Glastonbury 2023 accommodation information

Everything we know so far about campervans, tipis, Worthy View and Sticklinch pre-erected tents ahead of the upcoming sale – soon to be made available for ticket holders to book

Last updated: 25 November

Whether you managed to purchase tickets in the recent sales, or are looking ahead to the Spring resales for another chance to try and get Glastonbury 2023 tickets – you might be wondering what the Festival has to offer in terms of pre-pitched accommodation options.

Well, along with campervans and caravans, these options also include the Tipis, Worthy View and the newly introduced Sticklinch campsite – which first debuted in 2022.

Although all entry tickets to the festival already include access to a wide range of camping fields for those bringing their own camping gear with them, there are people who prefer to carry light and arrive on-site at a ready-made tent.

Before scrolling down to the main part of this piece, please note that all the accommodation options listed below are only available to those who have already purchased their Glastonbury Festival 2023 ticket.

Worthy View,  Sticklinch, Tipi  and  Caravan/Campervan  ticket bookings will be taken exclusively by the Festival’s nominated booking agency, See Tickets, from 12noon on Thursday 1st December 2022.

Worthy View

 

Glastonbury’s official offsite campsite, Worthy View – which first made its debut in 2013 – will once again be back for 2023.

The pre-erected campsite offers unpretentious, custom-made and pre-erected accommodation, only a short walk from the Festival site – boasting a wide selection of tent types, from scout, bell and yurts tents, to Podpads, Bellepads and Octopads.

Where is Worthy View located?

The colour-coordinated rows of Worthy View’s bright tents (seen in the image above) are located south of the Festival site, on Pennard Hill – just above The Park area and Stone Circle field.

Pedestrian access from the Festival site to Worthy View is through the Pennard Hill Pedestrian Gate via a footpath at a gradient – which is not suitable for wheelchairs, perambulators or child buggies (as seen in the video below).

Vehicle access to the Worthy View car parks is via Red Route (A361) if approaching from the North, and via Blue Route (A37) if approaching from the South.

Festival-goers at Worthy View will also benefit from designated car parks, in the adjacent field to the campsite.

How much will Worthy View accommodation cost for 2023?

Do keep in mind that the prices listed below are for the whole tent, which can be split between the number of people planning to stay in it – proving they all have their own festival ticket, obviously.

  • 2-person scout tent: £400 (£200 each)

Worthy View tents

Sticklinch

 

As part of Glastonbury’s continued commitment to reducing waste at the Festival, a new offsite campsite known as Sticklinch was announced for the planned 2020 event – before a forced 2-year consecutive cancellation of festivals took place due to the worldwide pandemic.

After finally making its debut in 2022, Sticklinch now resides in the fields formerly occupied by Campervans West, after additional campervan pitches were made available in Campervans East and at the Bath & West Showground to accommodate the displaced campervans and caravans.

Like Worthy View, Sticklinch will offer pre-erected Festival accommodation a short walk from the Festival site – for those who would like to have a tent ready and waiting for them on arrival, and nothing to carry home but their bags on the way back.

Although, unlike Worthy View – where you’ll need to walk up a steep hill to get back to camp – Sticklinch campers enjoy “a more gently undulating walk to the Festival site, ideal for those who find the climb to Worthy View challenging.”

Where is Sticklinch located?

Pedestrian access to the site is through the former West Campervan Pedestrian Gate (between the Bailey’s and South Park camping grounds, near Cineramageddon), via a footpath with a gentle gradient across the Rigg’s Field campsite.

Sticklinch (seen on the map below), also benefits from car parking in an adjacent field to the campsite, though Glastonbury encourages anyone leaving their tent at home in favour of ‘glamping’ to use public transport wherever possible.

Vehicle access to the Sticklinch car park is via Orange Route from the A361.

Tipi Village

 

Another option for those who prefer to have a tent ready and waiting for them, as with Worthy View, The Tipi Village has long established itself as part of the annual landscape at Glastonbury Festival.

There are a limited number of Tipis available to hire for ticket holders, offering an ethnic experience of living in a tipi for the duration of the festival with spectacular views across the whole site from the hills.

