Camping/ where to stay:
There is no official campsite at PATP however we are happy to recommend the local campsite in Linlithgow which is just a 15 minute walk along the loch from the site. Pitches normally sell out fast so be quick. Find out more >
Accommodation in Linlithgow will be very busy over the weekend of Party at The Palace so best to book early.
For those looking for a little more comfort, we are pleased to recommend our partners at Belle Hotel. They provide luxury bell tents which can sleep up to 4 people in REAL beds. These normally sell out fast so don’t hang around and book today:

TRAVEL AND LOCATION
Where will the event be located?
After the huge success of our move across the loch for 2016 we retain this improved location for a second year. It truly has an amazing view overlooking the palace and down the length of the loch. The site layout can be viewed below so check this out to plan how to get there.
ESSENTIAL TRAVEL ADVICE
Party at the Palace is only 10 minutes walk from Linlithgow rail Station. We are keen for everyone to enjoy McEwan’s Party at The Palace and we want to get you all home safely whether or not the trains are running. Your patience on leaving the site is vital to the safety and well being of all those attending the event.
We have teamed up with concert travel specialists Happy Bus to provide coach travel. There will be coaches running from a number of locations including Glasgow, Stirling, Falkirk, Fife, Perth and Edinburgh. The Happybus prices are highly competitive with rail so if you had been planning to come by train please consider getting one of these coaches which depart from near the train stations. These buses must be booked in advance HERE.
There is ample parking at PATP so we would urge you to use the designated car parks shown on the map below and follow directions from our event stewards.
While we have capacity for over 1,000 cars, we would ask you to consider car sharing. It’s eco friendly, better value, and you might meet some new friends. Check who’s going and where they are coming from at HERE.
The speed limit around the parking areas is 5mph and must be observed.
Getting dropped off / picked up:
If you are being dropped off by car, taxi/private hire or mini-bus, we recommend the lay by on Blackness Road. This is a drop off point only and cars must not wait or park here. The pick up point after the event is the car park to the rear of Tesco. Taxis and cars can wait here safely without blocking the roads around the event.
Scheduled Bus Service:
These buses will leave from their normal departure points on the specified bus schedules shown HERE. Extra buses are being put on to Falkirk and Edinburgh by Firstbus on the 38 route but get to the stop in plenty of time as they will be busy.
Local taxi companies have been made aware of the event and will be operating from the normal taxi stance in Linlithgow on the High Street outside The Victoria Hall. It would be advisable to pre-book. A list of local taxi operators can be found HERE
WHEELCHAIRS & BUGGIES
Is the site suitable for wheelchairs and buggies?
Party at The Palace takes place on a grass field which includes an incline. The terrain may not be suitable for all types of buggy or wheelchair but our stewards are there to help and assist where possible. Loos for people with disabilities and baby changing facilities are available on site.
Is the site suitable for camping chairs?
While many find it comfortable and convenient taking in a small folding chair to sit on, they are deemed an inconvenience by others. To strike a balance, PATP does allow people to bring in camping chairs however they will not be allowed to be positioned directly in front of the stage. There will be a ‘chair free zone’ in a stewarded area around 50 metres from the stage. There is a very large area beyond that in which you are welcome to ‘park’ your seating for the whole day and you can then of course move closer to the stage when you fancy getting into the thick of it and retiring back to your seats again – just like at the dancin! We would also ask you to think of the environment and take your chairs home with you”
