With a weekend of fun filled late nights with little sleep, the train is the perfect traffic and hassle free way to travel to and from the festival! The atmosphere on the way there is always lively and our quiet coaches offer a place to recover and relax on your way home. With the option to choose your seats, groups of friends can travel together no matter how big the party.
There are only a limited number of advanced tickets available for each journey so log on to crosscountrytains.co.uk early and don't miss out!
