There are lots of classic fairground rides and attractions such as Austin cars, a carousel and helter skelter, as well as plenty of stalls selling different types of food and other items.

After getting you’re fill of the rides you can then check out The Lands, which are filled with pop-up structures, artworks, films and exhibitions.

Go on a seaside holiday by the river, visit the countryside around and about Queen Elizabeth Hall, visit an area devoted to power and production near the Hayward Gallery, or look at portraits of modern Britain in the new High Street alongside Royal Festival Hall.
