NATIONAL EXPRESS COACHES
Coaches are one of the best – and greenest – ways to get to Glastonbury. In 2020, 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.
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
NB: BOOKINGS FOR PRIVATE HIRE COACH TIME SLOTS ARE NOW CLOSED
Glastonbury Festival 2019 will have a dedicated area for Private Hire coaches of 15 seats and above. This will be inside Bronze Gate off the A361. Passengers can be dropped off on Wednesday 26th June 2019 from 05:00 to 18:00 and picked up on Monday 1st July from 02:00 to 18:00 (see details of how to apply for access and restrictions below – we have limited spaces and need to make sure that when you arrive there is space for you).
For minibuses less than 15 seats, please either use the Drop & Collect point or park in the Public car parks.
The location is situated just off the A361 to the west of the site and is adjacent to the car parks. From the Private Hire Coach drop off, passengers can walk to either Pedestrian Gate A or D to access the Festival site. Stewards will be on site to assist with directing coaches and passengers. Please make sure on arrival that you vacate the coach and remove all luggage to the pedestrian area so that your coach can leave quickly. Coach space is limited so arrivals will be timed carefully – we do not want coaches turning up early as they will be refused access. It is important that both passengers and coaches turn up together and load quickly.
There is a charge of £120 for the use of this facility (PH CP) which includes the arrival and departure of your coach. You will be sent payment details when you receive your provisional booking. This price reflects the charges paid by other coach operators and other forms of transport used to get to the Festival. FAILURE TO BOOK WILL RESULT IN FAILURE TO BE ALLOWED ACCESS.
When your booking has been confirmed, passes will be sent to the lead booker with all the relevant information regarding routes and access.
If you wish to use the Private Hire Coach Park (PH CP) in 2019 then please do get in touch. Copy and paste the list below into an email, fill in ALL the details and send to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not send an incomplete email – ALL details are needed before a booking can be considered.

THERE IS NO SPACE FOR COACHES TO TAKE BREAKS in the Private Hire Coach Park. If drivers need a break they will need to find a local facility away from the Festival site – stewards will be able to direct the driver.
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 signs to Bronze Gate off the A361.
