What provision do you have for people with disabilities?

 In

We aim to make visiting Countryside Live a comfortable and enjoyable experience for people with disabilities and welcome any observations on further improvements.  Please find details regarding accessibility for visitors:

Disabled parking

An area of car park near the main entrance is the designated car park for disabled visitors. Spaces are limited and allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Disabled permits must be clearly visible and access will only be granted to registered disabled drivers or their carers. Parking spaces cannot be reserved.

Inside the showground

The majority of walkways are of hard-standing and most public buildings and animal areas have ramps or are accessible by wheelchairs. Whilst we try to ensure that the grass avenues are flat, the Showground is on a sloping site which means that some degree of effort is required to push a wheelchair around.

Tickets for disabled visitors & carers

Disabled visitors may bring a carer free of charge. We just ask for proof of care requirement such as personal independence payment, disability living allowance, carers allowance, blue badge registration number and this must be arranged in advance by calling 01423 541222 (open until 12th October). Please also bring this with you on the day.

After 12th October 2018, we advise that visitors can only request carer tickets on the gate. Advance tickets (e-tickets) are available to purchase until 5pm on Friday 19th October 2018. To obtain a carer ticket on the gate, please bring proof of care requirement with you.

Disabled toilets

The majority of toilets on the Showground have disabled facilities.

Wheelchair / scooter hire

Please note that Countryside Live does not operate a wheelchair or scooter hire service.
