We go every year (I love the show) Last year we went for 2 and a half days. It was fantastic. The kids want to go for longer this year! We had the time to sit down and watch a lot of the shows that you just don't have time for in one day. We stayed at the formula one which was just walking distance away from the show. Novatel is even closer but a lot more expensive(My aim for this year) Have fun.
