Catch the Glastonbury Express to the Festival

May 6, 2011

We’re very pleased to announce that, for the first time, there will be two charter trains coming direct to the Festival. Organised by Raileasy and First Group Support, the Glastonbury Express will travel from the north west and London direct to Frome Station, where free buses will be lined up and waiting to take passengers the short journey to the Festival site.

Return prices (including shuttle bus) are as follows:

Preston – £93
Bolton – £90
Manchester Picadilly – £87
Crewe – £70
Stoke-on-Trent – £60

Unfortunately the London train has had to be cancelled. Raileasy will be in touch with anyone who has bought a ticket. The Preston train is also now going to/from Frome rather than Cranmore. 

NB: Single tickets are also now available at 50% of the return ticket price

We’ve worked hard with Raileasy and First to push these prices as low as possible – and they include a £5 early bird discount which has been extended until June 15. Unfortunately, as the service is a private charter train, Raileasy are unable to offer railcard discounts or concession fares.

If you’re interested in coming to the Festival by train from other destinations, you can get the best fares via Raileasy’s Glastonbury travel page.

Of course, anyone travelling to the Festival by train will also receive a Green Traveller lanyard, entitling them to discounts on food and T-shirts, and exclusive access to solar showers and compost toilets.

All aboard!
