We do not offer a disabled person’s discount, but we will give registered disabled visitors a complimentary access ticket for their carer. All tickets can be purchased directly through the online Box Office.

Is the event wheelchair accessible?

Wheelchair access is possible, however, due to the uneven terrain of the Event site, along with the distance between the Dressage and the main Show-jumping arena, it may be at times difficult for disabled spectators to move around freely and easily. As a result of this, travel to certain areas of the Event site may not be suitable for those who suffer from impaired mobility or for those who have certain medical conditions.

Do you have Blue Badge car-parking?

We have plenty of forward Blue Badge parking available, though we cannot allocate any spaces in advance. Upon arrival at the event, please follow signs and our traffic marshalls to the specified Blue Badge parking. You may be asked to show your blue badge upon arrival at the car park, so please have it ready.

I have a broken leg, can I park in the disabled car park?

Guests who have broken limbs and other walking impairments are welcome to go to the Blue Badge parking upon arrival and explain their situation and we will do our best to find you a suitable space.

Will you have disabled toilets?

Yes, disabled toilets will be available in the car park and across the event site.

Can I bring my dog?

Dogs are very welcome so long as you ensure that they are well-behaved and kept on a short lead at all times. Please note that dogs are not allowed within the Deer Park at any time which is where the dressage is located, so please bear this in mind.