These traditional pre-erected 18ft canvas “tents” come complete with groundsheet and rain-catcher and are intended to be an elemental experience, without the trappings of ‘luxury’ campsites.

You will however need to bring your own bedding, mats, and any other necessary creature comforts, and expect to be using basic camping facilities.

Each Tipi can house up to 6 adults and the entire village has its own facilities including compost toilets and showers – plus there will be hot food and drinks available to purchase, a communal fire, and space around the Tipis to sit and for children to play.

Where are the Tipis located?

The Tipis are located in an area known as the Tipi Village, which is situated on the southern slopes of the Festival site, split over two locations with some situated near the Stone Circle and others adjacent to The Park area.

How much did tipi accommodation cost in 2022?

The price for hiring a tipi last time around at Glastonbury 2022 (bought in 2019) was £1150.

How much will tipi accommodation cost for 2023?

For 2023 tipis will cost £1500 to hire (payable in full at time of booking), for up to 6 adults (or £250 each per person – if you have 6 people in your party).

When will tipi accommodation go on sale?

Tipi  ticket bookings will be taken exclusively by the Festival’s nominated booking agency, See Tickets, from 12noon on Thursday 1st December 2022.

Campervan tickets

Campervan tickets are a great option for families or festival-goers who prefer the luxury of a comfy bed instead of an inflatable mattress and sleeping bag.

When booking a campervan ticket in 2023, you’ll need to decide whether you want to be parked in the East Campervan Fields or at the Bath & West Showground, while choosing from a number of different campervan ticket types, as detailed below:

East Quiet Campervans/ Hired, Delivered Vehicle Pitches (Blue route):
Pitch up to 8m x 7m, for one vehicle up to 8m in length
Suitable for Families, those with access issues and those looking for a quieter field. Situated between Blue route and the Festival site. Turn left for Quiet Camping off Blue route.

East General Campervans (Blue route):
Pitch up to 8m x 7m, for one vehicle up to 8m in length
Situated off Blue route turning right to access the camping fields.

Bath & West Campervans Regular Pitch (White route):
Pitch up to 8m x 7m, for one vehicle up to 8m in length
Located at the Bath & West Showground, with a 24-hour free shuttle bus service to the Festival site.

Bath & West Campervans Large Pitch (White route):
Pitch up to 16m x 7m, for all vehicles over 8m in length including hired vehicles being delivered
Located at the Bath & West Showground, with a 24-hour free shuttle bus service to the Festival site.

Where is the campervan site located?

Previously, the majority of campervan and caravan campers all used to arrive at the festival site via the Blue Route in order to access the dedicated fields reserved for them to the east of the site.

Then since 2010, two additional fields were reserved to the west of the site, until in 2022 these fields transitioned into the new Sticklinch pre-erected camping area (mentioned above).

The Bath and West Showground were introduced in 2016 and provide a free shuttle bus available 24 hours from the Showground to the Festival Bus Station.

There is an estimated 10-minute walk from the East campervan fields to the outer areas of the Festival and 20 minutes to the main stages – this at an average pace (longer when the site is busy).

However, timing will depend on where in the fields you are placed, as some fields are much further out than others.

The site map will give you a general idea of the distances involved and your nearest access points.

How much did tipi campervan tickets cost in 2022?

Campervan tickets for 2022 (bought in 2019) cost £125 for a standard pitch or £225 for a large pitch.

How much will campervan tickets cost for 2023?

Campervan tickets for 2023 will cost £150 for a standard pitch or £250 for a large pitch.

When will campervan tickets go on sale?

Caravan/Campervan ticket bookings will be taken exclusively by the Festival’s nominated booking agency, See Tickets, from 12noon on Thursday 1st December 2022.

Campervans at Glastonbury Festival

Don’t be fooled

Glastonbury Festival would very much like fans to be aware that there are people out there who will try and sell fake Glastonbury tickets to unsuspecting, willing and innocent potential purchasers.

Although Glasto-veterans who have been going to the Festival for quite some time may recognise these scams for what they are, newcomers might not.

Therefore, please remember that tickets are only sold on one site, which is: glastonbury.seetickets.com.
