Games Arcades and Machines

Finding old arcade cabinets and old-school arcades in the UK is a fairly regular topic in the GameCentral Inbox. The problem is that the answers get lost there. Hopefully this page can collect them together.

List the location of any gaming arcades or old machines you have found here.

Please list in the following format, if you have sufficient information.

– Name of premises/business

– Address or general location

– Specific machines available, or if too many please estimate their number

If a previously posted location is no longer around please post a comment.
