Great Dorset Steam Fair 2019 - 22nd to 26th August

The Great Dorset Steam Fair is a typically British event offering a unique blend of nostalgia and entertainment. Come and soak up the special festival atmosphere whether as a day visitor or taking in the full five days by camping on site. There is no other event like it anywhere in the world which is why over 200,000 visitors attend each year both from the UK and from all over the World!

The Great Dorset Steam Fair takes places this year from 22nd to 26th August at Tarrant Hinton, Blandford!

To help you get there from the Salisbury area we are running a dedicated service - the X20 - from Thursday 22nd to Monday 26th August.

The X20 will run from Salisbury Railway Station, through the city centre, via Coombe Bissett and Tarrant Hinton to the Great Dorset Steam Fair bus stop situated inside the event site. 

Please note: during the Steam Fair, the X20 will alter the normal 20 timetable and some services will depart earlier as a result. Connections to/from Weymouth on service X12 will NOT be available on these days due to unpredictable traffic conditions.

They will also be running a special route, the SF1 shuttle, which will run daily from Thursday 22nd to Monday 26th August from Blandford to the Steam Fair site. The first bus will leave Blandford at 0755 and will run hourly until 2325 (until 1825 on Monday). Return journeys from the Steam Fair will run from 0830 until 2400.
