Carters Steam Fair has been on the road for 36 years since John and Anna Carter bought the Steam Gallopers,



a fairground ride that was extremely dilapidated and needed a lot of restoration and money to bring it up to scratch. Using their experience of promoting vintage car shows, steam rallies and collectors' bazaars, the Gallopers soon became an extra attraction and led to the acquisition of the Chair-o-Plane,



various side stalls and the Steam Yachts.

Since that time the enterprise has grown in size and is a family run vintage fair that mainly travels around London and the Home Counties. Although it is no longer purely a steam fair, the very sights, sounds and smells will probably evoke memories of your childhood and the feelings of excitement and anticipation when you saw the first posters announcing that the fair was coming to town.

The fairground attractions cater for young and old alike, with traditional rides like the helter skelter (the Lighthouse Slip) as well as the Wall of Death and the Rock 'n Roll Dodgems for the big ones and the Austin Cars and Hook a Duck for the little'uns. Make sure you don't miss the Steam Gallopers and the Chair-o-Plane, and of course you must spoil yourself with some candyfloss.





Until November you can catch up with Carters as they travel round Greater London, various destinations in Hertfordshire and Berkshire, and even as far west as Bath.
