Rosemoor have arranged transport from Bideford to their gardens and back again on Friday and Saturday night. There will be a bus service running from Bideford Quay to Torrington and then on to Rosemoor. It will cost £3 return when pre-booked. 

Those getting lifts from Barnstaple to RHS Rosemoor may wish to make the most of this bus service for an easier drop off and pick up point in Bideford. Drivers attending the festival can park at the gardens as usual.
