Travelling to the Eisteddfod Maes

Please use this information to help you reach the Eisteddfod in Anglesey.

Where is this year’s Eisteddfod?

The Eisteddfod will be held on agricultural land near the village of Bodedern, Anglesey.  
 


What is the postcode?

The postcode for the Field is LL65 3SS.  Please do not follow any Sat Nav directions that send you through Bodedern village.


Do I have to pay to park?

No, there is no charge for parking.


I have a disability.  Will there be a specific parking ground close to the Eisteddfod Field?

All the car parks are close to the main Eisteddfod Field and there are specific parking places for visitors with disabilities. Please show your blue badge to the steward in the car park.  


What is the guidance for those travelling by car?

If travelling along the A55 from the west, leave the dual carriageway at Junction 4 and follow the yellow signs to all the Eisteddfod fields. There will be a one-way system in place on these roads in order to minimize hold-ups and to ease traffic in Bodedern village.

Those coming from the Cemaes and Amlwch areas should travel to Valley and then join the A55 at Junction 3 (east bound) before leaving the dual carriageway at Junction 4 and following the yellow signs.

Those travelling from Llangefni or Llannerch-y-medd should go to Trefor and turn there for the A5 or the A55. Do not go towards Bodedern.  


I’m looking for an opportunity to share a car to come to the Eisteddfod.  Have you any advice?  

We encourage visitors to share cars to come to the Eisteddfod if possible. Go to https://liftshare.com/uk to see if anyone if looking for company. If you use Twitter, why not use the hashtag #A470 or follow the @clwbA470 account to look for company or a lift?


I’m hoping to use public transport to come to the Field. Have you any information about trains and buses?  

You can come to the Eisteddfod on public transport.  The No. 4 bus service runs regularly from Holyhead to Bangor, calling in Bodedern, and the 4A bus service runs from Bangor to Holyhead.  You can walk from the bus stop to the Maes in less than 10 minutes.  The X4 service also runs from Holyhead and Bangor.

A free courtesy bus operated by Arriva, will connect Bodedern and the Eisteddfod Maes with their service numbered X4 at Dalar Hir / VOSA between 09:00 and 00:00 from Thursday 3 August up to and including Sunday 13 August.  Services before 09:00 will be unaffected.  During this period Arriva’s journeys operating under the 4 service number, will serve the village of Bodedern from the direction of the village of Llanynghenedl rather than the village of Caergeiliog.

Regular train services also run across north Wales to Holyhead, so it’s easy to come to the Eisteddfod on the train.  Once you reach the station in Holyhead, cross the Millennium Bridge to the bus stop to catch the service bus (either the 4 or X4 service) to Bodedern.

Download the bus and train timetables from the bottom of this page.

Go to the Traveline Cymru website (www.cymraeg.traveline.cymru) for information about all public transport, including problems / alterations. Details about the train services to the area are on the Arriva Cymru website (www.arrivatrainswales.co.uk)


I am travelling by taxi to the Eisteddfod.  Where will I be set down?  

Taxis will be allowing to set down and collect passenger near the main entrance and in Maes B.


I hope to come to the Eisteddfod by bike. Will there be a secure place for me to leave my bike?  

We have specific places for bikes outside the main entrance and you will be able to lock your bike there.  


I am bringing a coach to the Eisteddfod.  Where should I park?

Coaches will be parked at the VOSA centre which is approx. a mile from the Eisteddfod Field.
