About the Woolpit Steam Rally

Located about midway between Cambridge and the East Coast of Suffolk is the little town of Woolpit, where the mysterious Legend of The Green Children was born in the 12th century. And just a couple miles down the road off the A14 is the Warren Farm, where the Woolpit Steam Rally is an annual event.

Single people, couples, and families gather each year to see the exhibits and participate in an array of fun activities. There are live demonstrations of steam engines and tractors, as well as many vintage cars and motorbikes to see.

Aside from the exhibits of automobiles and steam-powered engines is the Woolpit Steam Rally Vintage Fairground that will take you back to the days before smartphones and YouTube where life seemed slower and less stressful. And if you are looking for the attractions of today, the Woolpit Steam Rally Modern Fairground will fill that need.

Woolpit Steam

The organizers of the Woolpit Steam Rally endeavour to stage a smaller friendly event but with unusual exhibits not found at larger shows with bigger budgets to play with. The first rally was held in 1987 at Grange Farm in Woolpit by a committee whose members had previously participated in other events such as the Suffolk 'Cotton Exhibition'. In 1996 the event was moved to its current location, the Warren Farm. Local businesses, volunteers, and others donate their time to make it possible for the Woolpit Steam Rally to raise significant donations for many local charities.

Entry To The Rally

The Show opens at 9:00 a.m. on both days. Adults can enter for £6 on Saturday and £7 on Sunday. Children’s admission is £2 each day, and the fun lasts until 5:00 p.m.

Somewhere to Stay in Suffolk

Are you looking to make it an overnight event? If so, there are several great places to stay like the Bull Inn, located in Woolpit and just a few minutes away from the Warren Farm. The Bull Inn features a pub, restaurant, B&B, and a large beer garden. Other great choices are the Travelodge Ipswich Stowmarket for budget-minded steam enthusiasts or the Haughley House, a medieval manor house B&B for those looking to go a bit more upscale.

Getting To Warren Farm

Motorists will have an easy time finding the Warren Farm. Those heading eastbound from Bury St. Edmunds will exit A14 at junction 47A while westbound drivers coming from Ipswich will exit at junction 49 and take Tot Hill to Stowmarket Road.

Other Things To Do Around Stowmarket

Visitors will have to ask the local people about the Legend of the Green Children but there are other attractions near Woolpit that are well worth visiting. The Museum of East Anglian Life located in nearby Stowmarket will be of interest to those who want to know about the area’s agricultural history. If you have small children the Mid Suffolk Leisure Centre, about 7 miles from Woolpit, is the perfect place for the little ones to expend some of that pent-up energy.
