The Showground is situated in the heart of Medina Valley, on Newport Road, between Newport and Cowes. The ground covers several acres and includes a woodland area.
Car-free is easy!
Leave the car behind and travel to the show using sustainable transport. Less cars on the road means you’ll get here faster.
Park & Ride
Leave your car at The Isle of Wight College car park and catch the Southern Vectis Route 1 bus that will take you to the Showground.
Address: Medina Way, Newport PO30 5TA
Or leave your car at Somerton Park & Ride at Cowes, and catch the Southern Vectis Route 1 bus to the Showground.
Address: Somerton Park & Ride (2 mins from Booker Cash & Carry and opposite Aldi), Three Gates Road, Cowes, PO31 7UP
Catch the Southern Vectis Route 1 bus from Cowes or Newport for a stress free day out. Buses depart every 8 minutes and stop just outside the Showground. Southern Vectis offer a comprehensive network around the Island. Visit www.islandbuses.info to plan your journey. On the day, you’ll be able to snap up a County Show Group Rover for £15 (usually £25) for up to 5 people, for unlimited travel within 24 hours – it will be available through the Southern Vectis mobile app clickit2ride
Walk or cycle
The most scenic way to get here is via the Cowes to Newport cycle path and then turn off at Medham. Alternatively, come along the Newport Road which runs between Newport and Cowes – we’re about half way along. At the top of the Showground we have created an entrance (White Entrance) especially for pedestrians and cyclists. Bike racks are provided.
There’s free parking at the Showground and then it’s a couple of minutes’ walk to all activities. However the road can be very busy, so we recommend parking in the ‘Park and Ride’ carpark at the Isle of Wight College, Medina Way, Newport PO30 5TA. You can then get a Southern Vectis Route 1 that stops right outside the Showground.
Access for everyone
We welcome anyone with wheelchairs, mobility scooters or pushchairs. There are disabled toilets on the site. The Showground is mostly flat but it’s a field and so it can be bumpy and muddy. There are also power cables which are carefully placed but could be a trip hazard.
Enjoy lovely & local food and drink – look for the Wight Marque!
