22nd - 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 our sister company, Damory, are running a dedicated service from Salisbury - the X20 - between Thursday 22nd and 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. 

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.

We regret that ENCTS Concessionary Passes are NOT valid on the SF1 shuttle.

morebus customers can catch the X8 from Poole to Blandford or the X3 from Bournemouth to Salisbury to pick up these services and head down to the ever-popular Steam Fair! What's more; if you purchase a Network/Zone ABC dayrider, you can take advantage of all day travel and your ticket can be used on the shuttle buses.
