Did think initially it was expensive to get in, however once inside soon realised it was value for money a wonderful collection of things from the past and all working, very clean inside and friendly - well worth the money.

This is a true hidden gem. Not a lot of people know about it. The most immense collection of beautiful, ornate organs. The rides are super and the volunteers are more than helpful. A must.

The host at our B&B in Scarborough recommended we visit and could not understand why we had not done so before, since we have been taking two small holiday breaks in Scarborough every year for some time now. What a revelation, since our expectations were not that high. We were very impressed with the wide range of exhibits, all of... More

Having read reviews of this place, we had high expectations. They were met and easily exceeded! Visiting with a ten year old and six year old, things started well with whoops of delight at the "hall of mirrors" in the entrance and just got better. Wonderfully friendly and helpful volunteers helped to make the whole experience more enjoyable, but the... More

Me and hubby loved the old vintage cars and fairground organs, and it was great when the organ player took a turn on one of the whirlitzers. Note- not open every day of the week so check time, sat nav... More

Visited the Scarborough Fair Collection today, what a delight....... The exhibits evoke memories of days gone, the Wurlitzers, Steam Organs, vintage vehicles and working fair ground rides. Everybody is catered for, the working carousel is a great attraction for kids and adults alike, I must admit the ride on the carousel brought back many happy memories and I've no doubt... More

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.
