Bowling in Wiltshire | Add Free Entry

Ten-pin bowling is a great sport that everyone can enjoy, young or old, regardless of ability. A night out bowling can provide fantastic fun for a group of friends, work colleagues or family. Introduced into Britain in the 1960s, bowling enjoyed a period of huge popularity but fell on leaner times during the 1970s. However, it is back at full strength again and now there are even more bowling alleys than when the sport reached itís previous peak in the 1960s. It is estimated that there are more than 200 alleys in Britain today, so thereís bound to be one within easy reach of all but the most remote locations. If you are looking for a venue to enjoy a special celebration then a bowling alley could be just the place to go. Modern bowling alleys are more than just a venue for playing ten-pin bowling. Today they are giant social clubs complete with licensed bars, cafes, restaurants and ancillary amusements all included in one venue. Kids are very well catered for and this does much to add to their attraction as a venue for hours of of family fun. Thereís no need to go out and buy your own equipment as all alleys have excellent hire facilities, so you can literally just turn up and go bowling.
