“Enormous but muddy”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Far too many thngs to see in 1 day. It is a huge event and worth a visit if you take wellington boots, the mud and drizzly rain makes it pretty unbareable but if you are the outdoors type, it won't bother you.
There are far too many marquees to visit every one of them and if you are a trader, be careful who you choose to join, the organisers seem very strange people. The event organisers want to charge to take a vhehicle onto the showground when you set-up, so make sure you go the day before the event otherwise it costs an extra £20!

“Too expensive”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

Sadly I believe this will be our last year going to this event. Spent £85 on entry, car park and food, not on a family of 10 but on two plain adults...this is simply too expensive. Food in particular was incredibly bad value for money.

“Suffolk show 2014”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

A fantastic day out for all.
An agricultural show,with a family a feel,plenty to see and do,including a military zone,learning zone,a funfair,plenty of breeds of animals,farm machinery new and old.

There are plenty of shopping areas and catering facilities.
A fantastic food hall, presenting lots of suffolk's finest foods.

There are various entertaining shows from the numerous show rings.
The show is well organised from parking,to getting around the show ground.
Well worth a visit,very reasonably priced for a family day out as this year children under 14 get in for free.

“Good day out, but very expensive”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

A good day out for the family, but very expensive to get in, park and to eat - £25 for an adult and £5 parking is too much. Lots of good attractions, but everybody seems to want to make lots of money from the event and charge though the noise

“overpriced”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

overpriced for what it is, not enough value for money just seems like stall after stall of different businesses trying to promote their product. they need more things for children and more shows or entertainment for adults.

I would go again if they jazzed it up a bit and added more things "to do" rather than "to see"
