First time staying in worthy view and leaving a review to help people make an informed decision about staying in Worthy View.
Positives Pre erected tent. Takes the stress away about finding a camping space. No need to arrive early and que Weds early hours. We arrived Weds but on reflection I would have arrived a day later on Thursday.
High quality tents. Made from thick canvas and a good amount of space. We stayed in a 2 man scout tent and had enough room to fit 2 single air beds and suitcase and bags inside the sleeping compartment. The porch had enough room to keep some camping gear and a large cool box. The tent was better then a standard tent at keeping cool, however in the sun of 2019 it was still baking 8am on Saturday morning
Car park is close, 10 minute walk max. Found it easy to make multiple trips.
Showers were nice and warm and did really help to freshen up. The showers where in private cubical's.
Toilets. There were some flushable toilets which were much nicer to use when you needed a number 2. No back ups like Portaloo's or stench of longdrops. I must stipulate that there was a mixture of portaloos and flushable toilets at worthy view.
Queuing. At peak times around 8am onwards, there was ques for toilets and showers. You could expect to wait around an hour for a shower the peak was around 10.30 ish. Mens ques for showers where smaller then the ladies. I found the queuing for toilets more hassle, as sometimes you cant really wait 20 minutes.
The walking. We stayed right at the back of A which meant we were furthest away from the gate. We had to walk about 600ms to get to the start of the hill. Worthy View is very far away from the Pyramid stage, except a long walk. However It is close to the Park and Shangri La.
The hill. The first couple of days it wasn't too bad, however by Friday it just became an absolute mission to get up. Imagine walking around the site for miles and then having to traverse a steep hill. It was not fun, especially in the heat. Here is a video I made of the hill
I would not stay in Worthy View again. Im a fit 34 year old and found the distant from the Pyramid stage and the hill too much of a negative. It may have been intensified by the heat of 2019.
