By Car

Escot is just off the A30, between Exeter and Honiton. Those taking cars should exit the A30 at Daisymount (eastbound) and at Iron Bridge (westbound) and follow the Blue Route, which is marked with AA signs. Those being dropped off at the site should follow the AA signs for the Red Route.

Routing stickers (car park ticket) must be clearly put in the windscreen on approach to the festival site. These will be used to direct cars on to the site and the correct parking area.

Please try and car share where possible.

By Coach

National Express run coaches from all over the country to Exeter's Paris Street Bus Station. Please visit to explore coach connections from other destinations.

By Train

There are more trains to Exeter St David's from London Paddington than there are from London Waterloo. Furthermore, these take approximately two and a half hours, an hour less than Waterloo. Paddington can be reached very easily using London Underground's Bakerloo line.

Festival Buses

Stagecoach run festival buses to and from Exeter. The buses will be clearly marked BEAUTIFUL DAYS which will depart from Exeter St David's Train Station and then pick-up at Paris Street Bus Station on the way to Escot Park.

The buses go to the festival on Friday and then back to Exeter on Sunday night and Monday morning.

Buses leave from Exeter St David's Station via the Paris Street Bus Station at 10am, noon, 1pm and 3pm on Friday.

Buses leave Escot Park and return to Exeter St David's Station via the Paris Street Bus Station at 11.30pm and 1am on Sunday and 1am, 9am, 10am, 11am and noon on Monday.

Extra buses will run as needed.

In 2008 adult single tickets were priced at £4, under-16s single ticket were £3 and under-fives were free.

Tickets cannot be booked in advance, either purchase a one-way or same day return ticket when boarding, journey time is about half an hour.

By Plane

If arriving at Exeter Airport the best bet is to take a taxi to Escot Park, as there are no scheduled festival buses. A taxi should take about 10 minutes, the taxi driver needs to follow the AA Signs and then the correct (RED) route for dropping off festival goers.

Please note that gates open at 9am - there is no entry on Thursday.
