How to get to the Yarmouth Old Gaffers Festival.
The map shows the three Festival car parks usedin 2017. A Park & Ride service is available from all car parks.
Please note: dogs are NOT allowed to be left in cars!
Disabled parking is in St James Street, Yarmouth.
Wheelchairs are available from the Festival Information Desk (in the Town Hall).
There are toilets at all the car parks.
Wightlink Ferries from Lymington arrive in Yarmouth Harbour, booking in advance is vital as the Festival is so popular and many people come from the mainland. Other ferry routes across the Solent will require a drive or a bus journey to reach Yarmouth.
The bus station is conveniently located right next to the Harbour. Southern Vectis buses arrive regularly from Newport and Freshwater.
Where to buy Programmes & Tickets
Full details and times of various activities and performances will be listed in the Programme. These will be available to buy from many local shops and venues and the Festival Information Desk in the Town Hall.
Tickets for the evening performances in the Marquee will be available in advance from several locations and sometimes 'on the gate'.
