How to get Here


The Nottinghamshire County Show is very easy to get to being just 1.5 miles from the A1.

 

Travelling By Car
Access can be from the A46, but the ideal approach is from the A17 which allows a longer build of traffic onto the 20 acre South-Eastern runway. The Newark Showground is only 1.5 miles from the A1 and offers many facilities and will be very well signposted over the Show Weekend.
