There's a restaurant and bar up there.

 

Last time we were there the bar only sold beer in cans , nothing on draught. That was a few years ago. 

Remember the spare groundsheet for the outer part of the tent ,   Good to keep shoes and wellies on.

Hi guys, How far is the walk to the main site?

My friends who aren’t staying at worthy view are saying it’s miles away, is this the case ?

if you could give me some examples of how far it is to certain places this would be appreciated

A sedate amble down the hill to strumerville and the stone circle/sacred space.

Glastonbury is huge WV is just at one end of it so it depends on where you are going to. Park is close, John Peel tent is literally miles away.

Biggest advantage of WV is how close your car is (if you’re driving). So can take extra food/drink and clothes and just leave in car if not needed. Makes planning much easier. 

Queues for hot drinks in the morning can be very long so would recommend a stove to heat water (and cook breakfast!) And chairs / inflatables to chill outside tent ️

What’s the security like at worthy view? Reading some twitter posts it suggests it’s a nightmare. Is this the case? Do they search all your luggage for drugs? Will you get searched everytime going in and out of the camp?

Thank you

Security is decent. I was last there in 2016 and there was a quick luggage search on the way in. It’s actually quiet compared with even the more sedate camping fields. Wasn’t searched after that, just a check that you have the WV wristband. Everything will be explained in the e mail you get with your tent number.

Agree with this both times we've been searched when first arrived but only a cursory search . After that wristband checked on way into main site and way back to wv of a night .

On the Friday morning it was a nightmare and the queues to get into the site were massive - went right up to the top of the hill. But i think they quickly realised it was impossible to search everyone's bag as they went into the site so relaxed this considerably.

They were still doing bag searches, and randomly more comprehensive searches (I had one of these, just meant properly checking your waist band and footwear for anything extra-curricular) but you would be unlucky to get one of those. I'd say if you do have anything you want to, er, take in then put in down your pants while you walk though the gate......

Yeah this was stupid and quickly resolved after a few complaints. Everyone was properly searched entering WV just like the main site and then they were doing the same thing when going into the main site when you're stuff has already been searched. Lik mentioned above, this was quickly sorted and by late Friday/Sat morning you could go straight in and out with the usual wrist band check.

If I have friends who are getting the bus up-to Glastonbury and staying in the main part... Would I be to take items for them and they can collect from the worthy view car park as we’re staying in WV? 

Thankyou

Don’t think so, you would have to take the stuff down the hill to the main site through the gate and have them collect it from there. You park the car then pass into the WV site. There is no direct route from the WV car park to the main site.
