Show address:

Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG2 8NZ.

By road:

The showground is fully signposted on all approach roads and is situated to the SE corner of Harrogate on the A661, Wetherby Road. There is free parking and courtesy buses to main entrance. Please do not rely on sat nav to find the showground.

Disabled Blue badgeholders are parked separately and close to main entrance (on first-come first-served basis). Unfortnately, due to the limited space available, we are not able to accommodate motor homes, caravans or other large vehicles in the Blue Badge car park. Please note that parking in this area is on compacted crushed stone.

There are bicycle racks available adjacent to the main entrance of the show (off Hookstone Wood Road).

By rail:

Two convenient stops on the Leeds/ York line:
Hornbeam Park - 1 mile; Harrogate station - 2 miles, walk or catch the shuttle bus from the bus station. There is a charge for this shuttle service, see below.

By coach:

The coach park has been relocated away from the main entrance (Blue Gate) to allow for extra disabled-badge holder parking.
All visitors arriving by coach now enter via Brown Gate, directly opposite the coach park and can either walk up the hill or catch an internal courtesy bus.

Please note: we would advise that any coach passengers not visiting the show should ask that they are dropped off in town first as the shuttle bus to/from the town centre is located some distance from the coach park.

Shuttle bus:

A shuttle bus operates approx every 20 mins from Harrogate bus station directly to the showground throughout the day. Fares: single £3.20; return £4.70. The bus station is adjacent to the railway station on Station Parade. Please note - this is a private hire service, run independently of the shows, and concessions are not available.
