Thursford evolved from George Cushing's personal collection of antiques and knick-knacks into a working museum. The site boasts a large collection of mechanical organs, Europe's fourth largest Wurlitzer with 1,339 pipes, and a 19th-century gondola merry-go-round, among other quirky antiques. If in the area during the Christmas season, attend the Christmas Spectacular, the largest and most popular Christmas show in Britain. Make sure you book ahead due to the show's popularity. Behind-the-scenes tours run daily, giving insight into the famous show by showing the costume stores, "Fantasy Land," and the engine yard. Although public transport options exist, driving to the museum makes for a less complicated journey.
