The Maes at the Denbighshire and District National Eisteddfod is easy to reach and accessible from all directions. Full details on how to reach the Maes will be published here closer to the festival.
We urge all visitors travelling by car to the area to ensure they follow the signs as they are there to help to guide you to and from the Maes as safely and as easily as possible.
Service buses will run from the train stations at Rhyl and Wrexham for anyone wishing to reach the Maes by train, and a regular shuttle bus will run between Denbigh and the Maes throughout the week.
How to reach the Eisteddfod Maes in your car

The signs are there to ease traffic and the routes have been discussed with the local council and emergency services. Our hope is to make sure traffic continues to flow throughout the festival and we ask for the support of our visitors to ensure this.
