‘One of the most beautiful camp sites in England.’

In a lush, green field, nestling below the ancient chalk downs, and just a short ten-minute walk from the main festival site, is the History Festival camp site. It is the perfect place from which to enjoy all the many features of the festival, and is equipped with good facilities.

Basic facilities – loos and fantastic showers. Water available from bowser so drinking water needs to be brought.
