TRAVEL & ACCOMMODATION

hayfestival.org HAY FESTIVAL ALL WEATHER PARK & RIDE

CYCLE PARK A cycle park is available on the Festival site.

In order to reduce traffic and avoid congestion in our tiny town, we urge you to park at our Park & Ride car park. 
This is at Clyro Court (Baskerville Hall Hotel), HR3 5LE. A direct, free and frequent shuttle bus service will operate between Clyro Court and the Festival site, dropping you off right outside the entrance. These buses will run from before the first event until after the last event each day, starting on Friday 24 May, with a normal journey time of under ten minutes. The car park is suitable even if it rains, so you will not be left stuck in the mud. Parking costs £5 per day; no booking necessary – just turn up and pay on the day.
