Sandringham Flower Show is one of the most prestigious horticultural events in the East of England. Now in its 138th year, it is much more than just a Flower Show. It is a unique event offering not only the best in horticulture but also an excellent day out, filled with family entertainment.

Set in the magnificent surroundings of Sandringham Park with Sandringham House and Sandringham Church as a backdrop, this one-day Show attracts around 20,000 visitors each year. From the beginning the Show has been privileged to enjoy Royal patronage and traditionally our Royal Patron attends the Show.

For satnav users, the postcode is PE31 6AZ, but as you get close to the Flower Show please follow the AA signage, particularly if you need the disabled car parking area or the coach park, rather than the satnav directions.

Flower Show visitors should be aware that unfortunately mobile phone signals are very intermittent at the show, therefore vendors are sometimes unable to use credit card machines. ATMs are available in nearby villages but are not onsite.

Visitors with mobility difficulties should be aware that the Show is held on grassland; it covers a large area, part of which is on a slope. There is not a great deal of seating available and many visitors bring shooting sticks or folding stools.

An area of the car park is set aside for people with disabilities; it has a separate entrance so road signage should be followed.

Hire of scooters and wheelchairs for the day is available through Advanced Mobility Solutions who will be attending the Show. Please telephone 01274 297777 or use their website http://www.advanced-mobility.co.uk/event-hire/
