Everything you need to know about travelling to Greenbelt Festival
Keep it green
How you travel to and from the festival is the biggest contributing factor to Greenbelt’s carbon footprint. That’s why we encourage all Greenbelters to take public transport and to offset your journey when you purchase your festival ticket.
Greenbelt takes place in the beautiful, landscaped grounds of Boughton Estate, three miles from Kettering town centre. Kettering sits neatly on the main west-to-east road across central England, the A14.
It takes one hour to reach Kettering by train from London St. Pancras. There are also direct trains to and from Leicester, Nottingham, Sheffield and Leeds.
Travelling by Train
If you’re travelling by train, we have a shuttle bus to take you from Kettering Station straight to the festival site. A shuttle bus timetable will be available closer to the festival. The shuttle bus can take wheelchairs.
Travelling by Car

Vehicle Access to the Festival
Boughton House Estate is private property. Details of when the area of the estate being used by Greenbelt will be accessible will be released closer to the festival.

We open the site slightly early for those with access needs to enjoy quiet entry to the site, but this needs to be booked with Access Team. If you need any support getting onto/off-site then please contact our Access Team ahead of the festival. Golf buggy-style taxis are available on site for anyone with access issues.
