We are in the middle of perhaps the biggest address in the British spiritual world - the sacred Glastonbury landscape - a landscape infused with spiritual energies and spiritual history, myths, legends, ley-lines, and archaeological artefacts, and a romantic and quintessentially English village which has become a colourful, lively and vibrant stronghold of New Age communities, ashrams, and spiritual events.
The Earth Spirit Centre itself is located 5 miles from downtown Glastonbury, in beautiful countryside and serene nature, between two hills and adjacent to a nature reserve. We will have the entire venue and the surrounding lands for ourselves, so you can indulge, play, be free and be whoever you want to be. And still, we can dive into and work with the special spiritual energy of the Glastonbury landscape.
Earth Spirit is a complex of 17th Century farm buildings, beautifully restored and specially converted into a centre for spiritual growth. They have a medieval feeling, with oak timbers, reed torching, and stone walls, but with a light and airy atmosphere and comforts such as workshop spaces with under-floor heating, a fantastic indoor dining area and tea room to socialise, and a spa with a large hot tub and a 10-men sauna. All of this is set within seven acres of private land with gardens, fields, and woodlands.
Location: Earth Spirit is located in Somerset, five miles south of Glastonbury, at the edge of the village of Compton Dundon. The postcode is TA11 6PE. For detailed directions, see http://www.earthspirit-centre.co.uk/gettinghere.php .
Car Share Scheme: We want to care for our environment, so we offer a Car Share Scheme to share lifts, it also helps to ease those initial nerves you may have. We highly recommend this as the best way to get to the Festival. In our experience, there are plenty of people driving and willing to take others - it’s the cheapest and most fun alternative, and it helps to reduce our environmental footprint. We will send you details about this scheme in June/July 2018.
By Car: From the M25/M3 junction (South West London), it’s a 2 hours drive via the M3 and A303. Coming from Bristol, the Midlands, the North, or South Wales, it’s a 1-hour drive from the M4/M5 junction (Bristol), via the M5 and A39. Parking is easy at the venue.
By Train: The next train station is Castle Cary on the main London-Taunton/Exeter line. From Castle Cary, it’s a 20 min taxi ride to the centre (approx. £25). We will also organise pick-up for £10 per person from certain trains.
By Coach (from Bristol only): Coach 376 runs hourly from Bristol Temple Meads Station to Glastonbury and takes approximately 90 minutes. From Glastonbury, it's a 10 mins taxi ride.
By Plane: We recommend flying into any of the London airports (Heathrow is easiest). From the airport, catch the express train / tube to London Paddington train station, and then as above, a train to Castle Cary. - A quicker option is to fly into Bristol airport and take the coach from Bristol.
Further Details: - We will also send out detailed directions with our joining instructions, approximately 6 weeks before the Festival.
