Travel & Accommodation

Avoid car park charges and go eco friendly with the 'Big Green Coach' cheap service which will be specialising in return journeys from certain locations, including, Brentwood, Cambridge, Chelmsford, Dartfood (Bluewater), Hemel Hempstead, High Wycombe, Letchworth, London (Croydon), London (Victoria Coach Station), Luton, Milton Keynes, Northampton, Romford, Stevenage and Watford. I know nobody wants the hassle of infuriating traffic and a lengthy journey home after the event, so why not shack up in a local lush hotel and rest those feet! A few hotels I recommend include, Beales Hotel from £108 - which is conveniently a 30 minute bus ride from the festival, Novotel Stevenage from £91- which is a 15 minute train duration to Hatfield, or you could take a more socialable alternative an check in at the Generator Hostel from £134 and have the delight of a scrumptious breakfast included in the package! This is not too far from Kings Cross Station and the location enables you to have direct access to Hatfield.
