Northstead Upper car park consists of hard standing and grassed overflow parking. Staff will be on hand on event nights to direct vehicles arriving for the show.

There are over 550 spaces available in this car park and overflow. Should this car park be full you will be directed by a series of temporary signage to the Burniston Road car park.

On leaving the car park Vehicles will be directed down Northstead Manor Drive to the junction with Burniston Road. At this point vehicles will be advised to turn left onto A165 for Whitby, Scalby and Burniston and right for A64 York, A170 Thirsk and A165 Bridlington.

It is also possible to access the A165 North direction towards Whitby via Ryndle Crescent onto Weydale Avenue.
