Our Local Area
The West Midlands Showground is situated in the heart of Shrewsbury, a historic market town on the banks of the River Severn. The town is easily accessible from the west via the M54 leading to the A5 and is situated off the B5067 Berwick Road. The showground is a short walk from Shrewsbury Train Station and the town’s Bus Station.
We have ample parking for more than 2,000 cars when we are hosting events. The large site also allows for cars and vehicles to be parked next to tents and motorhomes if you are camping with us.
We are a rural showground so our green spaces can be difficult for wheelchairs following bad weather, however our green areas are surrounded by roadways which can be used by wheelchair users.
We also have disabled toilets on site and during large events hosted by the agricultural society motorised scooters are available to hire.
We do not have a cash machine on the showground but there are plenty in Shrewsbury, which is just a few minutes walk away.
The site has a main building with a pavilion and a balcony overlooking the main showground ring, stands and stalls.
We also have our Berwick Clubhouse which can be hired for events. The clubhouse is a covered bar area and this can be used by event organisers hiring the site or mobile bars can be used if preferred.
The Berwick Clubhouse is also often used for our Sunday car boot sales in bad weather.
Our car boot sales run every Sunday from April to October. For sellers (£5 for a table) the Car Boot opens at 7am. For buyers entry will be from 7.30am.
Great location just an easy 15 minute walk into town. Own little garden with a shelter and fire pit. Washing and toilet block and pot wash point close by. Very friendly staff. Very peaceful, calm and relaxing even though it is a big site. We had a great stay.
Great having indoor area (with heater) and two outside options (no cover or under cover). Site was enormous so plenty of room for kids to kick a ball and run about. Good fun swimming, canoeing and fishing in the River Severn. Site very secure and staff all very helpful. Shrewsbury and the surrounding area is a great location with so much to see and do. We will be back.
We had a great camping weekend and thank you for the warm & helpful welcome when we arrived. Facilities were fine, nice powerful showers and ideally situated, being a peaceful site, but still close to the town. We will certainly be returning and have recommended the site to friends. "What a find" Thanks again!
