Travelling to the Show

We work closely with Suffolk Police and with the County's transport providers to ensure you can travel quickly, safely and efficiently to the Show.

Cycling to the Show

New for 2015 - Suffolk Show Cycle Park supporting Suffolk's Year of Cycling.

Beat the traffic and cycle to the Suffolk Show this year!

In keeping with Suffolk’s Year of Cycling in 2015 we will be providing a dedicated cycle parking area at the main Felixstowe Road  entrance to the showground.

The cycle parking area will be clearly marked with Suffolk Year of Cycling flags and banners so you can’t miss it! 

Full details of cycle routes and a map to the showground can be found by clicking on Ipswich Cycle Map

Visitors using the cycle parking area are reminded to secure their bikes to the racks provided as no responsibility or liability can be accepted by the Suffolk Show organisers for any losses.

By Car

The Suffolk Show is held at Trinity Park, near Ipswich and conveniently located from both the A14 and A12.  During the Show, there will be extensive signage and, once close to the Show itself, we would ask you to follow the directions from Suffolk Police and our Traffic Officers.  They are working hard to ensure traffic moves swiftly on and off the Show site.

Visitors to the Show are encouraged to travel in 'greener' style and car share.  More information on Suffolk's official car sharing scheme can be found at or call 08700 111199
