The Surrey County Show is a fantastic family day out, bringing the countryside and rural life into the heart of Guildford.
Every year the Surrey County Show brings the Countryside to town, bringing with it a fantastic day out for all the family. With the organised competitions, entertainment it really does have something for everyone.
The show is held on the 66-acre site of Stoke Park, just a mile from Guildford Town Centre. The biggest one-day agricultural show in the UK, it welcomes around 30,000 visitors each year and has the luxury of excellent road links, a train station just a few minutes’ walk away and free off-site park and ride.
With a family ticket costing about the same as a trip to the cinema, the Surrey County Show is great value for money and a day out not to be missed!
