Where do I park at The Big One Show in 2019

We can today confirm the parking problems which dogged last year’s event at Farnborough – the first in the new, purpose-built exhibition centre - have been sorted for 2019.

This year there will be an additional 2,100 spaces for visitors, including room for over a thousand vehicles on the grass area right outside the entrance to the show!

Importantly, the car park used last year which involved a 35 minute walk for some visitors will not be used this time.

Instead, we’ve secured spaces at all the closest car parks to the halls, the furthest just an 11 minute stroll to the front door.

To make the trip from car to show even easier, we’ve also doubled the number of buggies and minibuses to transport visitors and their purchases!

A new ‘Shop & Drop’ facility inside the show will also be in operation this year too so anyone who buys bigger or heavier items of tackle will be able to leave them safely and continue their look around the show.

“The grass parking served us well for the last nine years,” said Show Director Vince Davies. “Last year was very unfortunate as the weather was so wet in the run up to the show that we were unable to use it which led to the problems we had.

“We’re doing everything in our power to make sure this a smooth event for all visitors and the extra parking we’ve secured and facilities we’re providing will help massively.”
