Part of owning a caravan is having the freedom to take it to big national events and showing it off to other enthusiasts.
The UK has a blossoming Caravan scene which goes far beyond simply holidays in Cornwall and trips to the seaside. Caravanning is a truly Great British tradition and one that has enjoyed popularity here for decades. So you shouldn’t be surprised that there are a whole host of Caravan based events that take place each year.
Whether you’re interested in window shopping or simply catching some live music with the comfort of your own caravan just a short walk away, these four events are a must-visit if you want to make the most of the vibrant caravanning scene that Britain has to offer:
Motorhome & Caravan Show 2017

The NEC once more plays host to well over a hundred stands featuring the most well known Caravan and Motorhome manufacturers in the UK. Don’t expect to leave without your wallet feeling a little lighter as there are so many opportunities to pick up something here – whether big or small.
