This attraction is well worth a visit, with lot's of different things to see. From fairground rides to go on, to vintage cars and steam engines to view. You can also save some money by using a discount voucher, out of the back of a attractions book.

Staff were really helpful and friendly and opened whatever ride my son wanted to go on. Loved looking at the organs and listening to them play. Great Little trip especially on a rainy day.

We did not realise there was so much to see. We always thought it was a small place so were very surprised to find all the rides and engines. Lovely venue. It is situated being the Flower of May leisure complex so plenty to do and is open to all.
