Carlisle Toy Fair is Cumbria’s largest toy fair with 60 to 70 stalls and over 100 tables, loaded with items of interest to traders and collectors from across Scotland, the Borders, North East England, Cumbria and Lancashire .

 Held twice-yearly Carlisle toy fair has become a popular event for collectors. Come along to buy, swap and sell old and new models, including model railways, diecast vehicles, kits, soldiers and other figures, cabinets and much, much more. (Subject to stallholders’ stock on the  day).

 Whatever your model collecting passion, whatever your age –or simply whatever floats your boat, you can be sure to find something at the Shepherds Inn which will make your day!


If railways are your passion, then most gauges are catered for including ‘H’ (garden), ‘O’,  ‘OO’, ‘N’, and Z from famous names such as Bing, Bassett Lowke, Marklin, Graham  Farish,  Hornby,  Exley,  Wrenn, Triang, Bachmann, ACE, Heljan, and so much more.

Old Toys / models:

If older tin plate or diecast is your forte, then the Carlisle Toy Fair can offer a host of traditional marques to satisfy most model collectors’ needs, old or young. Well loved names such as Benbros, Triang, Morestone, Dinky, Airfix, Sutcliffe, Marklin, Lesney, Chad Valley, Marx, Victory, Britains - to name but a few.

 Modern Toys / models:

 Modern toy/model manufacturers bring a degree of detail and sophistication that once upon a time could only be dreamt about - that is, until now. These days names such as Brumm, Norev, BHM, Matrix, IXO, MiniChamps, Oxford, Corgi, Ilario, Spark etc. are continuing to develop new standards of perfection in model miniatures.


 If your model collecting falls more into one of the ‘specialist’ categories such as Robots, Lead soldiers, TV and Film, Slot cars, Farming, Military, Ships and Boats, Plastic models, Live Steam, Model Engineering, Plant & Construction, Circus/Showmans.... there is a good chance someone at the Fair will be sharing your passion too!

The Shepherds Inn,  Rosehill, Carlisle
