Travel By Coach

(Click for See Coaches)


Coaches are one of the best – and greenest – ways to get to Glastonbury. In 2016, our official coach travel partner, National Express, will once again be running services from over 75 locations direct to the Festival’s own on-site coach station right by the Festival gates. Click here for their website and use the journey planner above for times and prices.

Of course an added bonus of travelling with National Express Coaches is that your journey is better for the environment. You generate at least FIVE TIMES less CO2 emissions going by coach, than driving in a car alone to the festival. Why not check out the Carbon Calculator below to see how much you could save.

Here are our top five reasons to get the Coach

1. It’s direct – you’ll get dropped off and picked up from the Festival site.
2. You won’t have to listen to the sat nav or try reading an upside map whilst driving.
3. You’ll be tired – after a weekend of late nights, you can let someone else do the driving.
4. The fun can begin as soon as you get on the coach – it will be full of your fellow Festival-goers.
5. It’s greener – everyone on a coach instead of separate cars means less of an impact on the environment.

The Festival Bus station is not available for private coaches at any time this year & you will need to use the Drop & Collect regardless of your arrival time.

The Festival runs a 24/7 shuttle service from the Drop & Collect location directly to Pedestrian Gate A. The service is set up to accommodate additional numbers  for this year’s Festival on the Wednesday for arrivals & on the Mondays for departures. The shuttle buses take around 15 mins to get to the Festival & there is a constant service. However on the peak times of Wednesday & Monday morning please do allow significantly longer for this journey.

If you wish to use this facility this year then please do contact us using the Contact Form  – selecting ‘Any other enquiries’ – with the following details before Tuesday 16th June 2015  in order to book your coach in. Minibuses of 17 seats & under do not need to be booked in, but still need to use the Drop & Collect point. We need accurate information to make sure that we have the correct number of buses working on the shuttle service.
