If you're coming by car then there's free parking for hundreds of cars just next to the entrance to our show.

Vehicle Sharing

This year we've introduced a Vehicle Sharing service. This is a kind of dating agency to help people make contact who'd like to share a car journey, a minibus, or a taxi. For more information, please visit our Vehicle Sharing page.


Travelling by Public Transport

If you're travelling by train or coach, you're probably best to get off at Leeds or Harrogate. From there you can catch the number 36 bus, which runs between Leeds and Harrogate.

On a Saturday, the number 36 bus is every 15 minutes (click here to see the bus timetable). The journey takes about 20 minutes from Leeds city centre, and about 25 minutes from Harrogate.

The bus stop you need is Alwoodley Gates. Our show is a 10-15 minutes walk from there, in the direction of Harrogate (towards the countryside).

Rather than get a bus from Leeds city centre, maybe you'd like to share a taxi from the train station. If you'd like to find people to share with, please visit our Vehicle Sharing page.


Travelling by Road

If you have a Sat Nav, please use LS17 9NA.
