Things to do at Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre review

Dingle’s fairground heritage trust is a charity that seeks to preserve historic fairground equipment and memorabilia. The centre is located near Milford in Devon and has 45,000 square foot of indoor things to see and do.

The trust was established in 1988 and now has a large collection of rides and fairground-related artefacts. They are hoping to open a new extension in 2021 with a new shop and cafe.

Rides at the centre include Edwards’ Dodgems, Shaws moon rocket and Edwards’ chariot racer. Plus Tuby’s gallopers, Brett’s ghost train and a series of children’s rides. They also have stalls, transport vehicles and wagons. Plus a few rides in-store that they hope to display in the future.

To ride on the rides you will need to purchase ride tokens, this is in addition to your entrance ticket. Some advence tickets also include ride tokens. The centre also has a penny arcade, some working fairground organs, a hall of mirrors and traditional fair games. The centre hosts special events.

Please note – Most places may still require you to pre-book online in advance. Some venues also still have certain areas closed for safety reasons. Please check their website and/or social media pages before visiting.
