Grainger Games. A lost video game shop brand

This is the Stretford Mall location.


Grainger Games in Stretford Mall

The company was founded in 1996 and ceased operations on the 28th March 2018.

You won't find a PS5 there, but there's still a rack of UFC3 games for the XBOX ONE and PS4 in there.

As a brand with shops in the North of England and Scotland I only became a regular shopper there when I moved to Stockport in 2016.

Louis Tussauds House of Wax in Great Yarmouth

A look back at Louis Tussauds House of Wax in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk.

In all of my travels around the UK one of my biggest regrets is that I never visited Louis Tussauds House of Wax in Great Yarmouth.

The closest I ever got to going inside

It was the World's Worst Wax Museum!

Look at those star attractions. Bear in mind this photo was taken in June 2011

We've been to the Norfolk seaside resort a number of times over the years but either ran out of time to go in, or found it to be closed or out-of-season.

Sadly Louis Tussauds House of Wax permanently closed in 2012.

Did you ever visit? I'd love to know if it really was as bad as people say.
