Unlike many festivals which are an ordeal of backroads and little used byways. The Willowman is very easy to get to. If you let the train take the strain you have a 2 hour 45 minute journey from Edinburgh Waverley Down to Northallerton. For Southern visitors it is a 2 hour 40 minute journey up from London Kings Cross and again hopping off at Northallerton. From this busy little market town it is a 10 minute cab journey to the festival site.
