At weekends there is frequently engineering work with a bus replacement service, for the latest information at Great Anglia –http://www.abelliogreateranglia.co.uk/travel-information/service-alterations – but as far as we can see there is nothing planned for the beer festival weekend.

 By Bus

Billericay is served by several bus routes operated by First and Nibs. Many of them stop at the station so follow the same directions as above. Some stop in the High Street and you can turn right out of the High Street by the Police Station into London Road and at the bottom of the hill; turn left into Tye Common Road at the traffic lights.
