Parking and Access

The park and ride from Millbrook worked so well last year that we’re doing it again this year. Hamptonne car park will be used strictly for disabled and bicycle parking only.

There will be remote parking for 500 cars in the field next to the Glass Church at Millbrook, with a fleet of FREE 40-seater ‘Apple Buses' to and from Millbrook. The entrance to the Millbrook car park is Victoria Avenue side – the exit is Inner Road side, just past the Glass Church. Turn left onto Victoria Avenue from the Inner Road. Buses will be running 9.30am to 7.30pm on Saturday 9.30am to 5.30pm on Sunday. It’s fine to leave your car overnight to collect the following afternoon, should you need to.

Thank you for helping Jersey Heritage to significantly reduce the congestion in the quiet country lanes of St Lawrence over the course of the weekend.

Go Green!
Jersey Heritage would like to encourage those who can to bus, bike, car share, drop off or walk to the festival.
