A super Centre that shows computing history as well as a lot of interactive exhibits. Everything from early PC's from the 70's through to the childhood PC's that many of us middle aged folks used when we were kids. My kids (14 and 10) really enjoyed it and can't wait to go back

A great trip back in history for me having grown up with ZX81s and BBC Bs - a day out retro gaming for my 13 year old daughter who had not seen floppy drives or tape players before!

We feel bad now for slightly mocking their 'retro' website...because this place is amazing, a real 'hidden gem' (watch out for the brown sign pointing into the industrial estate, the centre is tucked away right at the back).

This unassuming building is a treasure trove of computing history! Best of all many of the older computers and consoles can still be interacted with, you can play original Pong or Space Invaders...

It's a feast of nostalgia for older visitors, but all ages seemed very engaged. Very highly recommended to anyone with an interest in computing or technology.

What an amazing collection of computing hardware!
For a nostalgic 80s computer geek like me this was just superb. The fact that so many exhibits from that era are working is incredible!

There are loads of playable computers and consoles, older mainframe hardware, obscure business and personal computers and even programming guides for the BBC micro's in the schoolroom.

Just one of the many notable machines was the antiquated tape storage computer that was used to run one of the London underground lines from the 80s until.... 2021!!! Glad to see they finally upgraded it! I wonder how many of the other lines are still using them....

If you are a movie buff they have an Imsai 8080 as seen in Wargames, and spot the GRiD laptop that is a very similar model to the one used to control the sentry guns in the Director's Edition of Aliens!

I was grinning like a kid in a candy store from the moment I walked in.
Brilliant!

This place brought back memories of the computers and printers we used to use quite a few years ago!

Well, this was fun! In a mundane looking industrial estate down the back end of a road there are dozens of computers and games consoles from years gone by - with loads to play on, or program to your heart's content. A great trip for oldies looking at things from their youth, and youngsters who can't believe how bad computers were in the past!
All presented well, with friendly helpers. A really good couple of hours for young and old.

We enjoyed spending a Sunday afternoon at the Centre for computing. It was really interesting to learn about the history of computing and I especially liked the showcasing of females in computing and programming throughout history. Our kids loved playing on the video games and machines too! The location is a bit obscure in an industrial estate and we drove past the entrance twice before finding it!

Inside an unassuming building hidden away in an industrial estate is a mind-boggling array of fascinating technology from through the ages. The information boards are really well done, interesting without being overwhelming and the layou and theming of the centre is well done. The most impressive thing is quite how many of the exhibits are usable, eye-opening for youngsters and a grean nostalgia trip for those of us of a certain age! The staff are happy to talk and knowledgable about the machines. All in all a really good and highly recommended day out!

Cheaper tickets at the place. They have to offer trip advisor tickets but they aren’t the best deal. Venue is great, lots to see, fascinating.
