Traveling by public transport reduces pollution and allows you to beat the queues. Please seriously consider leaving your car at home. If you don't fancy the train or coach you can always contact others traveling to the festival on the car-sharing website www.liftshare.com
or on our website message boards here.
If you do have to use your car GlobalGathering has put in place a tried and tested traffic routing for people arriving by car to avoid the traffic in Stratford-Upon-Avon town centre. Congestion can be very bad on Friday evenings and during Saturday from midday to late evening. Please follow the Global Gathering route signage at all times! There are now three entrances to the site and if one entrance is congested, traffic will be diverted to alternative entrances. The traffic team may vary routes in order to help you avoid the worst congestion - so you must follow the signs. They will get you to the event site quicker. To view the directions click here
There is plenty of space to park your car at the festival site. Don't park on verges, in gateways or private roads or you will be towed away by the police. Camping and campfires are not allowed in the car parks. In order to deter thieves it is advisable to leave your glove compartment open and empty, and lock all bags etc in your boot.
In addition a 24hr taxi rank will be provided in the main entrance car park for customers lucky enough to live closer to the event.
