Welcome to Camp Bestival, the UK’s original and most successful family festival.

Designed by families especially for families, Camp Bestival combines all the fun of a fantastic family camping holiday with everything you’d expect from an idyllic and action-packed festival adventure.

Caravanserai’s Electrifyingly Alien Delights Revealed

Lovingly fashioned from classic caravans and age-old fairground frippery, Caravanserai is a ramshackle otherworld of alien circus feats, Romany beats and intergalactic brass-fuelled wonder that never fails to deliver the beautifully off-kilter spectacles that make Camp Bestival the uniquely original family festival.

This Year's Activities

We have a host of activities for the whole family throughout the weekend, ranging from dreamy diversions to awesome adventures. Almost all of our activities are free but there are a handful that are paid-for or must be pre-booked… find out more below

Experience Camp Bestival


As Camp Bestival’s name suggests, we place a lot of emphasis on making sure your campsite experience is the best it can be. There are several different types of camping and accommodation fields at Camp Bestival – each with car parks relatively close by to reduce how far you’ll need to walk with all your kit (phew!), and each with their own tasty food stalls, recycling points, sets of showers and loos (many of which will be of the eco-friendly and non-smelly compostable variety), and more.
