This is the only car park available which is actually on the stage. The Wild Boar Park is open for refreshments throughout the day and they will be siting a refreshment trailer in or adjacent to the spectator area for the duration of the event.

There is approximately a 10-minute walk from the car park up a hill to the spectator area at the top. Pass holders can drop passengers off at the top before parking the car and between stages it will be possible to pick passengers up to go down to the park.

To access the parking area prior to the first run of the Long Knots stage ticket holders must be at the rendezvous point by 07:30. There will be an opportunity to access the stage prior to the second running of the stage at approximately 12:30. Similarly, you will be allowed to exit the stage, but this will be under the strict control of the stage marshals.

The cost to park at Long Knots Wild Boar Park will be £20 (plus booking fee) per car (includes 4 adults).

Pre-paid Parking

This is controlled by the issue of QR Codes which will be scanned at the access / rendezvous points and exchanged for parking passes. Once the QR Code is scanned it becomes inactive ensuring that only one person can utilise the QR Code so please do not be tempted to share QR Codes or think that you can trick your way into a venue.

As roads in and around the special stages will be closed you MUST access the Pre-Paid entry point using the prescribed route, or you risk getting diverted and arriving late and being denied entry.

Access to the rendezvous point is via What3Words ///snoozing.hidden.richer and you must follow one of the prescribed routes to this point.

Access must be via the rendezvous point as detailed above.

PLEASE UNDERSTAND – The event has to pay for the use of land used for spectators. So, help us to provide you with spectator areas.

Come along and see the action on this exciting event. Your contribution will benefit our nominated charities and we thank you on their behalf.

Finally, the organisers hope you enjoy your day but most of all please stay safe.
