Cars - Please use Park And Ride
Parking at the Show is no longer available. You are strongly advised to use one of the two Park and Ride services.
The Park and Ride service will operate from both locations on Friday and Saturday.
The west side of town P&R is called Silk Mills and the east side of town, by Junction 25 M5, is called Gateway.
Taunton is accessible from both J25 and J26 on the M5, in Somerset, half way between Bristol and Exeter.
Use J26 if you are coming from the south - and head for Silk Mills Park and Ride (follow the signs).
Use J25 if you are coming from the north - and head for the Gateway Park and Ride.
Use the A358 if you are coming from the Yeovil direction - and head for the Gateway Park and Ride.
Use the A358 if you are coming from the Minehead direction - and head for the Silk Mills Park and Ride.
The Park and Ride buses will set down & pick up at the bottom of the High Street. It's a short walk, through the flat, pedestrianised High Street to the Vivary park entrance gates, to the showground.

Where Vivary Park Is in Taunton:
Vivary park is south central in Taunton, so very easy to get to from anywhere in the town centre. The park is located at the top of the High Street in Taunton. We have three pedestrian entrances into the Park for the show days, the main Town Gate entrance on Mary Street (opposite the end of the High Street), Wilton Gate via Fons George, and the Mount Gate entrance, near Taunton Deane Cricket Club, reached from Mount Street. Most pedestrian visitors arrive through the Mary Street gates.
A number of local and regional bus routes come to Taunton. Please speak to your bus provider to understand where their nearerst stop is. The Show is in Vivary park directly opposite the end of the High Street. First bus website can be found here
The railway station is the other side of town. It is approximately a 15 minute walk from the station to the park. The route is down Station Road, along Bridge Street, then along North Street, cross over and through the pedestrianised High Street. Vivary Park is at the top of the High Street. To obtain train times, please see the trainline.
