There’s something quintessentially British about visiting a traditional agricultural show, a chance to celebrate the great outdoors and the best of British farming, country pursuits and local produce.
When it comes to agricultural shows they don’t get much bigger than the Great Yorkshire Show, with hundreds of attractions and activities to keep you entertained.
See over 12,000 animals battle it out to be named best-in-class. Judge for yourself the prize-winning pigs and sheep!
Enjoy live demonstrations of country skills, including sheep shearing, milking and dry stone walling, and browse.
Where else could you buy agricultural machinery and designer clothes at the same venue? You’re certain to find some unique presents here for your friends who are notoriously hard to buy for at the 1,200 stands bursting with anything and everything from gifts, crafts, ceramics, jewellery, clothing and agricultural equipment.
Test samples and feast on the high quality local produce in the food and drink tents and see top celebrity chefs share their tips in the cooking theatre.
A big attraction of the show is always the equestrian events as the world’s elite compete in world class show jumping and equine classes. Don’t miss the super-fast Shetland Pony Grand National.
Alternatively why not consider Driffield Annual Show, Lincolnshire Show or Bakewell Country Show? Each provides a real insight into country life and has a wealth of activities for all ages, including falconry, horticultural displays, fairground rides, motorcycle stunts and live music.
You’ll be spoilt for choice with the fantastic range of things to see and do for the entire family.
