Getting to Glastonbury

Glastonbury Glastonbury can be hard to get to but its worth it when you arrive. It does not matter what method of transport you use, the final leg of the journey will be by bus, taxi, car, bicycle or on foot. On this page we have tried to list the various options with links to timetables and booking faciities. Due to the time needed to get to Glastonbury we do not recommend attempting a day trip from London - you would need to be based in either Bristol or Bath to make a day-trip feasible and enjoyable.

Essential from Castle Cary Railway station and if there are more than two of you can sometimes be cheaper than using the local buses. Also as the buses stop running early taxis are a useful method of transport for short local journeys.
