Situated in the South Downs National Park, Hollycombe is home to Britain's largest collection of working steam

Hollycombe is one of Britain’s largest collections of steam offering visitors a nostalgic look at how the Victorians and Edwardians used steam as an instrument of work and play, and featuring a number of popular fairground sideshows of the period.

With steam-driven rides such as the Golden Gallopers, Steam Swingboats and Steam Chair-o-Planes, a trip to Hollycombe offers visitors both nostalgia and a frisson of excitement!

After enjoying the rides visitors can sit back and relax in the Bioscope – a pre-cursor to the modern cinema, typical of the travelling shows which first brought film to the public – or reflect on themselves with a walk through an original Hall of Mirrors.

The fun doesn’t end there as we invite you to sit back and enjoy a ride on a steam-train on one of our railways. The Narrow-Gauge Railway takes in breath-taking views over the South Downs, or ride our Garden Railway that is nestled between the Fairground and the Woodland Gardens.
