Public Camping

Experience the sights, the sounds and the tastes of a real steam weekend.

Join us for £25 for the whole weekend or £15 for one night and day.  Up to 2 adults and accompanied children under 16 included in the price.

What’s included?

Up to 2 adults and accompanied children under 16 included in the price per pitch. You’ll get one camping pitch (1 Caravan, 1 tent or 1 campervan), free entry to the show both days (if you’ve booked for the weekend) and access to the evening entertainment. A children’s tent accompanying the adults is allowed. Staying in the camping area gives you unlimited access to the show and entertainment.

What do I get to prove I’ve booked?

We’ll send you an email for the pitches booked. You should show this at the main non-public entrance gate when you arrive. We will also have your details on the entry gate and will give you a camping pass for the evening / weekend.

What are the times and dates?

Depending upon what pitch you have booked, earliest entry onto the event site for camping is 12 noon on the Friday immediately before the show and the site must be vacated by 12 noon on Monday following the event. You will not be allowed to move your vehicle (including caravan) on Saturday or Sunday during public opening times. If you do need to leave the site during the day on Saturday or Sunday we suggest that you park your vehicle in the public car park.

How do I pay?

Payment by cheque only, please.

Is there drinking water, a WC, and elsan?


Is there electric hook ups?

No, sorry.

Can I have visitors during the weekend?

Yes of course during the day, but if you have visitors during the show, they will be charged entry and must park in the public car park and come through the general public pay gate.

What if I have a question?
