2021 will be another enforced fallow year for Glastonbury and the festival will now return in June 2022.
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.
The shuttle operates from Wednesday to Monday (there is no service during the night when trains aren’t running). The festival will advertise the shuttle bus timetable closer to the festival dates, so you can make a more detailed plan to get home.
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. If you have an eTicket, ensure your mobile device is charged for the return journey.
