Getting There

The Hop Farm
Paddock Wood
TN12 6PY


The Hop Farm opens its gates to 500,000 visitors each year, stretched over beautiful countryside the size of 100 football pitches.

Public transport or coach packages is one of the easiest ways to travel to us in order to avoid those pesky delays especially if you are only with us for the day!

A coach service will be available for you to save time coming on and off the site.

By Car

The Hop Farm is located on the A228 near Paddock Wood, Kent. Please remember when driving to any festival you will be one of many doing the same. Also it is not always the quickest option, certainly not the greenest. Check out our coach routes for a more ecological and economical option.

Please plan your journey to allow plenty of time to get to the site, the busiest period will be between 0900hrs and 1300hrs. You will experience queues when arriving and leaving the festival site, please bare this in mind when organising our travel to and from the festival. Car parking is free of charge.

If you decide to come to the festival by car please use the following postcodes for your SAT NAV and the follow the festival signage.

Directions - A21 - A228 - Follow Festival Signage

Campervans and those with mobility disabilities should look out for signs directing them into the site. Do not drop off on the road, it is dangerous and causes delays to the traffic entering the event. Please follow the signs for Production/Guest & Drop Off - the drop of point is situated well inside this access point and is clearly signed, there is also a quick exit route. All Taxi’s will also pick up and drop off at this point.


The car park will be open for the duration of the festival and completely free of charge.

If traveling by motorcycle please be aware we have no designated hard standing parking area, just grass. Please keep this in mind in the event of bad weather.
