Golden Acre Theme Park, Leeds, 1937

Golden Acre theme park in Leeds opened in 1932. It was an ambitious park, with features that were perhaps unique for its time in England including a boating lake, speedway, crazy bicycles, bumper cars and other rides. Watch the film for archive footage of Golden Acre Theme Park from 1937
