Hall 1 – Caravans, Awnings and Porches
Hall 2-3 – Holiday Caravans, Motorhomes and Campervans

You will usually find me in Hall 4, checking out the latest tents, trailer tents, and camping accessories and where we fall in love with the latest campervans from dirty weekender that we dream of one day owning! My best advice is to download a copy of the Show Guide before you head to the show so that you can see which Exhibitors and Demonstrations you are most interested in seeing so that you can plan your time and avoid disappointment on your day’s visit.
In the foyer between the halls, you will find food courts, brochures and toilets so you can take a pit stop and enjoy some leisure time before diving into the show. It’s also worth checking out the leisure areas for free activities: Watersports Pool and Beachside Cafe in Hall 5, Fun at the Fair in Hall 1, Inspiration Theatre in Hall 2 and Forest Camp and Camping Zone in Hall 4.
