Driffield Show 2011 - the other Great Yorkshire Show

Driffield Show takes place on 20 July 2011 this year. The show is well worth a visit as it's a great chance to see many features of rural life. Watching performances, stock judging and show jumping in the main show "ring" provides an opportunity to sit down and take the strain off your feet once you've wandered round the pitches of the many exhibitors. These exhibits range from massive pieces of agricultural machinery to fine Yorkshire Wolds produce.

The show is hosted by Driffield Agricultural Society and takes place at their showground on the outskirts of the town.

If you're planning to visit why not consider travelling by train? We did last year. The traffic around the showground can be considerable with tailbacks building at peak times. We parked in a quiet car park at one of the many village stations on the Hull - Scarborough line. The showground is about a five minute walk from the station and last year shuttle buses were running too. We even got a discount on entry for using the train. We'll be travelling by train again this year.
