Famed for its popular tourist attractions like the London Eye and the Sea Life Aquarium, Waterloo is one of the cultural centres of the capital.

The district is brimming with great things to do – and one of those things is going for a fun-filled bottomless brunch!

From karaoke brunches and drag brunches to rooftop brunches and brunches on a boat, Waterloo’s brunches are heaps of fun.

Oh, and did I mention they have bottomless afternoon teas, too?

If these sound as good to you as they do to me, then scroll down to discover the 18 best places to go for bottomless brunch in Waterloo!

Basically, if you love cheesy pop goodness, you’ll be in your element here!

Tickets start at £49 but can rise to £55 for certain events.

Each event promises something unique whether it’s drag queens and giveaways at the Pop Icons brunch or burlesque performers at the Moulin Rouge brunch.

The one thing that’s consistent at all their events is that you’ll get to enjoy one brunch dish and 90 sweet minutes of free-flowing bubbles, beer or cocktails.

Oh, and some seriously epic entertainment!

I think you can now see why Tonight Josephine is one of my favourite places to go for bottomless brunch in Waterloo.

Price: £28 per person

Drag Race fans gather around because I’ve found your new favourite bottomless brunch in Waterloo.

Nestled between Waterloo Bridge and the London Eye, Between the Bridges is a unique riverside venue that has one of the most fun bottomless brunches around!

Their brunch combines all the best things in life: daytime drinking, dancing, dining, and drag!

Between the Bridges’ Drag Race Brunch costs £28 per person and for that price, you get an hour of bottomless bubbly, drag anthems from their live DJs, and a performance from a star of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.

They’ll be bringing you games, prizes, and all sorts of debauchery to make your brunch a fun one.

Sadly, the ticket price doesn’t come with any food but it’s okay because you can buy any food from their amazing street food vendors.

Pornstar martinis are always worth the upgrade, in my opinion.

I’d probably upgrade my food, too, solely for the plant-based burger.

Marsha’s speciality is its burgers (which are the stuff of dreams) but you can order anything from their all-day menu to qualify for bottomless drinks.

Two of their best large plates are the chicken souvlaki with tzatziki and flatbread, and the black rice salad with butternut squash and cavolo nero.

Their small plates are equally as eclectic, ranging from buttermilk-fried chicken wings to cauliflower soup with pine nuts and truffle oil.

Yum!

Their brunch menu truly is the stuff of dreams and I know you’re going to love their food just as much as I do!

If you have a savoury tooth, order one of their starters.

From classics like eggs Benedict and smashed avocado on toast to ham hock terrine and quinoa salad, there are plenty of dishes for you to choose from!

Alternatively, if you have a big sweet tooth, you’ll love their lemon tart, chocolate ganache, and seasonal fruit crumble.

Or why not go all out and order both a starter and a dessert?

I’d say they’re worth it!

As for mains, I’d highly recommend the cauliflower steak but the pumpkin and sage ravioli is also super tasty.

Skylon is one of those great places that give you an amazing two hours to enjoy your bottomless drinks and you get to choose between Prosecco and Bordeaux.

Very few places offer red wine as a bottomless option so why not go for that to mix things up?!

Whatever you order, you’re sure to love it!

Even better yet, this bottomless brunch is available every single day of the week from 11 am to 4 pm.
