Disabled Access & Camping

Disabled visitors are very welcome at the Great Dorset Steam Fair.  Please be aware that because the showground is a working farm there are steep, stony, hill sections and some areas of the site may be difficult to access due to the land. However, our team of stewards will do their best to assist you.

All campsites open from 8am on Tuesday 20th August and close midday on Tuesday 27th August.

We provide a number of facilities to assist disabled visitors’ needs which include; dedicated disabled parking, dedicated disabled camping areas, disabled toilets and showers.

A mobility scooter hire facility is available and located near the Showground entrance. However, scooters need to be booked in advance of the show by contacting Poole Shop Mobility on 01202 670450 or visiting their website www.wheelsforfreedom.org.uk. Scooter availability is limited and it is advised to book your scooter well in advance to avoid disappointment.

We do not have any facilities for charging electric wheelchairs; we advise you to bring your own generator or book an electrical hook-up pitch.
