancient royal location. Westminster Abbey has seen every coronation since William the Conqueror was crowned in 1066. This historic, gothic church is right by the Palace of Westminster, where the UK Parliament works in the shadow of Big Ben (within Elizabeth Tower).

Les Ambassadeurs is open on a 24/7 basis and provides players with world-class dining in the art deco-inspired restaurant where diners can appreciate Chinese, Indian, Middle Eastern, or European cuisine. In the Marble Room, there are a quintet of gaming tables, with more gaming opportunities in the Leopold Room, while roulette and blackjack are accessible within the Gold Room. The two smaller private gaming sections in the Palace Rooms are the last word in extravagance, with a ceiling of gold leaf, intricate carpets, and polished marble. Three card poker and baccarat are also among the betting possibilities in this most opulent of settings.

Location is the hallmark of a wise property decision, whether buying a home or picking a casino. This diverse array of UK locations all offer something a little different for players.
