Festival Bus Service

Free shuttle bus service

There’s a free shuttle bus from Canterbury Bus Station (near Canterbury East railway station). The shuttle bus stops at E4 which is next to the stop for the New Dover Road park and ride service. – look for the CAMRA signs and the queue of thirsty drinkers!

The shuttle bus starts 15 minutes before each session and runs every 15-30 minutes between the Bus Station and the Festival.

The last shuttle bus leaves half an hour after closing time but remember it can only hold a few dozen people!
