The show is well worth visiting; the standard is generally high but not intimidating! Even if it seems like it is a long trip for the show it might be worth remembering that a visit could easily be combined with a visit to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway or the National Railway Museum. Even all three if you make a weekend of it! Details of where to stay can be found here.
