Latitude organisers Festival Republic are encouraging festival-goers to respect the environment by leaving their cars at home.

Coaches, trains and transfer buses will all be available.

Cyclists can use bike racks opposite The Stables, accessed via Orange Gate on the A145, but day ticket holders should use the day entrance on the A12 to get onto site nearest to the day ticket holder entrance, where they can lock bikes on to fencing.

Greater Anglia have asked festival-goers to not take bikes on trains as space is limited.

Weekend ticket holders should take the train to Diss and get on a festival transfer bus, which will take one hour and cost £7.50 each way or £6.50 if booked in advance.

You may also want to watch:

There are no festival transfer buses running from Halesworth on Thursday, Friday or Monday so day ticket holders should travel via Diss on Friday and via Halesworth on Saturday and Sunday.

National Express, See Coaches and Anglian Bus are running services and Anglian Bus is running a service from Southwold, via Reydon and Wangford, throughout the day and returning after 11pm daily.

Otherwise festival organisers are encouraging people to car-share, using goCarShare on Facebook.

There is priority parking by one of the site entrances for the first 300 car-sharers to sign up and all occupants of the car could win a pair of tickets for Latitude 2014.

Day ticket holders using public transport are also being reminded to plan their return journey as there are no train services from Halesworth or Diss late at night and festival transfer buses will not run at that time. Taxi services have been invited to come to the day car park site to pick up and there is a list of taxi companies on the Latitude website.

There is also a free day ticket campsite with limited facilities for people who cannot travel home and wish to stay overnight before travelling home the next morning.
