This place is fascinating! There's something for everyone. I particularly loved all of the old fashioned fairground rides, and got to have a go on a lovely old carousel, which was lovely. The staff are incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. It was just a lovely thing to go and do!

Was in awe of the collection they had there. Received a ticket to enable us to take a free ride whilst there but most of the rides were unmanned or out of order. Still worth a visit though. Nice café with polite staff

Wow, the description online doesn't prepare you for the scale of the collection. Parking is right outside, and level access throughout. You enter passed a line of funny mirrors, then you go through the doors into the collection proper there is a small cafe selling the usual fayre, we managed to resist the cakes etc and just had a coffee...

This place is a retro experience for the fun and delight of fairgrounds of the past. The attractions have been magnificently displayed to visitors and riding on 1950s style attractions take you back to a time when you could see these when travelling fairs visited your town 60 years ago. The extra attraction of seeing and listening to TWO Wurlitzer... More

What a lovely place to visit. The Collection isn't widely advertised and we really just happened upon it and we're glad we did. We spent almost 4 hours walking around looking at the various vehicles, models and pipe organs, riding the fairground rides, and playing in the penny arcade. The staff can't do enough for you. I imagine they are... More

The collection combines fairground rides and amusements with cars, motorcycles and household appliances from past decades. There was so much to recapture schemes of our childhood and teenage years: we were constantly saying to each other: "do you remember this?" Or "my grandparents had one of these!" Far exceeded my expectations. The exhibits were all in stunningly good condition.
