Park and Ride

Canterbury Park and Ride is the greenest, cheapest and fastest way to get to City Sound Project. It costs just £3.00 and you can park at either New Dover Road, Sturry Road and Wincheap. Buses run approximately every eight minutes, Monday to Saturday, from 7am to 7.30pm.

By rail

Canterbury has two mainline railways stations, East and West, and is served by frequent trains to and from London Charing Cross, London St Pancras (approximately 55 minutes) and elsewhere in Kent. National Express coaches run to Canterbury from London Victoria Coach Station.

By road

The Canterbury district has excellent road links with the M20 (M25/M26) and M2 motorways providing easy links to London and its airports. The A2 and A260 connect Canterbury with the port of Dover and the Eurotunnel terminal in Cheriton near Folkestone. Herne Bay and Whitstable are both a short drive from Canterbury, via the A28/A291 and A290.

If you’re travelling on a long journey to Canterbury, please ensure your car is maintained for the journey – no one wants to breakdown on the way here! Ensure your tyres are up to pressure to avoid punctures and be sure to check your car oil and coolant levels before you set off. If you’d like more helpful tips to avoid a breakdown visit the RAC driving advice pages.

By air

London Airports are all approximately under two hours drive from Canterbury City Centre.

By sea

Canterbury is very close to mainland Europe. A day trip or stay is a great way to sample the festival atmosphere. Take the car ferry from Dover or take your vehicle through the Channel Tunnel from Folkestone.
