National Express runs coaches to Cheltenham that arrive at the Royal Well BusStation. These services are available from most major cities, including Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff and London. http://www.nationalexpress.com

Cheltenham Spa is the nearest train station. Check out the national rail website http://www.nationalrail.co.uk for times and prices or call 08457 48 49 50. There are direct services from London Paddington, Bristol, Birmingham, Swindon, Cardiff, Plymouth, Manchester, Leeds, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

By bus

Buses run regularly from the town centre, the bus station and the railway station direct to the racecourse. Route D runs from the train station passing through the city centre at Clarence St which is within walking distance of the bus station. The bus leaves every 10 minutes during the day and between 10 minutes and every hour in the evenings from Monday to Saturday. The services run hourly on Sundays.

Stagecoach is one of the main operators in Cheltenham and they have timetables on their website. http://www.stagecoachbus.com/cheltenham

By bike

Cycling is a cheap and environmentally friendly way to get to us. There are 52 secure bicycle parks next to the Centaur and the Best mate enclosure entrances to the racecourse.

By Taxi

These are not unreasonably priced if you are carrying a lot of baggage and with some friends. Find a taxi service. A taxi from the centre of Cheltenham to the Racecourse should cost less than £10.

ARRIVING BY CAR

Situated at junctions 10, 11 and 11a of the M5, Cheltenham lies within the main motorway network in easy reach of London, Bristol and Birmingham.

If traveling from the north on the M5 it is possible to leave from junction 9 and take the A435 south. The racecourse can also be reached from the East and West by the A40.

Please check with the AA Route Planner web site or set your sat-nav to the racecourse’s postcode: GL50 4SH.

The entrance to the racecourse is directly off the roundabout.

The campsite is located on ‘centre course’ and is a short walk to the Festival Village.

You will need to exchange your ticket for your wristband BEFORE arriving at the campsite.

On arrival, you will be allowed to drive on several perimeter roads around the camping areas, close to where you would like to pitch your tent. Cars must then be removed to the car park. Cars left on campsite roads or firebreaks will be removed by security.

Only Camping Pass holders can camp (live in vehicles see below). Day Camping Pass holders may camp overnight, but must leave by midday the following day.

Please note that in inclement weather (it does happen) arrangements may change in – follow guidelines by stewards on arrival.

If you are being dropped off by someone who is not attending the festival, enter by the box office on foot. Gates open at midday on the Friday. Please do not arrive before this time.

Arriving before Friday? You’ll have to find alternative accommodation I’m afraid.

The very latest you will be able to stay on site is midday on the Monday after the festival.

Day ticket holder camping is only available on the night that your ticket is valid for until midday the following day and NOT the night before the day your ticket is valid for.

When pitching your tent please allow at least 3 metres between you and the nearest tent.

Open fires are NOT allowed anywhere in the campsite.

Disposable/gas BBQs are allowed provided they are raised off the ground. Heat from BBQs damages the grass below meaning it is unable to grow back. We’d prefer it if you used Gas camping stoves.

Please make sure any cooking equipment is raised off the ground and in good working order.

CAMPING AREAS

The campsite is divided into 4 separate areas; an area for those with disabilities, a family area for those with er..children, a quiet for people who like an early night and a more chilled atmosphere and a general area for everyone else.

Sorry, no stereos or drums on the campsite and please consider your neighbours at all times.

Do not leave valuables, wallets or money in your tent, and look after your possessions over night (see information on lock-ups below). This is a family community so please get to know and watch out for your neighbours.

CAMPSITE FACILITIES

There are a number of facilities on the campsite including regularly serviced toilets (really, they are) showers (how posh) and water points. There will also be a café to get hot food and drinks and a shop on site for those last minute essentials. The security tent is staffed 24 hours, and campers should go there for information or help.

You can securely charge your mobile, camera or other gadgets for £1- £2 over the weekend (bring a charger if you can, though some are available). A locker service for valuables is also provided, but please don’t bring them unless absolutely essential!
