Day out at the Lost Jungle London for a mini-golf adventure

By Emma McNamee – 11th April 2020
What I loved about The Lost Jungle, London:

You’d be forgiven for thinking you’re in a tropical paradise when the sun is shining at the Lost Jungle, a 36 hole adventure mini-golf course located just off J4 of the M1, near Edgware.


We’ve been a couple of times now, and it’s by far the most picturesque crazy golf course I’ve experienced, although rather out of place by the Watford By-Pass!  Handy for us as it’s just a 15-minute drive from St. Albans, though you’d almost think you‘d gone through a portal to a rainforest in South America or sub-Saharan Africa!

What’s particularly well thought out, is the choice of 2 courses that weave around one another.  On each visit, you can, therefore, choose between the 18 hole Amazon golf course with waterfalls, tomb and jungle wildlife, or the 18 hole Congo course that has you braving the swing bridge and taking aim amidst snakes, spiders and various other jungle mammals.


You don’t need to pre-book – it’s managed on a pay and play basis – but it’s well organised there with a social distancing queue set up if you arrive at a busy time.   We arrived at midday and were lucky enough to get straight through check-in and on the course, but there were queues when we were leaving around 2 pm.    Definitely a popular activity on a sunny day so time your visit well!


There’s a sanitising station at the beginning and end of your adventure where you collect and drop off the golf-clubs, along with a small snack shop area for drinks and lollies.


Parking is free and there’s an outdoor terrace platform overlooking the course for anyone not participating, or to chill with a drink afterward.


My golfing skills leave a lot to be desired, “crazy” golf definitely more accurate in my case, but whether for fun or playing a more competitively scored game with your friends you’re going to struggle to get a nicer setting than this.   Each hole provides a new challenge so there’s plenty of trials and tribulations to experience on the way round.


For sure, it’s a fun way to spend a couple of hours for kids or adults alike, and has so many animals and scenic displays to admire on the course, commencing with the giant gorilla that greets you on arrival.
