     Lord George Sanger's indoor menagerie building. Unknown if constructed as part of the original operation from 1874, it possibly later replaced an original building. Documented to have housed 23 cages with the 4 corner conical roofs housing the larger animals. After Sanger's time, the building was reused and restocked as the 'New Zoo'. The structure is assumed to have been hit by a bomb in World War Two with the remaining ruins finally cleared in the late 1960s - early 1970s when the Astroslide was built on the site.

     Dreamland coach station, built in the late 1920s, designed by CFS Palmer, providing facilities to coach visitors. This building was modified with additions to the west side joining up to the Scenic Railway. It was finally demolished by the Bemboms in the early 1990s.

     The new Dreamland Buffet, designed by CFS Palmer and built in 1929 replacing an older building. This building has survived many years of modification and was threatened with demolition as much of the amusement park buildings were being cleared through the early 2000s. Remaining in very poor condition and damaged further by fire during abandoned restorative works by the current amusement park operator, full restoration to original design is pending into 2018. The assumed water tower on the north end of the building was removed in the 1970s likely when the Dreamland Miniature Railway was removed from the site.
