Parking and queues

Queues are inevitable at peak times, so please be patient upon arrival. We'd suggest you visit Monday to Friday to avoid busy periods. Car parks will close when the event reaches capacity and will only re-open if space becomes available. Parking attendants will be on hand to help you when the event wraps up at 7pm.
