How to get to the South of England Showground, Ardingly

The easiest way to get to the showground is by road, however there are trains and buses.

Below are the links to both the bus provider and British Rail.

By Road:

The main entrance to the South of England Showground is on the B2028 Selsfield Road, close to the centre of Ardingly Village. The venue is such a big site that we suggest that you use the pub opposites postcode RH17 6TJ as this brings you to the main gate.

From the M25, exit at junction 7 and follow the M23 towards Brighton. Leave at junction 10 and take the A264 towards East Grinstead. After approximately two miles turn right onto the B2028. After passing through the villages of Turners Hill and Selsfield Common you will arrive at the South of England Event Centre on your right.
