Golf Fang is strictly 18+ and Junkyard Golf Club allows under 18s on Sunday to Thursday before 6pm, & must have an over 18 present with them.
Visit The Quirky Quarter
Duke Street’s Quirky Quarter is home to a medley of interactive experiences and brain-stimulating workouts, puzzling challenges and oddball photo opportunities.
