Half of all trains heading to Glastonbury this week have been cancelled
Train strikes are proving to be a spanner in the works for travellers to Worthy Farm
Glastonbury returns this week for it's 50th anniversary, with a whopping 200,000 attendees expected to descend upon Worthy Farm this week — however travelling to the site may be trickier than ever.
Train strikes running from June 21, 23 and 25 see more than half of trains from London to the festival cancelled.
Great Western Railway (GWR) will be operating five services from London Paddington to Castle Cary on Thursday, with 24 between Wednesday and Friday.

Prior to the announcement of strikes, 51 trains were expected to run on the route over the three-day period.
Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) at Network Rail and 13 train operators will walk out on June 21, 23 and 25.
A GWR operator told the BBC that "plans to maintain timetabled trains" throughout the course of the week.
Adding that some train times may be altered "and we will be in contact with customers who have already booked seats on board those trains".

The official coach partner of the festival, National Express, will transport over 30,000 festival-goers but a spokeswoman warned of congestion in the surrounding area.
The spokeswoman said there was a "significant increase" in both inquiries and bookings around the dates of the strikes, "including on routes that provide travel to Glastonbury".
"We are working hard to increase availability to meet additional demand where possible.
She explained that the coach company was prepared to be busy but she recommends that customers allow "plenty of time" when planning their journey.
Glastonbury's line-up includes Billie Eilish, Paul McCartney, Kendrick Lamar and Diana Ross as well as a slew of electronic names including Four Tet, Bicep, and Caribou.
