A Wheel and Away

Novelty Automation

London, UK


This is a fun and quirky treasure trove of unique arcade games, mostly designed and built by the owner.  Leave your computer games behind and take a step back in time to when arcade games ruled!

You can try out money laundering, take a ride on a magic carpet or test your nerve against the bulldog as he dribbles all over you.  Sound tempting?

Novelty Automation is great fun for adults and children alike.

The games require tokens to play, each of which costs £1.  Only five minutes from Holborn tube station, this is definitely worth a visit.  We loved it!

General accessibility information

The building is old therefore the doorway is quite narrow, being 650mm wide.  Once inside, everything is on a level, although the nature of the building means there is not a lot of room.  Most of the games are suitable for wheelchair users.

Disabled toilet facilities

This is essentially a shop sized attraction so no toilet facilities are available.
