The Great Yorkshire Show is here!
Tomorrow sees the start of the annual Great Yorkshire Show – England’s premiere agricultural show – in Harrogate.
Set in 250 acres and with an anticipated 135,000 visitors over the three days of the event (Tuesday 11th – Thursday 13th) this is one of the finest agricultural shows in the UK.
There are all the usual things to see and enjoy – cattle, sheep, pigs, goats; tractors and heavy machinery; horses: whether drays or showjumpers; and the fantastic food hall. The Great Yorkshire Show is also famous for it’s Cheese Show, Flower Hall and Fashion Show; there really is something for everyone and it’s a must visit event for many!
Travel to the show does cause congestion on many roads around the Harrogate area – and those staying at Allerton Holiday Park may be affected. If you are visiting the show then it may be worth considering driving to Cattal and then catching the train into Harrogate and catching the Great Yorkshire Show bus to the Showground. Alternatively if you wish to drive to the show, then avoid peak times by departing from Allerton at around 10am. There are various one-way systems in operation that you will need to observe if you are driving.

A day out at the show is well worth the visit. There are no dogs allowed on the showground or in the car parks though so please don’t take your dog with you.
Enjoy your day – and share your photos with us afterwards!
