Essential Surrey offer

Essential Surrey readers can receive 50% off this year's Hickstead shows 


The All England Jumping Course at Hickstead is to showjumping what Wembley is to football or Wimbledon is to tennis. Founded by Sussex businessman Douglas Bunn back in 1960, Hickstead has grown into one of the world’s premiere showgrounds, attracting many of the best horses and riders to its two summer events: the Al Shira’aa Hickstead Derby Meeting (21-24 June) and the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ of Great Britain at the BHS Royal International Horse Show (25-29 July).

Hickstead’s international horse shows feature everything from the skill and power of top showjumpers clearing vast fences, stunningly beautiful show horses and ponies putting in foot-perfect performances, and the speed and exhilaration of the scurry drivers and event riders galloping around the famous International Arena. 

With eight rings of equestrian action, Hickstead is a Mecca for any horse lover – but there’s lots on offer for everyone. With hundreds of stands in the Charles Owen Shopping Village, there is plenty to tempt visitors away from the thrilling sporting action. As well as stands selling equestrian tack and clothing, you can browse some of the leading country fashion brands or check out the fabulous range of footwear, gifts and homeware.

For foodies, Hickstead has plenty to tantalise and tempt your taste buds. Explore some of the local delicacies with our range of delicious food stands and bars, or bring your own picnic and find the perfect ringside spot to enjoy the glorious British countryside. For a truly glamorous day, choose one of the Hospitality options, from the Members’ Restaurant to Private Boxes, offering the perfect way to spend the day with customers, family or friends. Each with their own balcony, you won’t get a better view of the action.

The new Family Zone includes fairground rides and stalls, plus fun and games from popular local children’s entertainer Tomfoolery. Under fives go free, with discounts available for children, pensioners and families.

Book here using the code ESC18. 50% discount excludes Sunday 24 June and car parking. A booking fee of £2.50 will be applied.
