As avid Ford fans, visiting Santa Pod for Ford Fest was the perfect day out for myself and my dad. Good range of dealers, displays and events; although just sitting in the sun watching the drag racing was the absolute highlight for both of us! Brilliant selection of food (a bit expensive but worth it) and plenty of services and... More

Love it here, although a little pricey there really is something for everyone. We now come here several times a year and bring our own picnic food On main events, allow for difficult traffic on your way in and bring toilet roll as often ran out. (Toilet areas are good and clean though)

Great day out for all ages 5 and above. Lots of noise, rubber and a petroleum engulfed atmosphere either join in or sit back and listen to these majestic beasts.

This was my first visit to Santa Pod and I was really looking forward to it. The activities leading up to the fire works were brilliant, Monster trucks, drifting, motor bike stunts etc...unfortunately it was a bitter cold day and we arrived when it opened so it was a very long wait for the fire works to start. The display... More

Four of us ( grandparents and young grandsons) went to see fireworks show. Support acts - stunt cars, monster truck and crazy biker - all very good. Fireworks ok but no real wow factor... then sat in car for over an hour going nowhere due to shambolic stewarding and car park organisation. Also incredibly dangerous allowing hundreds of cars to...

I have visited Santa Pod many times. This years firework frenzy was definitely not worth the 2 hour drive! The live action arena being at the opposite side this year meant we couldn't really see anything through the crowds, you got a much better view on the bank in previous years. Don't think I'll be bothering with it next year.... More
