Welcome Arcadians!

Arcade Archive is ready to take you back in time to the Golden Age of the arcades.

With more than 40 lovingly restored cabinets (and counting) from across the world set to free-play for you to enjoy, revisit the earliest days of the arcades with the legendary Pong, Space Invaders and Asteroids Deluxe, 3D vector graphic icons including Star Wars and Battlezone, Nintendo’s unreleased Sky Skipper and Stern’s prototype Rescue. Can you set a high score on Capcom’s crushingly hard Ghost ‘n Goblins, Taito’s deceptively cutesy Puzzle Bobble or Sega’s sun-kissed OutRun?

Arcade Archive is curated by gaming historian Alex Crowley. It aims to capture the essence of what made visiting the arcade such a special era of gaming while entertaining and educating gamers of all ages.

As seen on national BBC News, BBC Points West and in Retro Gamer magazine!

Arcade Archive is located on the ground floor of the mill. There is a very slight step into the main door, and inside there is a small ramp through a doorway separating the two halves of the exhibit that is 80cm wide.
