Sidmouth Folk Week 2014 Travel Info

Festival Car Park at Bulverton

The Festival car park is situated just above the Bulverton Marquee. It allows direct access to the Marquee and avoids delays of finding parking in the town. Follow the signs from the A3052, down Bulverton Road, past the campsite. Use the one way system (following the ‘diversion’ signs), up Broadway, turn right into Bickwell Lane then left into Higher Greenway Lane. The route is along country lanes, so please drive very carefully, especially when wet. Exit signs will direct you round the remainder of the one-way system back onto the Bulverton Road just below the campsite. To access the town from the car park, walk past the Bulverton Marquee, down the hill to the bus stop just inside the Campsite entrance. Parking costs £5 per car per day for arrivals before 5.30pm (includes one free bus pass for the day) and £2 per car per day after 5.30pm, and is free to season ticket holders. The festival car park is NOT suitable for anyone with mobility issues because the walk to the bus stop is uneven and sloping.
