Hull Fair, Hull, East Yorkshire

Dates for 2015 from 5pm Friday 9th October to midnight Saturday 17th October (except Sunday 11th). 
Hull Fair is an annual event which runs for one week in October. It has a long history and has grown over the years to be the largest travelling fair in Europe. It really is a sight to behold.
 
For any fans of traditional fairgrounds, this place is a must-do. The best time to visit with young families is in the early evening before it gets too busy. Hull Fair is superb in the dark with older children.

The route is split in to four parts, so it’s easy to do it in bits. It takes a couple of hours to do the whole lot.
