Getting Here


As our events are very popular, parking is extremely limited at Bishop Burton. As such, we will be charging £5 per car to limit the number of vehicles on campus. We encourage visitors to use our FREE accessible park-and-ride service from Beverley.

This year, this is no pre-booked parking. All parking will be available on the day via our Main Entrance on the A1079.

Please do not park in Bishop Burton village.

Free Park and Ride from Beverley

Save on parking and use our handy FREE park and ride service from Beverley, which runs from the School Lane car park adjacent to Beverley Fire Station. All of the buses used are accessible, to make your journey as smooth as possible.

Buses will depart every 15 – 25 minutes from 10:15am. The earlier buses are usually the busiest, so to avoid queuing we'd advise arriving a little later.

Return buses from Bishop Burton College’s bus terminal will run throughout the event, with the last return bus leaving at 3:15pm.

Food and Drink

We'll have a whole host of options available when it comes to food and drink.

Whether you fancy a home baked sausage roll or a jacket potato, a two-course roast or a cup of tea and a slice of cake, we've got you covered at our cafes. Why not pre-book your roast dinner to reserve your table?

We'll also be joined by some wonderful trade stands, offering everything from fresh pizza to fish and chips.

Payment at the event

Bishop Burton is a cashless campus. Please bring your card with you to pay for entry tickets and food from our cafes during your visit.

We will accept cash as well as card for parking. Please try to bring the exact amount (£5) where possible.

We'd recommend bringing some cash with you too, to treat yourself when you visit our trade stands.
