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 and temporary toilets, accessible toilets and baby changing facilities located across the Showground. Please download the RHS App or purchase a programme on entry to the event to view the locations on our map.

We have Parent Rooms in the Cattle Hall and beside the RHET Discovery Centre and Changing Place facilities in the Cattle Hall, Members Area and Avenue H.

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

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.

In 2023, the return of Golden Shears World Sheep Shearing & Woolhandling Championships will wow them with lightning speed shearing - blink and you'll miss it!

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.

During the four Show Days, dogs are permitted in the RHC on the understanding that:

  1. They will be kept on a short lead and under control;
  2. Owners will clean up after them;
  3. With the exception of assistance-dogs, they are not permitted in the following:
  • Areas in which animals are contained, for example, the Cattle Hall and Sheep Pens;
  • Areas densely populated by people including standing galleries, seating decks, grandstands, exhibition halls, marquees, tents, or buildings;
  • Areas used for catering.

Please monitor the dog’s behaviour and if any of the animals react to your dog’s presence, move away. Those in possession of any dog may be asked to leave any area at the discretion of RHS staff. If required, due to an incident or situation arising on the day, those in possession of a dog may be asked to leave any area, at the discretion of RHASS staff.

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 SEE tickets. 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. We will also be communicating through press, media, social channels, website and emails.

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
