The Royal Welsh Show has been entertaining hundreds of thousands of people every year since 1904. It’s now grown into the largest agricultural fair and show in all of Europe.
The show takes place from July 19 to 22, 2010 in the small sleepy market town of Builth Wells, which is about 60 miles north of Cardiff in Wales. The event takes place on the banks of the scenic River Wye and is a great way to pay tribute to those who dedicate their lives to agriculture.
The four-day event features numerous attractions and exhibitions such as livestock competitions, hunting, agricultural heavy horses, dairy and beef cattle, sheep shearing, stunt carriage driving, tractors, machinery, and many other farming activities.
You can also do some shopping there as there are numerous trade and market stands as well as plenty of entertainment for the whole family. You don’t have to be a farmer to enjoy the show, that’s for sure.
There are events, competitions, and entertainment going on all of the time and the show offers free transportation from its car parks to the fair ground. There are several restaurants, bars, and lounges on site where you can taste local delicacies.
