Medicine is located at the stunning Wasing Estate near Reading; just one hour from London. Wasing is one of the most diverse rural estates in England, yet is still one of Berkshire’s best kept secrets.

COACH AND SHUTTLES

Save time, money and emissions, whilst travelling alongside other Medicine community, by hopping on a coach from London or Bristol. 

You can buy tickets for coaches and shuttle buses with our partners at Tuned In Travel. They are offering singles or returns from and to Bristol and London, and shuttles to and from Reading station (if you are flying in to Heathrow airport this is a good station to get a train to).

BOOK YOUR COACHES

TRAIN

There are well-connected trains from all ma jor cities. 

The nearest train stations are Aldermaston, Midgham, and Thatcham. 

However these stations do not have a taxi rank, and will require taxis to be booked in advance. The nearest stations with taxi ranks are Newbury, Reading, or Basingstoke.

CAR + RIDESHARING 

Though we’re working on making all elements of our gathering as sustainable and regenerative as can be, 70-90% of total festival emissions come from travel to the site.  

So it makes a huge difference to arrive on public transport, or to ride share with fellow travellers filling a car.

If arriving by car you can use WhatThreeWords – this will take you directly to the Box Office:

However, the festival site route will also be signed from Aldermaston and surrounding areas.
