In Ramsgate I tried to find the Pinball museum but on asking the Tourist Information Centre found that this had moved to Margate. It is worth a look around to see all the old pinball machines.

We weren't sure what to expect as we know nothing about Pinball machines but we very much enjoyed our visit. The games were fun and the young man working there was very polite and helpful and really knew his stuff. I think they are moving to dreamland in Margate and I will definitely visit when we are in the area... More

I could spend hours in here, fantastic place, must go again soon. Takes you back to when you were young and these sort of machines were all the rage.

We took our teenage boys here and I'm not sure who enjoyed it the most! We had fun playing real machines from the 70s (including the real machine from Happy Days played by The Fonz!) including a few unusual games such as a quirky basketball and a golf game. The machines were well maintained and the chap who runs it... More

This hidden gem allows you to play on a variety of old pinball tables and arcade games. It really is fun for all the family. The machines are lovingly restored and maintained by the owner and the 50s juke box adds atmosphere. Just be warned that this lovely working museum has no other facilities.

Funny little place but old school machines and worth a couple of hours playing the tables. Lovely older machines that are Victorian and always uses the old coin that you get upon entry.

Having seen this on a visit Thanet website two of us decided to pay a visit. Firstly it's not the easiest place to find and parking could be tricky on a busy weekend. Secondly from the outside it does look a little uninviting with metal grills the main feature of the display front. However once you enter you are taken... More
