    Disabled Parking

    Sainsbury’s car park, off Wetherby Road, is the designated disabled visitors’ car park with easy access to both Yellow and Green entrances. Access to the show is via the Orange entrance with the availability of a drop off/pick up point from Sainsbury’s car park.

    Local Authority Permits (Blue Badges) or Great Yorkshire Show Disabled Parking Labels should be clearly displayed. Blue badge holders do not require a GYS label.

    Parking spaces cannot be reserved in advance and are available on a first come, first served basis.  If the car park is full additional parking will be available in alternative areas.

    Most walkways around the Showground are hard standing with ramps that are accessible by wheelchairs. Grass avenues are also rolled to help with access around the Show.

    The Showground is however on a slope which can mean a degree of effort to push a wheelchair around.

    Tickets for Disabled Visitors & Carers

    As from 2023, carer tickets no longer need to be arranged in advance. However, all visiting guests except for the carer require a purchased entry ticket which are available online or via the ticket line (subject to availability).

    Carers can now gain free entry on the day, so that one carer will be able to enter the Great Yorkshire Show when accompanying a guest who cannot cope without their support.

    To gain free entry for the carer on the day of your visit to the Show, you will need to present one of the following forms of documentation at the gate:

    • A valid Blue badge
    • Allowance Book or Letter confirming Entitlement to Disability Living Allowance (DLA), or Personal Independence Payments (PIP)
    • Attendance Allowance or Carer’s Allowance letter of award
