Help with your shopping

Take advantage of the Plant Crèche and Shop & Drop, run by Maggie’s Southampton to look after your shopping during your visit. There will be a cash point at the fair, and please do bring a bag (or two) to minimise the need for new ones. A NEW shuttle bus will be ready to help you back to your car. 

Food and drink

 Build a picnic from the independent Street Food vendors and delicious artisan food and drink from the BBC Good Food Market, then wash it down with a tipple from one of the three alfresco bars. Or, you can head into Beaulieu for a sit-down meal at the Brabazon restaurant.
