Come and visit our new addition at the Salthouse Harbour Hotel. "The Oracle" is the latest crazy and bizarre, wooden coin-operated, arcade machine created by engineer and cartoonist Tim Hunkins.

Built in 1981, you first have to ask The Oracle a question. Once the coin is inserted she stares into your eyes, whirls a disk and then lowers it on your hand. Sand is then poured onto your hand and the answer to your question is written in the sand on your palm!

The Oracle has also been housed at the Cabaret Mechanical Theatre in Covent Garden for many years, and Yarmouth Beach's Punch & Judy Show before that.

Test your skills on more wild & whacky Tim Hunkins' machines in the 'Under The Pier Show' at the iconic Southwold Pier, our sister property on the Suffolk Coast.
