It’s all change at Charrington Bowl with the 32-lane bowling centre being transformed into Hollywood Bowl Tolworth this month, following a half a million-pound refurbishment.

Work completed on the 32,000-sq. foot site at the end of July, just in time for their key operating period.
Steve Burns, CEO at Hollywood Bowl Group said: “We are delighted to have transformed one of our largest and centrally located centres, just in time for the busy summer holiday trading window. The addition of a brand-new diner, amusements and bar, mean that while the new Hollywood Bowl Tolworth is the perfect place for customers to take their family over the holidays, it’s also an ideal spot for adult and corporate socials.

“We’ve been receiving very positive feedback from customers and are really looking forward to seeing what the future holds for Tolworth.”
