“Somewhat elitist in part but still a good family day out”
Review of The Suffolk Show

The Suffolk Show
Ranked #19 of 114 things to do in Ipswich
Attraction details
Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

After a break of 3 years we returned on the 2nd day of the show this year. I personally find the whole idea of having what is in effect an affluent bunch of toffs having their day partly funded by jo publics admission fee slightly offensive. But equally money is raised by a number of good causes which has got to be a good thing. I would like to see it becoming a more inclusive event but it is still a very interesting and fun day for all the family which showcases all the best that Suffolk has to offer.

had a fantastic day out with sister & my 2 young children, is expensive 2 get in but i think its def worth it, the rides which are there though are absoloutly scandalous! a tenner for a 2 minute ride on a carousol & charging an adult to go on a ride with child is ridiculous!! would like to see this changed next year but apart from that a lovely day

Just returned from a trip to the suffolk show lots to see and do for young and old food readily available and reasonably priced though if you visit the food tent you can actually get by on tasters !! Whilst some country shows are being lost the suffolk show remains well supported and i think being held during the whitsun school holiday makes it a real family day out and well worth the money.

On a freezing cold day the stall holders kept up their cheer and made it an enjoyable few hours to spend on good friday
