Junction 7 on the M11 motorway is some 2 miles away and so road access to the M25 and north east London is excellent. Immediate access to the airfield is via the A414, with Chelmsford less than 20 miles to the east and Harlow a short distance to the west. Do bear in mind that the Saturday Market on the airfield generates a lot of traffic in its own right and the approaches to the airfield can be quite slow between about 0930 and 1200 on the SATURDAY ONLY. If possible try to time your journey to arrive before or after this time to promote relaxation and good Karma! For detailed mapping, try looking on Google Maps here!

Once you approach the airfield, follow the yellow AA signs and Wings & Wheels Entrance signs for pinpoint entrance to the showground. Please follow all direction signs carefully since these have been designed to get you into and out of the showground as quickly and efficiently as possible. A useful resource for up to date road traffic reports has been brought to our attention. Frixo gives a constantly updated picture of road systems and traffic problems throughout England.
The nearest railway stations are in Harlow, with London Underground's Central Line terminating 2 miles away in Epping. It is advisable to take a taxi to the show from there and taxis should enter the showground rather than drop off on the main road since this causes traffic congestion and can be dangerous.
