The Dreamland visitor centre will open today paving the way for the reopening of the historic theme park. Dreamland was one of the country's oldest amusement parks and at one time included a zoo, miniature railway, a cinema, a 2,000-capacity ballroom and Europe's largest big wheel.

But as tastes changed the amusement park fell on hard times, before it finally closed in 2003.
