With the longest indoor track in the UK, Capital Karts Go Karting London is a thrilling new addition to the London go karting scene! Race our brand new karts at speeds of up to 45mph on a perfect blend of fast straights, flowing corners and tight hairpins which ensures lap times of well over a minute around our giant 1050m circuit.

Ideally located with easy access from both the heart of the city and the M25, Capital Karts is an essential new edition to the London entertainment scene.

Visited Capital Karts with friends on a Sunday evening with our sons, we found the welcome very professional, and the briefing very thorough. Once the boys were on the track, the staff were very attentive and professional and kept a close eye on all the kids. The karts are new and appear well maintained and most importantly the boys came... More

I visited capital karts on the 23rd January 2017 with a group of friends and it was great fun we all liked it. The karts there were all equal so there was no advantage in someone going faster than the other. The marshals there were really helpful and when we did have a problem with something they sorted it out... More

This was the best karting I have found in england. The karts are fast, the track is great. Luke and the staff are always willing to help. No yellow lights, if there is a yellow light it is controlled to the area where the accident is, which is great. Thank you again to Luke and staff I will deffinatley be... More

We opted for the grand prix session. 15min qualifying session followed by a 35min grand prix. Unfortunately they were running behind by an hour so we didn't start until 8.30pm so ended up being quite a late one. It did seem a tad disorganised and the staff could have been more cheerful and welcoming. Disappointed that our qualifying only lasted... More

Went there for the first time, it was OK. We enjoyed it however we feel Some of the member of staff did not give us full attention as paying customers. Secondly, I feel the price is a bit too much for 20 mins session. Other then that ,it's not bad.

Really enjoyed the mid-week Mini Grand Prix race. The karts handled well, felt more stable than others we've used in the past. The track is long but is great fun to race around with its mix of challenging corners! On that subject it is great if you want to improve your cornering. We found the staff to be very welcoming...
