COMING BY TRAIN? THE best mainline station near goatfest is STEVENAGE - with regular fast trains to London, Peterborough and Cambridge, AND A TAXI RANK OUTSIDe, WE'D SUGGEST TRAVELLING HERE INSTEAD OF welwyn or Knebworth. there will be no train service all day at Welwyn North and Knebworth on Sunday 28/08 because of engineering work between Stevenage and Alexandra Palace. so if you're getting the train to the festival it would be best to use Stevenage, particularly on Sunday 28/08. stevenage is about five miles away from the festival site. There is a taxi rank outside Stevenage station on Lytton Way and ubers are also readily available in the area.
