Sega World Tamworth was an indoor Sega World arcade located in Strykers Pleasure Bowl, River Drive, Tamworth, Staffordshire, United Kingdom. Its exact opening and final closing dates are not known, however it must have been open in 1996 because a Sega Rally contest was held there.[1]

The arcade opened occupying the upper floor of the bowling centre. One night a week, machines would be set to freeplay and an entry fee was charged at the door. Later the arcade moved downstairs into a smaller area, and shortly afterwards renamed to Sega Park. It was one of the many Sega Park venues sold on to Leisure Exchange in 2000.

In 2001, Namco Amusement Europe Ltd. purchased Strykers Bowl. With this, the Sega Park arcade was bought out as well and rebranded under the company's in-house brand Namco Station. The venue remains as such to this day.
