Information for disabled visitors
Harrogate Flower Shows at the Great Yorkshire Showground have excellent facilities for the disabled visitor.
We welcome all visitors to the show. For those requiring the additional assistance of a carer to visit the event, complimentary carer tickets are available. These must be booked in advance online when purchasing admission tickets.
Please note that one example of the following supporting documentation will be required on entry to the show to validate the carer ticket: Personal Independence Payments (PIP’s), Severe Disablement Allowance, Attendance Allowance, War Pensioners’ Mobility Allowance or War or Service Disablement Pension, Blind or partially sighted registration certificate (BD8 or CVI Certificate), or confirmation from Social Services or GP that the person has long term disability (including learning) and requires a full time carer.
If this documentation is not provided at the entrance, the full ticket price will be charged. If required, assistance dogs are welcome.
We have Blue Badge parking for cars. This is allocated on a first-come first-served basis for registered disabled badge-holders only. Please follow the yellow signs approaching the showground and display your blue badge. Blue badges only give access to the car park and not to the show.
Due to the limited space available, we are not able to accommodate motor homes, caravans or other large vehicles in any parking areas.
Please note all show parking is either on grass or compacted crushed stone.
