If you’re anywhere near Blandford Forum at the time, you won’t miss it. Everyone is off to the fair, the leading show of its kind in the whole world. Nowhere else can you find such fine examples of rural life as it was once lived.
If you’re a steam buff, you’ll be amazed by the number and splendour of the steam engines that attend the fair, including railway engines.
There’s the most impressive selection of real ale you’ll find anywhere and there’s even a music festival. And there are countless stalls selling ‘everything and anything’.
The Great Dorset Steam Fair is huge, a country fair to beat them all. It’s a classic British occasion providing nostalgia and entertainment for all ages.
Plumber Manor Hotel is near the Dorset Steam Fair and both are of great historic significance. So if you’re thinking of taking a break in Dorset around the beginning of September, come and stay with us and spend a day at the steam fair. You’ll have a wonderful time.
