From Bruton station a shuttle service runs to Gilcombe. You are strongly advised not to try to walk there as the road is winding, narrow, busy and fast. If you have to wait, particularly if there is a crowd waiting, be very careful to keep behind the yellow line on the platform as express trains come through at 100 mph with little warning.

There are no facilities at Bruton station, no toilets, no staff, no ticket machine, but when you are leaving at the end of the Festival you will find useful Help Points on each platform with a screen showing what trains are coming, what time they are expected, and where they are just then.
