Why take the train?

Getting the train to Glastonbury Festival is much easier and far simpler than driving. Everyone in your group can get straight into the festival atmosphere with fellow Glasto-goers – anything can happen from spoken word poetry and impromptu rap battles to live performances. Plus get a 1/3 off train tickets with GroupSave when 3 to 9 people travel together.

Once on board your train, finalise those last minute-plans with our free Wi-Fi and charge your phone as you whizz past the traffic.

When you arrive at Castle Cary – the nearest station to Worthy Farm – you’ll be met with a free shuttle bus to the festival. You’ll get dropped off directly outside Pedestrian Gate A, so no long walks from the car parks. Shuttle bus timetables will be added to the Glastonbury site closer to the time.

Queuing systems will be in place at Paddington and Castle Cary to help make both your journeys pleasant and as smooth as possible.

Go green

Give yourself a pat on the back for going green. The average train journey produces a whopping 57-58% less carbon dioxide than driving, making it the eco-friendly way to arrive.

As well as cutting down on CO2, you can help the farm by only using the toilets provided and not going on the land; putting litter in the designated recycling and rubbish bins; bringing reusable water bottles and filling up from the 120 water points; and clearing up your campsite and taking everything home.

What station facilities are there at Castle Cary?

There are no facilities at Castle Cary so prepare before arrival. With no left luggage facilities, if you want to store anything during the festival you’ll need to use the property lock-ups by Pedestrian Gate A. When you leave, make sure you’ve got enough time to collect any stored items. There’s also no parking at Castle Cary station during the festival, but shuttle buses will take you to Worthy Farm.

When are the shuttle buses from/to the station?

The festival will advertise the shuttle bus timetable closer to the festival dates, so you can make a more detailed plan to get home.

How do I plan my return journey?

If you’re travelling back on Monday, leave plenty of time to get onto the shuttle bus and load your luggage. Check what type of ticket you have before heading to the station, as some tickets can only be used on certain trains.
