Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: The Suffolk Show is organised by the Suffolk Agricultural Association and is part of their 186 year history. The Show is the largest pop-up event for families in the county, the Suffolk Show is a fantastic day out for big kids and little kids alike and, as under 15’s go free, it’s great value for money too. Enjoy a unique opportunity to get close to some of the 1000’s of animals, including sheep, cows, rabbits, goats and pedigree pigs as well as some incredible horses and ponies during one of the displays or competitions throughout the day.

Overpriced, boring as anything, and just full of shops selling vastly overpriced "country" attire/food/jewellery and businesses trying to promote themselves and drum up business from the more affluent crowd who frequent these events. I can understand businesses selling agricultural vehicles, but many of the other businesses exhibited seemed out of place and at odds with a supposed County show. We were all bored to death, and the prices at the food outlets were just ridiculous. We shan't be going again.

Well worth a look as so many different stands there's always something to interest most people. Lots of different foods much more than just farming.

Definitely worth a visit if you have never been before. Plenty to see and do for all the family....but does tend to be the same each year, so a couple of visits is enough before it can get a little 'samey'! Entrance price keeps going up....so look out for any advanced deals to get best value for money.

We took our grandchild who is 3 years old and I can say quite literally there is something there for what ever age you are she had a wonderful day out it was a treat to take her. Of course the show is about farming but there is a lot more beside actually you have a job seeing it all in a day
