The home of Pete the Monkey Festival is the picturesque seaside village of Saint-Aubin-sur-mer, in rural Normandy (department 76). Beware there is another village with the same name in department 14 Calvados.
From the UK, we recommend catching the ferry from Newhaven to Dieppe. DFDS ferries run a ferry service three times a day with a journey time of 4 hours. There is a bar and restaurant onboard and beautiful views across the channel. Only a limited number of tickets for foot passengers and cyclists are released every crossing so book early. There is also an overnight service with cabins bookable in advance.
Festival shuttle buses are available for foot passengers from Dieppe port on July 11th and for the return journey on July 13th.
Alternatively there are more ferries from Dover to Calais, however the onward journey from Calais to the site is about 2hr30m by car. There is no direct public transport.
The nearest train station to the site is Dieppe, 20 kilometers away. Trains from Paris take 2h15min. From Dieppe Ligne 61 offers a regular bus service to the site, it is also an easy cycling distance or you can book a taxi. A festival shuttle bus will also run several times a day.
