About the Maidstone Vintage Toy Fair

Maidstone Vintage Toy Fair is held on the west bank of the River Medway in central Maidstone in the historical county of Kent. Maidstone is a few miles south of the section of the M20 that runs between Aylesford and Hollingbourne.

The vintage toy fair has plenty on offer, including Scale Electric Trains, Models, Die-Cast Cars, Toys, Dolls and Teddy Bears. Stalls and tables display their goods in the large main hall.

The vintage toy fair is held around five times per year at the Lockmeadow Complex in Maidstone and is by far the largest and most popular of its kind in Kent. You can expect to find a great selection of collectables from years gone by. Be on the lookout for Model Train and Model Engineering bargains.
