“A real highlight of our family holiday”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Visited with my family whilst on holiday in Filey.
The fair collection was a real highlight of our time there. The Fairground rides and organs may be from a time another era but they were interesting and fun for us and our children.
It was so nice to be able to get hands on with some of the exhibits - winding the music through an organ and even cranking a junior galloping horses ride - whilst my kids were sat on. You can step behind some of the organs whilst they play and see the workings move - fascinating.
The exhibits are a real treasure and beautifully restored. A must see on your stay in the Scarborough and Filey area.

Thank Jon C

“Treasured memories revisited”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

Came about this attraction by chance or should I say luck. A small collection of fairground rides, wurlitzers and steam engines housed in a spacious warehouse. There were some classic cars thrown in for good measure and a young gentleman playing the wurlitzer with such enthusiasm and flair it was heartwarming to hope that the talent for creating such magic goes on. The staff are extremely helpful and what isn't written, they can help you explain to your grandchildren what you can't. If I lived in this area, it would be my second home as it brought back such wonderful memories of 45 years ago, visiting steam rallies with my family in Leeds. It is also a perfect venue for functions, christmas parties, weddings and reunions. OK it's not wham bam in your face, glamour and glitz, it's more hello- remember me your old friend.
