Horses, tractors, cows, sheep, and more
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Symbol Cane, Wheelchair, Powerchair
The Show is spread over a large area so can be challenging. That said it is fairly good with Tarmac surfaces or boardwalks to get to most stands and displays.
Transport & Parking
There is a dedicated Blue Badge car park. A special bus service, the number 98 runs from St Andrew Square in the city centre out to the show and is wheelchair accessible
Getting around was ok as a powerchair user. That said my visually impaired pal found it quite disorientating. You do have to be able to walk or wheel quite large distances. Signposting was not great so you have to read the site plan or take a chance. It is extremely busy so if you don't like crowds it's not the place to be.
Not well signposted, if at all - bad design as all the ones I used had inward opening doors - very hard to get powerchair in and close the door
Staff we spoke to were very friendly and did their best to help.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
A bit of a challenge but well worth going
