Is their Blue Badge Camping/Parking?

The terrain at Euston Park is quite hilly but the main arena and the majority of activities are on the flatter part of the site. Entrance for disabled day visitors will be sign-posted. This parking is on the lower, flatter part of the site and it’s approx. 300-400m walk to the main arena from here. We have disabled loo and shower facilities. Watch our event video here to see the site.

Blue badge holders attending for the weekend can select any of the camping sites on the day (please display your Blue Badge clearly in your windscreen) and are also welcome to camp along past the black wrought iron gates to the Hall. This area is flat and close to the main arena. This will be marked on our Site Map. Buy a General Camping ticket (your blue badge will mean you can choose where is best for you on arrival or head to a designated area near the main arena.)
