A working museum, Mechanical Memories offers a charming diversion from the mass of seafront paraphernalia in the area, paying homage to the automated entertainments of bygone times. The vintage slot machines date from the early 1900s until around 1960. You can buy old-fashioned pennies to play on the likes of fortune-tellers, horse racing games and one-armed bandits. Children can stamp their names onto aluminium strips (like dog tags), and laugh at the saucy What the Butler Saw machines.
