Travelling to the Show - Dorchester Showground


The Show will be sign posted from the Dorchester Ring Road.  If you are approaching Dorchester from Yeovil (A37), Wimborne (A35) or Wareham (A352) follow the yellow signs.  The Dorchester Showground is approximately 1 mile from the town centre inside the Ring Road.  Turn towards Dorchester Town Centre at the Kingston Maurward College roundabout and take the first right.  The Showground is on the left.
