The amusement parks and funfairs of the South East coast.

This video features Dreamland at Margate, when it was known as 'Bembom Brothers White Knuckle Theme Park'. See rides like the Water Chute, Looping Star, Heatwave, Mary Rose and Britain's largest Big Wheel at the nearest and biggest seaside amusement park to London.

Visit Folkestone's Rotunda Amusement Park at the height of its popularity, with rides like the Super 8 Bahn roller coaster (now the Cannonball Express at Pleasurewood Hills), Gallopers and Log Flume.

Also featured is:

  • Irvin Leisure's August Fair at Margate
  • Wm. Davis's fair at Hastings; and
  • Harris Brothers Vintage Fair at Horsted Keynes.

No commentary, just the sights and sounds of the best amusement parks and fairs in the South East.

Reviews

I recently purchased South East Tour 1993 on DVD. I like the fact that there is no commentary. I thought the idea of watching the whole duration time of some rides was absolutely brilliant. The section that I paid special interest in was Dreamland in Margate. This was the whole reason why I purchased this DVD. I am building a 1/76th scale OO-gauge model railway layout and Dreamland will be part of my layout. I chose to model the park mainly on the Bembom Brothers' era, which I can remember in 1992 at the age of 4. So therefore me having this DVD and Bembom Brothers at Margate is really good. The only down side to the DVD is at the beginning, on the main menu, is that there is no scene selection icon. Apart from this, the whole DVD was fantastic. I personally give 9 out of 10 maybe 10 out of 10.
