Royal Norfolk Show Buses: All summed up

As it did for Radio 1's Big Weekend, Ipswich heritage liveried
32479 will pay a visit to Norwich for this year's Norfolk Show.
As I did with the bus details for Radio 1's Big Weekend in May, I have put together a post to help you get to the right places with your cameras for the Royal Norfolk Show. The Royal Norfolk Show is the largest event of its kind in the country, and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors across the two days.The event takes place this year on Wednesday 1st and Thursday 2nd July.

This year, First will again be operating their special service 100. It is confirmed that, should all goes to plan, both of First Eastern Counties' heritage Routemasters and heritage liveried Ipswich based Transbus AL400 bodied Volvo B7TL 32479 AU53HJV will be drafted into Norwich to help out. Buses will depart from Thorpe Road, by the rail station, up to every twenty minutes from 08:00. Buses will also call at St Stephens Street en-route, with additional shuttles from there to provide a ten minute frequency from the City Centre. 

Norwich Bus Updates have produced this map for buses to the
Norfolk Show this year.
Konectbus are introducing a new service for 2015, the 400. Operating from Harford Park and Ride, the 400 will give visitors the opportunity to park away from the Showground. Buses will run up to every twenty minutes. Also running from Harford Park and Ride is the 10 to the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital, which usually departs from Costessey Park and Ride - closed over the two days due to the heavy traffic around the site. As a result of this, you may be able to catch three services at once on your camera from Harford Park and Ride site! The usual shuttles on the 4 from Norwich will run also at a thirty minute frequency, achieved by employing additional buses between Norwich and the Norfolk Showground alongside the buses operating the full length of the route.

An abundance of coaches transporting the local schools always descends on the Norfolk Showground on the day. The coach park can be accessed via the main car park gate further along the old Dereham Road into Easton Village. Further to this, Anglianbus will once again be running their shuttle service from City Collge, which is expected to again be operated by a Mercedes Benz Citaro on loan from sister company Konectbus.
