Camp Bestival is the UK's biggest family-friendly festival. A huge, super-eclectic lineup borrows some of the very best artists from its big brother, Bestival, while the side-entertainment and interactive workshops go into overdrive.

Backdropped by the stunning Lulworth Castle, Camp Bestival revels in all things fun and summery, with comedy, circus performers and amazing local food producers packing out the rest of the weekend.

Since its first edition in 2008 Camp Bestival has grown in stature to become pretty much the best family-friendly festival in the whole of Europe. For anyone no longer buying festival tickets in ones or twos, Camp Bestival is the place to be.

Built in the 17th century, Lulworth Castle has become Camp Bestival's iconic home. With acres of space for stages, workshop tent and endless entertainment, as well as the beautiful castle itself, it makes for a unique and instantly recognisable location. What's more, the charming Dorset coast is just a few miles away.
