The Country Show changes a bit ever year. This year safety measures include searches at the 2 entry points (Herne Hill & Lido)  so the show area has to be fenced within the park.  Come early to avoid queues. Last entry 6.30pm. Entry remains free and unticketed.

To get to the Country Show  please walk, cycle or travel by public transport ( 68 or 196 bus from West Norwood) . The only parking is for Blue Badge holders who apply in advance.
