Parking at Hay Festival

We look forward to welcoming you to the festival

Pre-book your festival parking now

Official Hay Festival All Weather Car Parking

In order to reduce traffic and avoid congestion in our tiny town, we urge you to book parking in our official car park. This is located at Clyro Court (Baskerville Hall Hotel), HR3 5LE. A direct, free and frequent shuttle bus service will operate between Clyro Court and the Festival site, dropping you off, right outside the entrance. These buses will run from before the first event and until after the last event, with a normal journey time of under ten minutes. The car park is also suitable even if it rains, so should the weather turn inclement, you will not be left stuck in the mud! Parking costs £6 per day, with discounts for multiple days. 

Disabled parking is available on the Festival site. Disabled parking spaces can be pre-booked by phone at the time of booking tickets.

Car charging

Hay Festival is offering electric car charging points at the Clyro Court Park & Ride site (HR3 5LE). There will be four 13 amp sockets available and, if your car requires it, you will need to bring your own adapter.

The chargers will be available on a first-come first-served basis. There is also one fast charger available in the local area at Drovers Cycle Hire – you can book for this online.

Park with care

Please park with consideration for local residents. We ask you not to park on the highway or grass verges.
