Car parking can no longer be pre-booked – please proceed to either of the Festival car parks (Macmillan or Clyro Court) and pay on the gate.
The Car Park at Hay in Aid of Macmillan is the closest parking available to the Festival site. It costs £7 per car per day, and you can come and go as you please.
Disabled car parking on the Festival site can only be accessed with a blue badge. The disabled car park costs £5 per day but is subject to availability. During peak times, we may have a 'drop off only' facility which will be available if the car park is full. If you are travelling alone, please call the box office on 01497 822 629.
There will be additional Park and Ride Car Parking available at Clyro Court (Baskerville Hall Hotel), HR3 5LE. Cost £5 per day with a free and regular shuttle bus which will drop you off at the Festival entrance.
Hay Festival is offering electric car charging points at the Clyro Court Park & Ride site (HR3 5LE). There will be four 13 amp sockets available and, if your car requires it, you will need to bring your own adapter.
The chargers will be available on a first-come first-served basis. There is also one fast charger available in the local area at Drovers Cycle Hire – you can book this online.
Please park with consideration for local residents. We ask you not to park on the highway or grass verges.
