As the number of travellers travelling to and from the beer festival is a great increase over the numbers normally travelling on this branch, and to enable people to get home after the festival closes, there is a special timetable for the duration of the beer festival. Extra trains, later trains and at peak time buses run to supplement the train service. Links below give the modified timetable for the beer festival.
Trains after about 14:00 Tues to Friday
Sat trains after about 11:00

By Bus

The number 88 bus operates a regular service between Great Yeldham, Halsted, Earls Colne, Chappel and Colchester. The bus stops in the centre of Chappel village, outside the post office. Once off the bus it is about a 10 min walk up Station Road, opposite the Post Office, following the signs to the British Rail Station. Buses are operated by both First Group, and Hendingham Omnibus.

By Car

We do encourage people to use public transport and certainly do not condone drinking and driving. If you no option but to drive we have a large free car park. Set your SatNav to CO6 2DS, and follow the signs into the British Rail Station. There will be car park stewards there to meet you and guide you into the car park.
