    Hello all!

    I am childishly attached to carnival games (crane machines, skee ball, ticket games etc.) and I live in a country where even regular arcades are few and far between.

    I plan a short three day trip this spring to pretty much anywhere in Great Britain and would love it if there are small arcades with a good variety of carnival games. I prefer midsized or smaller cities (or for that matter a small part of a bigger city).

    Is there anything that fits my criteria?

    • Not a huge inner city area
    • Easy to find from the airport (shuttle bus, train or something of the sort), preferably max 1,5 hours travel
    • One or several arcades with carnival games and arcade games

    Thanks in advance!

    Your best bet is a coastal town with a pier like Blackpool or Brighton

    Blackpool was a plan for the summer, until I found out they no longer have an airport...

    Does anyone have more information about Brighton?

    Brighton is fine. Honestly.. I'd just come to London as I'm pretty sure they have all of that and more here. There used to be a Segaworld in the Trucadero, for example, but not sure if it's still there.

    I don't like the buzz of a big city. But if there is both an affordable hotel and an arcade far out in the suburbs...
