Thursford Collection


The Thursford Museum is now closed and will reopen on Wednesday 8th Novemeber for the festive season. 

Travel back to an old-fashioned fairground with majestic engines and rides from the Victorian era.

Roll up, roll up one and all! Take a visit to the Thursford Collection and see a world of wonders. See the world’s largest collection of steam engines and organs, hear Robert Wolfe, one of the world’s leading theatre organists, play the mighty Wurlitzer at 12.30pm and 2pm daily, ride on fairground carousels and the gondola and watch silent movies. And don’t forget to stop for lunch in the Carousel tea bar and shop in the ‘Olde Worlde’ shopping village. There’s also a children’s play area to keep the little ones entertained!

Please note fairground rides are subject to availability and are charged extra. They are not included in the admission price.

Our Gondola is currently going through extensive restoration and as a result it may not be in operation on the day you are coming. Please call the office before travelling to avoid disappointment.
