Due to roadworks causing severe delays on the M4 J1 – J3 (Chiswick roundabout to Heston) areas this may cause a knock on effect to traffic travelling to Farnborough from central London during show week. We recommend taking public transport instead and trains to Farnborough Main train station are fast and regular. Free shuttles to the show from the train station take just 15 mins. Information on train times and tickets can be found here. Traffic updates can be found here.
We would encourage all visitors who can to leave their cars at home and travel by public transport to the show in 2012. A number of special services have been arranged to make your travel to the show as convenient as possible. Click here to download and print a Farnbrough location map.
