TRAVELLING TO WESTPOINT

Arriving by Bus (RECOMMENDED)

Buses have priority entry onto the Westpoint site and will skip the on-site car queues!

Stagecoach has kindly supported the event again this year, offering a discounted £2 return fare to all advance ticket holders!

On presentation of an advance ticket, the bearer will be entitled to the discounted return fare with Stagecoach on the 9W buses from Exeter. These buses will be running every 15 - 20 minutes from...

  • St Davids Station  5.00pm - 6.25pm
  • City Centre Bus Station  5.10pm - 7.05pm
  • Sowton Park & Ride (inside)  5.20pm - 7.15pm

Due to engoing building works surrounding the bus station, the 9W might stop just outside the bus station in Cheeke Street. Please check this page for an update before traveling.

In addition, the normal 9 service will run in parallel with the 9W, starting from the Bus Station.

If the scheduled buses are full, Stagecoach will provide additional buses to ensure nobody is left behind.

The 9W buses will return from Westpoint at regular intervals from 8.00pm until 9.20pm.
After this time you can still catch the normal 9 Service from just outside Westpoint.

The £2.00 return ticket will be valid on the normal 9 service as well, but only after the 9W buses have finished.

These bus tickets will only valid on 3rd November 2019 (family tickets entitle 2 adults and 2 children to travel together for £2.00 per person) and advance tickets do not guarantee travel to the event.

Arriving by Car

There is ample FREE parking, but be sure to arrive early or expect on-site queues from the 5000+ spectators!

Please plan to arrive on site by 7:00pm at the latest, to allow time to park and pass through the ticket gates before the fireworks go off between 7:30 and 7:45pm.

We will need to close the main gates to road traffic at 7:30pm due to the location of the fireworks firing area. If you arrive after 7:30pm we cannot guarantee that you will be able to get onto site even if you have bought advance tickets.

Disabled 'Blue badge' drivers please follow signs for disabled parking and easy site access.

Arriving by Taxi / Drop off

There is a dropoff point near the entrance to Westpoint so you will avoid a lot of the car traffic. Please note that there must be no hanging around in this area to prevent gridlock.
