Travel

By Bus: One of the best ways to get to Latitude is by coach with National Express, the Official Coach Travel Partner for the Festival.

You can purchase travel only or complete travel, admission and camping packages. Avoid all the hassle of parking and walking and be dropped off with all your belongings closer to the action than any other form of transport. National Express have more than 30 years of experience in taking hundreds of thousands of people to festivals and events.

For the Festival, National Express will be running coaches direct to the Festival. They have enough space in the luggage hold for all your supplies and a tent and of course the added bonus that travelling by coach is better for the environment than travelling alone by car.

By Train: If travelling by train you can either use Halesworth or Diss Stations – the Festival Transfer Buses run to and from both stations regularly to the Latitude Festival site. However train services into Halesworth, are limited in capacity and festival goers coming by train at peak times on the Thursday afternoon or Friday during the day and leaving Monday are advised to travel via Diss Station instead.
