Parking at Hay Festival

Please refrain from
parking on the roads
in Hay. We also ask you not to park on the highways or grass verges around Hay.

Thank you.

All Festival car parks will be in operation on Sunday 1 June, including the charity car parks on either side of the festival site.

These open at 8am (Macmillan Charity Car Park) and 9.30am (car park across the Brecon Road from the site).

Both our wet weather car parks will also be open as below.


Wet weather parking will be in full operation on Sunday 1 June at both Baskerville Hall in Clyro and Gwernyfed School car parks.


The hardstanding car park at Baskerville Hall Hotel in Clyro will open at 8.30am and is signposted on the approach from the Hereford direction. There will be extra shuttle buses running from Clyro to the festival site via Glasbury, avoiding the congestion in the town. Journey time is approximately 15 minutes.

Baskerville Hall Hotel is on the A438 at Clyro – HR3 5LE, 150 yards west of the Texaco garage. The shuttle bus stop is by the main gate by the road.


The hardstanding car park at Gwernyfed High School will open at 8.30am and is signposted on the approach from the Brecon direction. There will also be shuttle buses in operation to bring you to the festival site. Journey time is approximately 15 minutes.

Gwernyfed High School is in Three Cocks off the A438 – LD3 0SG.


In case of traffic congestion, please allow an extra hour to reach the festival site in good time for your event(s). All events on Sunday 1 June will start 15 minutes later than advertised.


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

Safe journey. Thank you for coming. We look forward to welcoming you to the festival.
