The Scarborough Fair Collection and Vintage Transport Museum hosts a magnificent working collection of Vintage Cars, Steam Engines, Vintage Fairground Rides and Mechanical Organs topped off with a 'Mighty' Wurlitzer Organ in our spacious ballroom. Set in the scenic grounds of the Flower of May Holiday Park on the coast road between Scarborough and Filey.

It all started as a hobby for Scarborough Fair Collection owner Graham Atkinson, and it has developed into one of the largest and finest collections of Steam Engines, Mechanical Organs, Vintage Fairground Rides and Vintage Cars in the country!

We are one of the largest indoor attractions in the local area, come along and enjoy a journey down memory lane! 

We are home to two mighty Wurlitzer organs which form the centrepiece of the museum ballroom and multiple showman's steam engines including the famous 'iron maiden'.

You can also sit back and relax with a cup of tea and slice of cake from our cafe, while listening to the old time melodies of the Decap, Gavioli, Mortier Roth and Marenghi organs.

Lunch & Snacks

Here at the museum we have a well stocked tea bar providing, sandwiches, cakes and lavish afternoon teas. Sit in the ballroom and be entertained by the vintage dance organs while you eat.
