Summer Arcade is a great place for both the summer and winter months. Many different activities including slot machines, crazy golf and children’s indoor play centre. The arcade itself looks quite worn and has seen better days. They offer prize tickets which you can redeem...More

We always take lots of 2ps for our children to use as they must love those machines! Also have tickets that are worth a penny each and can be redeemed in the adjacent gift shop. Worth a rainy day visit especially with children.

Very fun all the machines, however having to pay 20p for the toilet is disappointing (I went to the cafe next doors toilet). We had some issues with 2p machines but staff were more than willing to help!
