Information for visitors coming by car

Finding the Show

The Show is well signed from the A30, A39, A393 & A394.

If using a SatNav to find the Showground use the postcode TR3 7DP, BUT please follow the official signs as you get closer to the Showground.

If you have a show issued vehicle pass of any kind or disabled badge it must be clearly displayed on the windscreen before you approach the Showground. Badges/passes that are flat on the dash will not be visible to the parking staff and you will be placed in the normal public parking.

Parking

The car parks are designated as red and green and any passes issued will reflect this. For those without passes please enter the first car park you come to to enable you to return by the route on which you came.

There is ample FREE general public parking. Car parks open an hour before the Show. The ringside parking area is chargeable and on a first come, first served basis.

Some queuing is almost inevitable as you approach or leave the Showground, especially at peak times, and you are asked to be patient. Please follow the instructions of the car park operatives as they are there to get everyone parked and out as easily and quickly as possible.

It may be necessary for some cars to be parked in overflow car parks but these are close to the main Showground entrances.

Sorry no reservations are taken for ringside area (chargeable) or disabled parking - come early.

Note for Vice Presidents, Exhibitors, Competitors and Traders


There is a forward parking area for Vice Presidents of the Show in each car park and a pass is issued upon application at the time of paying the annual subscription. This is available for use before 11 a.m. and subject to available space. Vehicles displaying an appropriate disabled pass are also parked in the forward parking area.

For exhibitors, competitors and traders there are special arrangements and you should note the colour of your pass as this relates to the gate you must use to get to the appropriate place on the Showground. Please also note and obey the traffic management signs on the approach to and within the Showground.

N.B. ALL PASSES MUST BE DISPLAYED BEFORE ARRIVING AT THE SHOWGROUND ENTRANCE.

VEHICLES NOT DISPLAYING THEIR PASSES, INCLUDING DISABLED PATRONS WILL BE PLACED IN THE PUBLIC CAR PARK.
