Visiting by coach is super easy! Just follow the signs for the Longforth Car Park, Wellington, TA21 8RQ to drop off and it's a level walk from the coach stop to the festival. Coaches are permitted to park here.
We know that the car parks get very busy so if there is a bus service near you we would advise trying it. You can plan your journey here
We have listened to the feedback from our visitors and developed our Visitor Charter - this is what we are commmitting to deliver for you.
There is a link to the nearest car parks here. There is also a customers car park at Waitrose but this often gets very crowded.
