Travel By Coach

(Click for See Coaches)


Coaches are one of the best – and greenest – ways to get to Glastonbury. In 2024, our official coach travel partner, National Express, will once again be running services from over 100 locations direct to the Festival’s own on-site coach station at Worthy Farm.

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. It’s great value – with more departure locations in 2024.
3. You can let someone else do the driving – stress-free on the way there, and a godsend on the way back.
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 – by travelling by coach emits less CO2 per passenger km than train travel, or by travelling alone, and removes loads of congestion off the roads.

Top tip: print a spare copy of your return coach ticket, and book it into one of the free property lockups when you arrive. If you lose your phone or ticket, or your phone battery is dead, you can then collect your ticket from the property lockup and get home! If you don’t need the spare ticket, there’s no need to collect it from the property lockup.


As part of the Festival’s continued commitment to green travel, over 22,000 coach + ticket packages for Glastonbury 2023 were sold in advance of general sale, rewarding green travellers with the chance to be the first to secure their tickets.

BPEC Coaches

For travellers coming from Brighton or London you can also purchase a coach ticket with registered charity Brighton Peace and Environment Centre. BPEC are a small, volunteer led charity that has been involved with Glastonbury Festival since the 1980s. All profits go to help fund their work to promote peace, equality and the environment. Coaches are available on Wednesday and for workers with crew tickets there are also seats available on Tuesday from Brighton. For more information and to purchase your ticket please click here.

Private Hire Coaches dropping and picking up

The 2024 Festival will have a dedicated area for hired coaches of 15 seats and above to drop off and pick up Festival-goers. The Private Hire Coach Park (PHCP) is situated just off the A361 at Bronze Gate, adjacent to the car parks, where passengers can walk to either Pedestrian Gate A or D. Stewards will be on site to assist with directing coaches and passengers.

There is a charge of £160 for the use of the PHCP facility which includes both the arrival and departure of your coach. This price reflects the charges paid by other coach operators and other forms of transport used to get to the Festival. You will be sent details for payment once you have made a provisional booking.

This facility will be open for drop offs on Wednesday 26th June between 05:00 and 18:00, and open for pick ups on Monday 1st July between 02:00 and 18:00. There is limited space at the coach park and we need to ensure you are booked in to arrive. Please see below for details of how to apply for access and restrictions.

For minibuses with less than 15 seats, please either use the Drop and Collect point or park in the Public car parks (public parking passes cost £55 in advance).


If you wish to use the Private Hire Coach Park in 2024, please get in touch! We will need all of the following details sent to:

Wednesday 26th June 2024 – preferred time of arrival:
Monday 1st July 2024 – preferred time of departure:
Lead Booker Name:
Email address:
Postal Address:
Post Code:
Contact Number:
Contact number -onsite (if different):
Name of Coach Company:
Size of vehicle (number of seats):

Vehicle Registration Number:

Once your booking has been confirmed, the lead booker will be sent all the relevant information regarding routes and access.

Please make sure that you request a suitable booking time, as we cannot guarantee space for coaches arriving early/late to their allocated timeslot.

On arrival, please make sure that you vacate the coach and remove all luggage to the Pedestrian area so that your coach can leave quickly. On your departure, it is important that both passengers and coaches turn up together for their allocated timeslot to ensure an on-schedule departure. Please take no longer than 20 minutes to load/unload.

THERE IS NO SPACE FOR COACHES TO TAKE BREAKS in the Private Hire Coach Park. Any drivers that need a break will need to find a local facility away from the Festival site, and 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.
