This is fun, the fair and the surrounding area is very nice to visite. Just across the street you have a pub, it's from the Witherspoonconcern. So it's good.

There is free kerbside parking all around.If it's busy, you may have to circle a bit, until someone moves. Cars often get tickets for parking in restricted bays. The Pleasure Park has on site reasonable charges.
