Whole host of old style arcade machines, some I recognised from my childhood but more from my mum's time. Really interesting to see how things have changed.

Somewhere I always visit in Brid. I remember when some of the machines were in their original locations! I can still score 20 out of 20 on the guns!

We really loved visiting here we had a lovely time playing the old games. Brought back many memories for my partner. Some of the machines were around when he was a child. Such a shame it has now closed down :(
