Marsden Jazz Festival
Jazz In The Yorkshire Pennines

Getting Here

Marsden is perfectly situated for visitors to the festival, both near and far.

Marsden has its own train station and has good bus connections from surrounding areas.

Whilst you can travel to the festival by car, parking is very limited over the festival weekend, and so public transport may be more suitable.

Alternatively, if you prefer a more relaxed form of transport, the restored Huddersfield Narrow Canal runs through the village.

See more specific details below for travel to the festival, including links to key websites.


Marsden is just off the A62, about 7 miles west of Huddersfield and 11 miles east of Oldham. Set your sat nav to HD7 6BW to find us, or use the Google Maps link below:
