Visited this fair collection on Sunday when the rain was coming down in sheets. Inside some of the members were busy mopping up flood damage but this did not spoil any of the enjoyment of the day. The vintage cars and motorcycles, the traction engines and the many different organs all taking a turn at playing songs and bringing back... More

What a collection of great Wurlitzer's, fair ground organs and fair ground rides. We arrived just before lunch and in fact had lunch in the on site cafe watching two great young men play the Wurlitzer organs. In between recitals (played perfectly) the fair ground organs one by one played, after a lovely lunch we had a go on the... More

Well - a great day was had by all. Sheila and I spent four hours here today. The first two were looking at the exhibits, riding the fairground rides and having lunch. Then this afternoon we were treated to a concert by Mike Lester demonstrating the 'Mighty Wurlitzer'. Our dog, a whippet, also had a good day. Lazing in the... More

What can I say? If you are staying on the east coast located between Filey and Cayton Bay lies this gem within the Flower if May caravan park. Its a great day out for kids but in particular Dads! The machinery on show us 2nd to none. Really really enjoyed it as did our grandson

A wonderful selection of traditional fairground rides (working), wurlitzers and vintage vehicles, all indoors, so ideal for wet weather. Very reasonably priced cafe, although a limited menu.

Found this venue searching for wet weather activities with children (ages 6 & 3). Reasonably prices with very welcoming staff. The rides were good with smaller rides for youngsters, which are free. Lots to see and hear and the coffee and scones were great. I can thoroughly recommend this venue whatever the weather.

I only found about this place by accident but I am glad that I did. It has a fantastic collection of restored historical fairground rides. There are also a number of cars and bikes on display as well as fairground and Wurlitzer organs. For the dancers there is a dance floor and someone playing a Wurlitzer too (quite a few... More

Second time of visiting and this time I took my grand-daughter who would have happily spent the whole day going on the rides. A time when fairgrounds were fun places and music was played on orchestral machines using punch cards - FANTASTIC.
