Liam Gallagher will be on stage at Knebworth on 3rd and 4th June; here’s a little guide to get there by train and car.
If you want to attend to one (or both) of the shows by train:
Although Great Northern Rail has urged gig goers to travel to Stevenage station when going to the concert.
Ticket holders should not travel to Knebworth station itself because it will be closed.
Stevenage rail station is around two miles away from Knebworth Park. There will be no shuttle bus from Stevenage station to the site.
This applies to both the Friday and Saturday gigs. The train company added: “We are expecting services to be exceptionally busy so please allow plenty of time for your journey.”
However, Knebworth House says that there are no train services after the event to get you home. On its website, the venue said: “Due to the Queen’s Jubilee this will be a very busy weekend on public transport. You MUST plan ahead to ensure you get home safely at the end of the night. We do not advise anyone travels by train as there are no services following the event to get you home. Please book car parking, coaches or taxis in advance.”
In case you want to get there by car:
Yes, you can. Parking is also available but must be booked in advance. Routes into the site will be busy so drivers have been urged to allow lots of time to ensure they arrive well in advance of the bands they want to see.
Car parks will open at 8am and the arena will open at 11am. Performances start at 2pm with the event due to finish at 10.30pm. You can book parking in advance here.
If you are travelling by car from the north, follow all Event Signage to the A1(M). Exit at Junction 8, take the third exit onto the A602 to Hitchin. At the roundabout, take the first exit onto the B656 and follow all event signage to the car parks.
If you are travelling by car from the south, follow all Event Signage to the A1(M). Exit at Junction 7 and take the first exit onto site. Follow internal stewarding and signage to the car parks.
If you are travelling by car from the east, take the A602 to Stevenage. Here you will remain on the A602 and across Gunnelswood Road roundabout, across Junction 7 roundabout and into the site. Follow internal stewarding and signage to the car park.
If you are travelling by car from the west, aim for Junction 7. Follow event signage to get to the venue.
You can also drive to the venue if you want to camp there:
If coming by car and camping, enter the site via Junction 7. If you are travelling from the north drive south past Junction 7 (which will be closed southbound) and exit at Junction 6 and follow event signage from here. There is no car parking for camping customers on the west of site so you must come via Junction 7.
There is no additional camping available to buy on the day so you must book in advance. Details on how to do that can be found here.
If you want to get there by walk from local areas:
If you’re coming from Stevenage, you should walk across the roundabout at Junction 7 and follow the pedestrian walkway into the site this way. From Knebworth, there is strictly no pedestrian or vehicle access via Old Knebworth Lane. If you attempt to enter site this way you will be turned around by security and advised to use the Junction 7 entrance.
Knebworth House strongly advises that no one walks down the B656. It’s because there is no access to the site from here.
