Once in Bishop Auckland, we offer a range of parking options which you can choose from (subject to availability), depending on where you are arriving from, your arrival time, whether you want to enjoy what the town has to offer before heading to our show ground to experience Kynren.

There are over 1,500 car park spaces within walking distance of our show ground, and a beautiful carpet of wild flowers on either side of the path winding down from the A689 to the Kynren entrance. However, for those who prefer not to walk, we operate a Park & Ride system, with shuttle buses operating to and from the Kynren show ground from each of our car parks. And of course, the wild flowers will still be there for everyone who chooses to ‘Park & Walk’ to enjoy.

Once you have arrived at the ticket and security check on the Kynren site – whether you have reached us through Park & Walk or Park & Ride – there is a further 350m walk along a mostly flat path to reach the Tribune area and its facilitie, the Food Village and toilets.

We have a wide range of facilities and arrangements in place to ensure visitors with disabilities and low mobility are well looked after. If you are concerned that walking to the Tribune or to your seat will present difficulties, please read the information on accessibility arrangements here.
