Motorists traveling on the A303 and A37 are advised to use the postcode TA117DP.

Parking information for the Glastonbury Festival
The most sensible way to guarantee you a space was to pay £50 in advance – but the June 15 deadline has passed and that’s no longer an option.
But if you’re willing to risk it, you might be able to snag a first-some, first-served spot on arrival – though it’s not guaranteed.
Organizers have urged festival-goers to ensure they arrive on the right-hand side of their assigned parking space (east or west) to avoid lengthy waits.
The car park is open from 9pm on Tuesday to allow motorists to arrive at night when traffic is lighter, but the gates to the festival will not open until 8am today (June 22).
Motorists must follow the P signs to find the nearest parking lot, and they don’t have much choice as to where they are placed in the parking lot.
Top tip: Be sure to write down the route color and parking lot numbers so you don’t have to search parking lots for your vehicle when you get home.
The festival license given to the farm expires at 5pm on Monday, so organizers have asked people to have the parking lots cleared by then or risk being slapped in the face by authorities.
