Travel By Coach

(Click for See Coaches)


Coaches are one of the best – and greenest – ways to get to Glastonbury. In 2015, our official coach travel partner, National Express, will once again be running services from over 80 locations direct to the Festival’s own on-site coach station right by the Festival gates. Click here for their website and click here for the timetable.

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.

Private Hire Coaches dropping and picking up – NEW ARRANGEMENTS for 2015

Due to the limitations of the Festival site ALL private hire services for Public passengers must now use the Drop and Collect facility situated off the A 371 close to the festival. Do Not use the festival bus station which is reserved for GF Services and coach packages. Passes will be required to access the coach park all other buses will be turned away and sent to the drop and collect.

The festival runs a 24/7 shuttle service from the drop and 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 and the Monday for departures.

The shuttle buses take around 15 minutes to get to the festival and there is a constant service. On Monday make sure you allow time for the shuttle service when planning the trip to the Drop and collect for you coach pick up.

Coach Drivers- please do not drop on local roads! Passengers will then have miles to walk and are at risk from moving traffic. Please follow the Drop and collect Signage (DC) to the Drop and collect location.
