Unfortunately we cannot offer a pick-up service but Glastonbury Festival provides a shuttle bus from Castle Cary Station to the Festival Bus Station at Red Gate.

See details below re arriving by coach.

The entrance to Glastotel is approximately a 20 minute walk from the  Red Gate Festival Bus station.

There is a taxi rank approximately 5 minutes walk from the bus station (taxis are also unable to pick-up from the festival bus station or on the road outside).

PLEASE USE POSTCODE BA6 8ND FOR ANY TAXI PICK UP & DROP OFFS.

We would strongly advise you to pre-book any taxi that you require for your arrival and, particularly, your departure.

Obviously taxis get booked up quickly and are in significant demand, so ordering one during the festival is nearly impossible.

We suggest googling ‘Glastonbury taxi’ so that you can see the full list as kindly note we’re unable to provide any taxi contacts.
