Reviews of El Dorado Festival
For centuries intrepid explorers have searched the world over for the lost kingdom of El Dorado, a land believed to have streets paved with gold, layered with lakes of fresh water and luscious green jungles - a land so beautiful you will never want to leave.
At the close of June, the golden gates of El Dorado will open for the third time revealing a new weird and wonderful playground nestled amongst the hills of the beautiful English countryside.
Join us and other likeminded Explorers as we escape everyday life in search of something far more exotic.
Disabled Access Information
What is accessibility like at El Dorado?
El Dorado Festival is held at the Eastnor Castle Deer Park in Herefordshire. The land is woodland, farm land, lakes and has some uneven ground.
There is a tarmac road running up to the Main Arena. The Main Arena has a number of small hills inside its perimeter. There is a gravel road that runs around the edge of the Accessible Campsite.
The Accessible Car Park is located near the drop zone, Blue gate route. The ground leading from the accessible car park and campsite to the Main Arena entrance consists of gravel road and grass. The distance is approximately 400 metres. The Main Arena is 300 metres from the main gate to the furthest perimeter edge.
Please note: The weather conditions can dramatically affect the ground conditions, so wherever possible please try to consider what preparations you may need to make and equipment you may need to bring along.
