- The Trocadero first started life as a tennis court in the 18th century. Since then, it can safely be said that things have changed somewhat. Today, it is London's most-visited entertainment complex, filled with shops, restaurants and high-tech attractions, including Funland - the world's leading indoor entertainment centre, incorporating rides, simulators, high-tech video games, dodgems and a ten-pin bowling alley. Other mass magnets are the Pepsi Max Drop Ride, Madame Tussaud's Rock Circus, an Internet Exchange and the UGC blockbuster cinema and Metro arthouse screen on Rupert Street. This mixed bag of shops, cafés, restaurants and entertainment is geared largely towards tourists and is a huge hit with British visitors from outside London, families, and above all hungry teen hordes. Shops include high street hotspots like the Body Shop and HMV, and fast food abounds with the likes of Ed's Easy Diner, Planet Hollywood and the Rainforest Café.
