Tips for those travelling home by train on Monday


July 1, 2019

David Bowie arrived at Glastonbury by train in 1971, and record numbers did the same for this year’s Festival (thanks for being green travellers!). That means Castle Cary will be very busy at peak times on Monday morning. Here are some useful tips for those travelling by train…

– Get to the station as early as possible – the first free shuttle bus to Castle Cary leaves the Festival Bus & Coach Station at 4am (and the first train departs at 4.53am)

– Trains departing Castle Cary between 9am and 3pm will be the busiest

– Taxis will not get you to the station quicker, as shuttle buses are prioritised – and do not try to walk (the roads around the farm are not designed for pedestrians)

– At peak times, there is very likely to queueing at the station and standing on trains – please bring water and snacks

– Other travel options include National Express and See Tickets coaches – get info on times and tickets from the Travel Information Cabin by Gate A

– Or, if you’re interested in Car Sharing, offer a lift or find one, at GoCarShare’s stall at the William’s Green Info Point

– For train times, information and tickets visit GWR’s Glastonbury page

– Please be patient with stewards and each other – we’ll try to get you home as quickly as possible
