Then it’s down to the sea front for arcades or mini golf – what else? At this time of year, we recommend the indoor Windmill adventure golf on Marine Parade (NR30 3AD), which is notorious for it’s surprising decor and spooky set-ups.
There’s plenty of arcades to choose from but the huge Wellington Pier (NR30 3JF) has amazing games and a skittles alley – wellingtonpier.co.uk
