Festival, Festival, what is this ?

Well, you have eagle eyes indeed and you have of course spotted the fact we are now the Kop Hill Climb Festival.  So, why is this?  This year is our Tenth and in that time, let’s just say that an awful lot has changed. What started as a small band of enthusiasts running our cars and bikes up the hill is now put together by a team of over 200 volunteers. 


Brand New Website

Welcome to our 100% brand new website, custom built to celebrate all that’s great about the Kop Hill Climb Festival.  Since before Christmas our volunteers have been working super hard and we’re thrilled now to unveil the site to you.


Festival Fun

Many attractions during the event to keep the whole family entertained all weekend.

Fabulous Food

From ethnic to traditional, snacks to a feast, or perhaps a champagne, local ale or just an expresso. Whatever your taste we’ll be ready.


On stage a whole succession of top local bands playing from ten till we close.


Lots of it. Tempting you with vintage clothing, antiques, memorabilia, art – and of course just about everything you can think of that’s motoring related – it’s a real village of delights.

Location & Directions

Getting there

By car or bike – we’re up on the hill from Princes Risborough with plenty of space to park. The hill is located just 15 minutes from the M40 Junctions 4 or 6, off the A4010 mid-way between High Wycombe and Aylesbury. Look for the signs for Kop Hill Climb. For those who rely on electronic maps, set your Sat Nav to HP27 0LA and follow the signs.

Public parking is FREE

By train – Chiltern Railways run regular trains from London Marylebone or from the Banbury and Birmingham direction. The nearest station is Princes Risborough Station which is a 15 minute walk through the town and up to the festival on the hill.

By bus – it’s the Arriva 300 from either High Wycombe or Aylesbury which drops you just 5 minutes away.
