2018 - Leisuretime Allocated - 3 Days (AUD0045)

If you’re 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 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 in bygone years. 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. 2018 sees the show in its 50th year.

Beautiful Bournemouth, famous for its golden sand, sea views, tropical gardens, outdoor adventure and tons of festivals and events. So, if you’re a beach loving, water splashing, Victorian architecture, riviera seeking, show stopping kind of person or family, then Bournemouth is the place for you.
