Dingles captures the magic of the traditional fairground with a collection of vintage rides, working exhibits and stunning artwork.

Dingles' waltzers

All the fun of the fair is here: dodgems, ghost trains, chariot racers, gallopers and the rodeo switchback, though young children might prefer the gentler option of the roundabout or Happy Caterpillar. There is also a 1950s Bingo stall and an array of classic fairground games such as Beat the Clock, Plate Smasher, Hook a Duck or the Coconut shy.
