About Tooleys

Tooleys Amusements have some of the finest traditional side shows and vintage fairground rides in the country, available for hire for any events or filming throughout the UK.

Tooleys Amusements was founded by Tom Tooley in 2012, three years after he bought his first vintage Swingboats for his 16th birthday. Over the years, Tom rebuilt and hand painted the first set of Swingboats, the ‘Royal Jubilee Swingboats’ were then ready for the 2012 season. Following the success of his first set of Swingboats, Tom soon expanded the business by restoring side stalls, building a further set of Swingboats and investing in a stunning 1901 Children‘s Carousel.

2014 saw Sam Tooley join Tom in the business with his English Round Stall. From the further success of Sam’s side of the business, the brothers have expanded to provide an even larger variety of traditional fairground rides and games, catering for all of your needs.

Every ride has been lovingly restored and painted by the brothers to the same highest standard. From their exceptional workmanship to their first class service, Tooleys Amusements will meet, and exceed, your expectations.
