Lake District

Same as Neil, I only go because it's close and I get free tickets, I think it's £20 or £25 to get in, that's the same as the great Yorkshire show and not even a 1/4 of the size. There's plenty of hounds to look at.

Lowther Show 2017 - admission this year £16 under 15's free


The Hound Show is one of the best in the North of England - Last year there were 40 packs entered and over 500 hounds over the two days - Foxhounds (Fell, Hill, Welsh & Studbook) on the Saturday, Hare Hounds (Beagles & Harriers on Sunday) This year there are prizes for the best hound from a Scottish pack in the Hillhound & Studbook Foxhound Classes and prizes in the Studbook classes for the best Old English Hound


Throughout the weekend there are hound displays including pure bred Otterhounds, Bassets, Fell, Welsh, Bloodhounds


Saturday there is a junior handlers competition for foxhounds (Last year there were nearly 50 kids of all ages showing all types of foxhounds - there is the hunt singing competition, hunting trade stands and the fell pack merchandise along with a terrific hunting museum display.


Sunday there is the Fell Pack amateur judging competition - Next year there is a possibility of a Bloodhound show


Last year in Horse & Hound Frank Houghton-Brown said 'If Peterborough Royal Foxhound Show is the 'Festival of Hunting', then Lowther is the 'Festival of Hounds'. This two day show in the beautiful Cumbrian setting of Lowther Estate has become a focal point for hunters who celebrate venery & foot hunting
