Blue Badge Holders
This year we have introduced a free Blue Badge Car Park on site on the Abbey Green that can be accessed from Abbey Road. Please display your badge as you arrive.
Barking has great transport connections via Barking station which is only a five minute walk from the venue. The station is serviced by District and Hammersmith & City underground lines, National Rail services via C2C and London Overground Gospel Oak to Barking line.
Abbey Green is a relatively flat site on grass with hard standing paths.
The Abbey Ruins is on two levels, with the main entrance point via the Curfew Tower (off Broadway) which services the majority of facilities including a good viewing area and toilets including one accessible toilet and one adult changing area. Steps lead to the lower level where the caterers and the bar is located.
Both sites have toilets, baby change and adult changing areas.
We are working with Mobiloo to provide specialist facility with ramped access, accessible change, toilet and shower and a hoist.
For assistance during the event, please visit the Information Point.
First Aid on site is located near the Information Point.
Families attending are encouraged to visit the Information Point in order to gain a wristband in case children or vulnerable adults become separated from your group.
There is no accommodation on site, however, we have a number of local accommodation within walking distance.
