Great Yorkshire Show: Latest travel, weather and ticket updates

Have your say

UNDER perfect skies, the advance guard of an expected 130,000 visitors have begun pouring into Harrogate’s Great Yorkshire Showground for England’s largest agricultural event.

The three-day Great Yorkshire Show, staged at a cost of £3m, and now in its 158th year, has attracted more than 12,000 competitive entries involving more than 8,000 animals.

Perfect weather is forecast for the first day, with light winds and only the distant chance of a light shower.



Traffic has cleared after congestion earlier on Tuesday.

Everyone heading to the show is advised to do so as early as possible.

Wetherby Road in Harrogate will be one way to ease congestion this evening.


All rail services running as normal.
