Travel by carRoutes to the show are signposted on all major roads in the area. Due to changes associated with the newly opened A556 your route to the show may be different this year. Please follow the yellow and black show signs and not your satnav as this will minimise delays entering and exiting the show. Please allow adequate time for your journey as, while we endeavour to keep traffic free-flowing, situations beyond our control may cause delays.
The drop-off point for cars and taxis is the Rostherne Gate.
ParkingThere is ample parking within the grounds of Tatton Park, free of charge. You will be directed to an appropriate car park on arrival. All car parks are open from 8am, and close one hour after the show closes.
Parking on the roads around the showground is strictly prohibited.
Coach parkingThe coach park is clearly signposted from the A556, and is free of charge.
Useful informationThis is a temporary, outdoor event on open parkland and is subject to varying weather and ground conditions. Although some temporary trackway is laid, much of the event is staged on open ground and care must be taken. We therefore advise that you check the weather forecast for the day of your visit, consider the nature of the event and the effects of any inclement weather on surface conditions, and wear suitable clothing and footwear. In extreme weather conditions, access may be restricted in the interest of safety.
Visitors may be subject to random security searches.

RHS Gardening AdviceThe RHS Gardening Advice stands are manned by our team of experts who give advice to visitors at all our shows on a host of subjects. At the RHS we are committed to protecting plant health and ask that visitors bring photographs of their plant problems to our shows rather than live plant material. This applies when visiting the RHS Gardening Advice stands or exhibitors in the floral marquees and will help to safeguard all the plants at the shows.
