TRAVEL INFORMATION

 

We encourage festival-goers to use public transport or car sharing if possible.

 

CYCLE TO WOOD:

Cycle to wood and receive a free pint or soft drink at the bar!

Cycle parking will be provided this year.

 

 

CAR SHARING:

www.liftshare.co.uk : Simply head to the wesbite, run a search on your journey and find others going your way. Or, offer a lift so others can find you!

 

BUS TRAVEL:

Braziers Park is served by the X39/X40 Thames Travel service connecting to Oxford, Wallingford and Reading. The Braziers Lane stop is a request stop so ask the driver, and it’s a 5 minute walk to the festival site from the stop. Take care if crossing the busy A4074. You should be able to see the yellow AA signs and other Wood signage.

 

TRAIN:

It’s best to go to Reading station and then catch the X39/X40 bus to Braziers Park, as these buses run from just outside the station.  Goring & Streatley Station is around 40-60 minutes walk with steep hills and no buses- occasionally taxis.

 

To catch a bus from Reading railway station, leave the station at the main entrance, cross the road opposite and make your way to bus stop EB. The X39 takes approximately 25 minutes. The X40 turns off for a loop of Woodcote before rejoining the X39 route, so takes 5-10 minutes longer.

 

 

CAR PARKING:

£10. The charge varies depending on vehicle occupancy, as part of our environmental commitment.

If the vehicle has one occupant you will have to pay a further £5; if it has 3 or more, we will refund £5.
