Visit the Farnborough Airshow’s official website to book your tickets for Public Days.
With Farnborough being conveniently located just outside of London, it won’t take much of your time or effort to reach. Here’s how you could travel by different modes of transportation.
The Farnborough International Airshow is in close proximity to four stations- Farnborough Main, Farnborough North, North Camp, and Aldershot. Free shuttle buses run to and from Farnborough Main, North Camp, and Aldershot stations, between 07:00 hrs and 19:00 hrs.
Pro-Tip: You could also travel to the Farnborough International Airshow from Gatwick Airport by rail. Take the First Great Western service to North Camp Station, and you’d be at the show venue in approximately 50 minutes.
If you’d like to travel by coach, take advantage of the low-level bus service, which is accessible from specific coach parks, and available at regular intervals all through the day, during the run of the show. You could also purchase your tickets online.
Check outside the visitor entrance at Gate B. That’s exactly where the bike racks will be located.
Thinking of flying to the UK for the Farnborough International Airshow? Both Heathrow and Gatwick airports are within 1hr 30 minutes driving distance of the show venue. However, if you plan to fly by helicopter, do refer to the Helicopters Operators Guide beforehand.
