Great Dorset Steam Fair, Tarrant Hinton, England
23rd - 27th August
If you are looking for an excellent fun and action packed day out for all the family, you'll love the Great Dorset Steam Fair. Traditionally this English fair is held at the village of Tarrant Hinton, near Blandford Forum in the heart of the beautiful Dorset countryside. From small beginnings this annual event has become one of the favoured places for those interested in how people lived, worked and played in bygone years and it is now widely recognised as "THE" National Heritage Show as well as being regarded as the leading show of its type in the World.
The spectacle covers an enormous showground, at over 600 acres being one of Europe's largest outdoor event locations. If its heritage related, you'll find it at the Great Dorset Steam Fair. Each year we assemble probably the largest collection of steam and vintage equipment to be seen anywhere in the World and take visitors on a giant trip of nostalgia into the days of yesteryear. Everything that was great in British engineering can be seen, it really is a look back at our wonderful heritage when Great Britain was workshop to the world. Overall there are 200 working steam engines at the show with around 2,000 other working exhibits.
