There is no parking at the site.
Morden Tube Station is located at the bottom of the Northern Line, which runs directly right from central London. From the station, Morden park is a 15-minute walk away and will be sign-posted on the day.
Northern line services from Morden Station also run directly to both of this year's official after parties (held at Egg London). We would, therefore, advise anyone intending to head to one of the after parties following the festival, that they once again make use of Northern line services.
