Travel Information


The Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate, is easily accessible from all parts of the country by road, rail or air.


Please follow the signed routes to the Show on your approach to Harrogate and do not rely on satellite navigation systems as these may direct you onto a route with limited access or temporary restrictions.

Visitors travelling to the Show from the south along the A1(M) northbound carriageway should exit at junction 46 (Wetherby) and follow the GYS direction signs.
