By car: The showground is well connected by road. Just set your Satnav for BA4 6QN. The showground venue benefits from a huge, security-patrolled car park. You can either book in advance for Fast Track entry into the car park here or pay in the normal way at the car park entrance.
By train: The nearest train station is Castle Cary, with services from Bristol and London. See Trainline for rail bookings.
Shuttle buses will run from here to the venue both before and after the event. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO WALK TO THE EVENT FROM THE TRAIN STATION – FULL INFO HERE.
By coach: Do not leave it to the last-minute before you book a coach place, as it’s possible that you may not be able to find an operator with spaces available. Book in advance as much as possible to avoid disappointment and remember that all coaches are of limited availability and are on a demand basis only – no demand, no coach. View pickup points.
By foot: Please do not attempt to walk to the site along the very busy local main roads. There are no pavements and traffic moves at very high speeds.
Castle Cary station is situated two miles from Westfest. Please do not attempt to walk to the event as there are no footpaths on the road and it is not safe to walk along. In 2018, someone was killed walking on the roads for Westfest.
Westfest provides a shuttle bus service that takes you directly to the event which costs £5 return which must be paid by cash. This service starts at 16:30 on the day of Westfest and runs through to the last train – please do not arrive earlier than 16:30. Please note that there is no ATM at the station and you will need to bring £5 with you for your return shuttle bus fare.
The shuttle service resumes at 08:00 following Westfest, in time for the first train of the day. People travelling on the return service will be held at the showground until the service resumes. Again, please do not attempt to walk to the station due to the danger of the roads.
Please be sure that you have the correct train ticket for travel to and from Castle Cary station. Revenue protection teams will be present on both Saturday evening and Sunday morning checking that people have their correct train tickets and will issue fines to people who do not have valid tickets for travel on the trains.
