Today is your last chance to visit the South of England Show in 2012 and by the looks of the weather it will also be the best day to go along!
We went along to the Show yesterday and despite it being a bit blustery it was a brilliant day out for the whole family. There was lots to see and do and you can certainly spend all day visiting the many tents, stands and getting up close with animals big and small.
Highlights of the day included the horses in the main arena, the superb Young Craftsman of the Year exhibits, the flower show, the craft stalls and (don’t tell anyone we said so) but the WI Tent for tea/cake and the competition winners. We also spent time with the goats, sheep and pigs!
Not surprisingly we spent quite a lot of time at the Food stalls. We did end up having lunch at the Show to but beware that eating at the South of England Show is not cheap – most things start at £3-£4 so it can be expensive if with a family. We suggest you take a picnic and some snacks with you and then enjoy some of the Shows cake and doughnut stands!!
We highly recommend the South of England Show – we are already planning to return next year!
Finally, if you are going today, don’t forget your wellies! There are plenty of decent paths but the car park and some of the food village are a little more challenging mud wise, so some wellies or sensible outdoor shoes are a must.
