Hawkwell campsite at Glastonbury Festival


Hawkwell is situated on the hill directly below Worthy Farm itself and like the adjacent Michael’s Mead camping field, it too has quite a steep slope (35+ degree angle, in some places).

On the plus side of things, looking down the hill toward the heart of the Festival can make for some spectacular scenic views – and as well as being located close to both the Pyramid and Woodsies (formerly John Peel Stage), it is also fairly accessible from the Festival Bus Station at Pedestrian Gate A, as well as from eastern Gates B and C.
