The Carousel

Amusement and Theme Parks Entertainment Venues

The Carousel is an Armitage-Herschell portable steam driven, hand-carved wooden carousel was constructed circa 1892 and is one of only 200 in operation around the world.

Featuring 36 Dare horses and two chariots, it was purchased by the Steampacket Place Development Board in 1996 and painstakingly restored. There is also a replica 1898 Gavioli Band organ in the pavilion.

The Carousel has become an ideal accessible meeting place for the community, and the owners take pride in providing a memorable experience for all ages and abilities.

This has been made possible with improved access to the pavilion, the welcome installation of a mobility lift and recharge point.

The mobility lift enables a wheelchair to go on the Carousel ride and was specially designed to respect and complement the history of the Carousel.

As well as being a Tourist Attraction and meeting place, The Carousel also offers a wide range of services including children’s birthday parties, wedding ceremonies and receptions, photo shoots and corporate functions.
