This article is part of our series of guides to the different campsites in Glastonbury Festival. Wicket Ground is a family camping ground.
Updated for 2023!
Wicket Ground is a bit smaller now than it was in years gone by, as the south east corner of this campground has been turned in to an accessible camping area starting in 2023.
Camping in Wicket Ground
Wicket Ground at Glastonbury Festival is a camping field specifically reserved for families.
Surrounded by a fence with stewards at the entrance, this area offers added security and peace of mind for parents with young children.
One of the main pros of Wicket Ground is its close proximity to Pedestrian Gate A, making it a convenient option for families who enter the festival via this gate.
Additionally, the field still has a decent amount of camping space with room to spread out.
However, it’s worth noting that Wicket Ground is located on the outskirts of the festival site, quite far from the main stages and other attractions.
This may not be the best option for families with children who are looking to be closer to the action..
In summary, Wicket Ground is an option for families with young children who enter the festival via Gate A and don’t mind camping on the outskirts of the site.
It offers added security and ample camping space, but may not be the best choice for those looking to be close to the main stages and other attractions.
- Close to Pedestrian Gate A great for families arriving by coach or bus.
- Fully fenced off and staffed camping field.
- Quite far from child friendly areas like the Kids Field.
- Part of this campsite has been converted to accessible camping, so there will be less space than previous years to spread out.

For those who may not know, Glastonbury Festival is one of the biggest and most iconic music festivals in the world, taking place annually in the UK. This five-day extravaganza is like a magical kingdom, where the music never stops and the good vibes flow 24/7. The line-up is always a who’s who of the music industry, with past headliners including the likes of Beyoncé, Adele, Paul McCartney and Ed Sheeran.
But Glastonbury isn’t just about the music. It’s an immersive experience that’s hard to put into words. Imagine wandering through the lush fields, taking in the colourful and eclectic art installations, and getting lost in the diverse array of food and craft stalls. It’s like stepping into an entirely different world, where anything is possible.
One of the things that makes Glastonbury so special is the sense of community. The festivalgoers are a diverse group of people from all walks of life, but for five days, we’re all one big family. The vibe is so positive and inclusive, it’s impossible not to feel uplifted and connected to everyone around you.
