About the Cheshire Steam Fair
About 5 miles southwest of Warrington and directly off M56 lies the tiny village of Daresbury, the birthplace of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland author Lewis Carroll. It also is the site of the Cheshire Steam Fair.
Steam enthusiasts always enjoy the steam engines, stationary engines, vintage cars, motorcycles, and miniatures that are featured every year at the Cheshire Steam Fair.
The best part is that you don’t need to be a steam enthusiast to enjoy the Fair, but once you enter the gates, we expect that you will catch 'steam fever' for the day or weekend. In years past, other great events on the slate have included, mechanical fairground organs and evening entertainment for campers and exhibitors,

Other Things To Do Around Cheshire
There are other exciting places to see around Daresbury and Warrington, and one of those is the Norton Priory, the most excavated monastic site in Europe. Boasting the ruins of an Abbey, 12th-century undercroft, and an 18th-century Walled Garden. The Warrington Museum and Art Gallery is another place to connect with local history.
Parking is free. Dogs are welcome (but keep them on a leash and take care of any 'deposit' they may leave). If you don’t have the courage to enter the Children’s corner to participate in a bungee trampoline contest, you can always build up your bravado by visiting the licensed bar.
