Yes, there’s plenty of free parking in the field. But it’s much easier to come by public transport on the No 1 bus from Newport or Cowes. You can also access the show via the Cowes to Newport cyclepath, so walk or bring your bike (we have bike parking too!).

Yes, we’ve got disabled parking and toilets.
For 2024, we are also pleased to announce that we are offering mobility scooter hire, which will need to be booked prior to the show at – bookings can be made from 3rd April
There will also be a dedicated area for the disabled around the Main Ring, so you should get a good view of the great performances. However please be aware that the Showground is a field, so can be bumpy and muddy.

Yes, dogs are very welcome – and you could enter your pet into one of the many dog classes on the day, to show off their agility or just how cute they are! Please just be aware that dogs need to be kept on a lead in the Showground and aren’t allowed into the food areas.

Yes, you can – and you can pay by cash, cards and contactless payments. But it’s cheaper to buy your tickets in advance from this website! It’s £12.50 for adults on the day, or £10.50 in advance. We also have weekend tickets available; £20 on the day, or £15 in advance. Children under 16 go free with a paying adult. We’ve kept costs low and when you get to the show, most of the events are free. There are also Show Guides available to purchase, which features a programme of events, so you don’t miss the various activities taking place around the showground.

For many of the classes, you need to enter in advance – you can download forms from this website.

No, not in the Showground. The closest cash points will be in Cowes and Newport. But many of the exhibitors will take contactless payments and cards at their stalls.

Just turn up on the day with your doggie – you’ll need to register by 1.45pm and the show starts at 2pm. It costs £2 per class.

Absolutely – there are lots of areas where you can sit and enjoy your picnic. The Village Green and Woodland are perfect spots for you. However we recommend trying all the tasty local tuck that will be available at the show, from local makers and growers.

Yes, all over the show, you’ll find hand hygiene points, so that you can clean up after handling the animals.

Yes, why not – get into the spirit of things!

We absolutely approve! There will be face painting available, if they would like to complete the look at the show!
