  • I very interesting variety of exhibits from a full size Carousel to slot machines where you can play with old penny coins purchased from the reception. There is a large hall housing a Wurlitzer Organ which was being played when we were there. Two more halls hold most of the remaining exhibits. There are old cars and motorcycles, working fairground rides and a huge array of fair ground organs plus traction engines. It is privately owned as are the exhibits which are individually owned. A bright clean place Ron by very friendly people and a very reaonably priced cafe. Not very well signposted but approached up the Flower of May Caravan Site Entrance. Excellent.
  • Good for a rainy day. Some excellent exhibits and classic fun for the kids. Penny slot machines good fun too. Good for a couple of hours of fun.
  • Great day out when the weather is not so good. Lovely rides and lots of old cars to admire. A little bit expensive for family of 5 unfortunately.
  • A hidden gem visited with my elderly parents the staff couldn't do enough for us. Will definitely visit again 👍👍
  • One of the best places I have been too
