Set off early to beat traffic, buy entry and parking tickets before you go to get the most out of your Show
We are getting ready to welcome 85,000 visitors to the Show and many will be travelling by car.
Follow the signs and set off early and we will keep you up-to-date on social media and through BBC Radio Norfolk about any traffic delays.
Purchasing parking tickets online before the show starts on Wednesday will help to prevent queues forming.

Peak times are expected to be from 9am to 11am, so best to avoid.
