Can you visit worthy farm during the year?

Recommended Posts

And how do you go about doing so, do you need to contact anybody etc. as it's obviously private land?

 

My parents are in Glastonbury village in a couple of months, and would like to take the opportunity to see where their daughter has been disappearing to every june all these years... They'd literally just want a wander round (probably look at the pyramid stage frame and the stone circle)..... is this even possible?

 

All help massively appreciated :)

Thank you! Do you have to report to an office or tell them you're arriving in advance? They'd massively hate to do something to p*ss anyone off!

 

No reporting needed - when we have been we just walked onto the farm on the public paths.

As long as you respect it being a working farm there should be no problems.

Does anyone know when it closes to the public ready for the festival? May pop down this week for a day out!

I visited the farm in September (see my profile pic!), however when I tried to visit in May last year they told me that access wouldn't be permitted.

Definitely contact the office to check before you go, especially in the next few months.

We spent a whole day there, it's a lovely place to visit and a really good walk. We had an overweight dog with us and I don't think she's ever walked so far!

a map of the public footpaths in and around the farm.

I emailed them and received a reply saying that we could walk anywhere as long as we complied with the countryside code, shutting gates etc and not upsetting the animals etc.

We had a great day, also with a dog, and it looks so different without the festival but still with a few teasers that remind you as you walk around.  Lovely place, lovely people

We have just returned home to Salisbury having visited the farm TODAY! We did email the festival office first.

We drove into Mary's gate, parked the car and walked straight down the lane. Lots of guys around busy on site with diggers etc but they waved and we felt free to walk anywhere and take pictures. We sat for a while at stone circle...very peaceful.

Great fun trying to work out where everything normally is at the festival. Some bits easy and some not!! We didn't see a single cow!

The grass is about six inches high but the ground is very, very wet. Needs to dry out a lot.

Was a wonderful morning and reminded us just how much walking you have to do!!!

We really must make the effort to contact the farm and visit out-of-season one day, as we only live about an hour away and enjoy weekend trips to Somerset.  However, on our way back from Glastonbury town today we drove via the Worthy Farm area and stopped to take a quick photo of the site from the south west of the site.  We could just see the cows in the yard.  Really looking forward to the festival now, haven't been since the muddy year of 2007 and I'll be volunteering for the first time this year.

Hello folks. Contemplating a trip down to Glastonbury area in the coming weeks and thinking it would be nice to have a wander around the site. Has anyone done this in recent years? Is the info above still accurate and the farm owners are quite happy about it as long as you respect the farm and keep to the countryside code? Looking at walking something resembling the below. Cheers.

No.

For the past few months, the Festival have asked, repeatedly, that nobody visits for obvious reasons.
