Going to V? Why not take the train?

Posted on

It’s a two day festival that’s set to bring a stellar line-up to Essex and Birmingham.

But with thousands of music lovers heading to V Festival (20-22 Aug 2011) to catch big-name acts like Eminem and Rihanna, car-driving festival-goers could find themselves killing time on the motorway when they should be pitching a tent or making their way to the main stage.

Swapping the car for the train could be the easiest – as well as the quickest and cheapest – way to get to V Festival.

Just take the train to Chelmsford and then board a shuttle bus to Hylands Park (£5 return) or take a train to Stafford and then board a shuttle bus to Weston Park (£8 return).

As V is an accredited green festival, festival-goers who arrive by train and shuttle bus can expect to be dropped-off within easy reach of the main entrance and camping grounds, while drivers will face a long trek from the car park to the campsite.

Festival goers can kick-off the V festivities early by taking trains to nearby London or Birmingham, and enjoying some fun in those cities before heading to V.

Taking the train to V could even leave you with more cash to spend on enjoying yourself, as you could get to V save money as well as time and petrol with cheap train fares.

Plus, you won’t have to wipe the car clean of muddy wellie prints.

So, if you’re off to V to catch Calvin Harris, Dizzee Rascal, the Arctic Monkeys, Plan B and more, don’t forget to check our journey planner for cheap trains to Chelmsford and Stafford.
