Camp Bestival 2022 – plan your trip







Camp Bestival returns to Lulworth Estate later this month – with traffic restrictions in place to ensure safe access to the event and help keep vehicles moving through the area.

From Monday July 25 to Monday August 1, various measures will be in place in the Lulworth area, including:

  • The B3070 via East Lulworth will be one-way eastbound
  • 20mph speed limit on the B3070 via East Lulworth
  • 30mph speed limit on much of the B3070 and Coombe Keynes Road
  • 40mph speed limit on large section of B3071
  • clear lanes (no stopping or parking) in: East Lulworth, Burngate, B3071 and Coombe Keynes road

New Buildings Road will temporarily be one-way south to facilitate access to the festival, but will change to one-way north on Sunday evening to help traffic exit the site.

From Thursday July 28, there will be no more right turns from the A352 to the B3070 for the duration of the festival.

All these temporary measures will be signed on site and you can find the details on our online works map: https://www.dorsetcouncil.gov.uk/travel/travel-dorset/roadworks-road-closures

Be ready. If it’s hot, have enough drinking water in your vehicle.

Due to the volume of people arriving all at once, queues will develop.

Please be patient and respectful of others.

Traffic arriving for the festival peaked at midday last year and was incredibly busy throughout the day – with delays of up to 1 hour 28 minutes traveling south on the B3070 from the A352.

Monday morning (August 1) will also be busy with people leaving the site.
