No, tickets and parking will be pre-booked only this year to help manage numbers and ensure the safety of visitors & staff.

Universe will refund the price of your ticket (minus booking fee) in the unlikely event of a cancellation.

General

You can bring a picnic but we do have a large offering of food to go establishments within our food courts.

Alcohol cannot be brought into the Showground.

Think practical and wear appropriate clothing and footwear.

The Royal Highland Show covers over 280 acres and comprises of both indoor and outdoor offerings.

Scotland has been known to experience all four seasons in one day, so it would be advisable to opt for layering clothing and bring a waterproof.

There are multiple permanent toilet blocks with disabled and baby changing facilities located across the Showground.

There are is also a Parents Room located in the Highland Hall on 15th Avenue.

There is also a Changing Places Toilet located in the Cattle Hall/ Highland Hall on 15th Avenue.

We will have an additional adult changing facility located at the East entrance.

Smoking is NOT permitted in any enclosed building or space including the marquees.

Yes, please inform the gate attendant and you will receive a hand stamp to allow re-entry 

The Royal Highland Show is a must for younger visitors and it is free for those aged 15 and under.

The Discovery Centre located on Avenue Q is a must for children of all ages. There are interactive sessions which children can participate in, as well as lots of things to learn about.

Each area within the Royal Highland Show has a number of attractions including live music, the cookery theatre, Grand Parade and much more. Children can also get close to creatures in the Poultry and Honey marquees, where they can learn the bee dance and make candles.

Many children love tractors, so it's worth visiting the machinery trade stands, however, please don't allow children to climb on the displays - it is not safe for them to do so.

There will be free wrist bands for writing a parent or guardian's phone number, which helps ensure that you are quickly reunited with your child should they become separated. These can be collected from The Rotary Club at both main entrances.

There will be a bike rack at the East entrance and West entrance. Please bring your own lock to secure.

The Show's opening times are :

Thursday 22nd  - Saturday 24th  : 7am - 8pm

Sunday 25th : 7am - 6pm

 

Accommodation / Transport

We will have a comprehensive travel & public transport plan in place and available on our website in the new year. 

You can search for nearby campsites and accommodation on the Visit Scotland site: https://www.visitscotland.com/accommodation 

Membership

Members should have received details in the new year.

You can apply to become a RHASS member by following this link - https://rhass.org.uk/members 

Membership of RHASS, the Scottish charity behind the Show, conveys a number of benefits. As well as supporting RHASS’s charitable remit to support Scottish agriculture, members also get free entry to the Show, three copies of Society magazine every year and a number of other benefits including reduced costs on hotel stays and airport parking near the Showground.

 

Provided we have your up-to-date email address, you should have received an email with a link to reserve your day tickets to RHS.

Once you have booked your days at the Show, your Members badge will arrive by post.

Friends and Family tickets and parking will be via email from Universe.

We are asking all our members to let us know on which days they would like to attend the Show. All members are able to come on all four days and if you need to retain flexibility as to which days you will attend, please do book for all four days.

We would appreciate that, if you decide later you are not coming on all four days, you let us know by sending an email in advance to membership@rhass.org.uk.

 

For public safety reasons, we have set a daily capacity this year. Members will have priority to attend the Show, however if members are unable to come on a given day or days, then it would be of benefit to the Society to sell an additional ticket to a member of the public and thereby raise further charitable funds to support others.

This process will be detailed in the new year

In order to manage capacity, we require all members as well as all members of the public to
purchase parking in advance via Universe. In the current landscape this enables us to plan resources appropriately.

Limited overnight parking will be available for purchasers of 2 and 4-day tickets. Please ensure your pass is properly displayed at all times as checks will be undertaken. Please see terms and conditions on the back of the tickets and displayed in car parks.

We used this approach in 2022 which worked very well and plan to take this forward.

All parking must be booked in advance.

As always with the Royal Highland Show and any other large events at the Royal Highland Showground, RHASS works closely with partners including Police
Scotland and City of Edinburgh Council on traffic plans and contingencies.
