Parking

There will be strict parking controls in roads adjacent to the show site and in the town centre on show nights, so if you are arriving by car, you must buy a show parking voucher in advance (£7 per car) allowing you to use one of our dedicated off-site car parks. Parking must be booked in advance.

We have three off-site car parks to choose from within walking distance of our show ground (ranging from 15 to 40 minutes, depending on the car park), with a shuttle transfer system operating from each one if you prefer not to walk.  See full details of the parking arrangements and locations of the car parks on our website.  We also offer on-site parking for the exclusive use of Blue Badge holders.  

Please plan your journey to arrive at your chosen car park in plenty of time. There are lots of things to see, so please do come early to ensure you make the most of all there is to enjoy before the performance! Just as Arthur does in Kynren, you too can travel through time at our pre-show attractions before you take your seat in the Tribune. 

Our attractions open at least 3.5 hours before the show starts across the summer and 3 hours before in September.
