In front of the Wharfedale Entrance to the Mart an area will be reserved for disabled / accessible parking – please ask the parking stewards to direct you to this area on arrival.

Entrance to the Mart from this area is wheelchair accessible. 

All toilets, including accessible toilets, are outside both the Wharfedale and Littondale Entrances. 
There is no charge for a companion assisting a wheelchair user. Carers do need a ticket.


We work closely with the local authorities to ensure the safety and security of all our visitors.

Bag checks will be in operation at this event.

To help minimise queues, we advise our visitors to bring the least amount of belongings possible. Please do not bring large items of luggage since necessary security checks of large bags, rucksacks or suitcases may hinder your progress into the show.

Thank you all for your understanding and cooperation.
