THE ORIGINAL END OF THE PIER AMUSEMENTS
PETER WILLIAMSON’S AMAZING VINTAGE AMUSEMENT PENNY MACHINES
Peter Williamson has been collecting and restoring these amazing vintage amusement machines since 1988 and has amassed one of the largest operating collections in the country.
- Play the simple allwin (flick ball) machines
- Try the cheeky “what the Butler Saw”
- Enjoy the timeless one-armed bandits
- Laugh along with the “Laughing Sailor”
- Marvel at the “Working Models”
All these machines are available to play at one of our two locations Wroxham Miniature Worlds and Great Yarmouth Merrivale Model Village where you can purchase “old penny tokens” to take you back to those nostalgic times of yesteryear.
We wish to buy all and any early mechanical amusement machines to add to the Old Penny Arcade collection to restore and bring out for the public to play again.
Whether you’ve got one machine or a barn-full, get in touch.

MERRIVALE MODEL VILLAGE
Merrivale is a typical reflection of the English countryside in miniature, just over one acre in extent. It has its own busy town centre, as well as its perfectly kept village inn, farm, travelling fair, sports stadium, zoo, holiday park, country club, castle and cottages set against an attractive scenic background.
WROXHAM MINIATURE WORLDS
WMW is the largest indoor modelling attraction in the UK stretching over 10,000 square feet with some of the largest model railways in the world on permanent public display. The attraction is made up of many zones including model railways, slot car displays, and a whole city made from LegoTM bricks.
