I'll be the old geezer......
You'll stand out like a sore thumb.
The Bryans museum is well worth a peek, but phone to check it's open before going.

I thought you had to pay for full entry into Drayton Manor Theme Park to access the museum. Their website makes no mention of the Bryan's museum - is it still there?

You do, unless you can speak to one of the bosses and get special dispensation.

Twenty-eight quid if you book in advance, otherwise £39.

As my mum's old Aunt Elsie used to say, "It's a dear do".

All these vintage arcades in pay family centres are not geared towards collectors, but a hopeful new audience who may find them fun......shame and one of the reasons I have never been to any of them, but they are trying to make money. :!?!:

I think you can use Tesco vouchers at Drayton Manor, so it could be a sort of freebie...
(Thats a UK supermarket loyalty scheme, for any US readers!)

No, but this one is catalogue number 114, rather a good looking example.

Well, progress with my 1/2d Payramid; great news; as pennymachines suggested, the original 1/2d WAS behind some plastic padding (pooh!) filler on the top casing, so I am somewhat chuffed.. Thanks Guv'..

Best to all from sunny Oxfordshire..
