A really fun day out for all the family, animals, show rings, entertainment, trade stands and craft tents all set on a huge site. The down side is lenghthy vehicle queueing going onto the site and then leaving at peak times. Can take an hour or two to get out! Tickets are pricey but can be purchased more cheaply if... More

Great day out, so much to see and do. We have been going since the kids were young, they have grown up and we still go.

Turned up early so no problem with parking. By the time it opened I could see the carpark filling up. First time I have been here in years and really enjoyed it. Loads to see and do can't wait for next year.

We love the Suffolk Show. Plenty to see and do for the whole family. My daughter loves to visit the Suffolk College tent and having her hair braided. My son loves climbing aboard the helicopter and trying his hand at the free archery, rock climbing and cycling. We shall definitely be returning next year.

Food here is a rip off. Bacon roll was priced at £4 when we walked past, 10 minutes later it had gone up by 50p! It was cold. Had Hogg roast in a roll for lunch. Pork was so dry, ran out of stuffing and roll was dry it stuck to roof of mouth.

Having lived in Ipswich most of my life I had never been to the Suffolk Show before. Most people I know complain the roads are heavily congested and the ticket price is too expensive. However I am annoyed that I have listened to hearsay and avoided the show for so many years! I attended with a 9 and 6 year... More

A great day out. Usually during school half term May/June the Suffolk show is essential for families in Suffolk. Two days of packed country activities - one day visit us not enough' food, drink, livestock, machinery, - so much to see. Something for all the family.
