Carter’s Steam Fair

You know that fair in Paddington 2…? The one with the traditional rides, not like the garish, modern funfairs you see today…?! Well, they’re touring again this year and we cannot wait to go! Carter’s Steam Fair gives you the chance to experience vintage rides and games, from the 1890s to the 1960s, that have been lovingly restored.

I love the fact that everything on the fair, including the rides, vehicles and caravans is painted by hand in traditional designs to show how they would have originally looked. 

Check out the image below to see if they’re visiting a park near you… the fairs are free to attend – you just purchase tokens to go on the ride so definitely pop along for a look (and maybe some candy floss!), if nothing else!

If you do decide to book your ride tokens online, you’ll get some free extra rides – the bigger the bundle of ride tokens you buy, the more you receive! We’ll be popping along to Maldon on Saturday 1st June so do say ‘hello’ if you’re there.
