Great to see this magnificent collection of machines. All of which are still working. You are able to change money for old currency to play on these.

You have to buy old pennies to play the machines. If you are fortunate enough to win, you CANNOT exchange the old pennies for cash. Old and tired.

Lovely place to do with the young ones. The machines are surprisingly addictive and the music gets stuck in your head.

Many old machines that we use to play, mainly at the visiting fairground, when we were children. You can purchase the old money used by these machines at the arcade, but you cannot cash in the old money when you are finished.

Try the hockey, we could not play through laughing so much. It was also educational to talk after about what the Victorians done for entertainment. How they survived without internet and mobiles ....

This is a lovely old fashioned attraction for the adults in Wookey Hole while the children are enjoying themselves elsewhere. You can purchase old pennies to use in the arcade and have lots of fun. the machines are all old style and very attractive. I would highly recommend a visit here for the adults but do not expect to make... More
