Getting There

Leave the car - there are plenty of other options!

Last year, around 85,000 people came to Eastwood for the Granny Smith Festival. Parking around the area is limited and will be filled early in the day.


Eastwood Station is just across the road from the Festival. Trains run on the Northern Line, with northbound trains going to Epping and Hornsby, and southbound trains going to Denistone and the City.
