Vintage Fun for All the Family

Take a break from the action on the track and experience the thrill of the fair at our very own vintage funfair.

Located in the Riverbank area of the Chateau grounds, our spectacular vintage funfair has a range of traditional British rides that is sure to excite both children and adults alike. 

At our funfair, you can ride on the oldest travelling Ferris wheel in the UK. It was built in America in 1922 and then imported to England for prominent 1920s showman Pat Collins. It has been travelling around the country ever since as one of the most popular rides at the fair. 

Alongside this is a carousel – built in 1952, it features two centaurs alongside its classic galloping horses, which were commissioned to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s II’s ascension to the throne.

However, if it’s speed you’re after, then don’t miss the helter-skelter! One of the finest examples of original helter-skelters in the country, this classic funfair slide is fun for all the family.

All of the rides at the vintage funfair are free of charge, and are suitable for all ages – even if you’re a grown-up!*

Don’t forget to try your hand at the Honesberie Shooting School air gun sharpshooter experience too – will you be the best shot of the day? Please note that a small charge will apply for the sharpshooter experience.

*Please note that height restrictions may apply.
