Coach group booking

Coming by coach is the most affordable and fun way to come to Skanda Vale.

Our temples are only open for a few hours each day, so it’s important that you plan your pilgrimage carefully so your group can enjoy the maximum time in our temples. Please apply using the form below two weeks before you make a booking with your coach company.


  • The best time to arrive is at 06:00 as we are unable to provide minibus transport to elderly pilgrims before this time.
  • If you plan to attend the Maha Shakti puja at 18:00, you need to be sure that your driver is able to wait until 20:00 (or 21:00 on full moon weekends). Groups will not be allowed inside the Temple if they have to leave early, as this will disturb the devotion.
  • Unfortunately, we are unable to provide overnight accommodation or an evening meal to coach groups.
  • We are not a tourist attraction – coach groups travelling as part of a sight-seeing tour will not be permitted to use the temple facilities.
  • A rough guide price for coach pilgrimage to Skanda Vale is in the region of £30 or £40 per person. If your group organiser charges you significantly more than this, please inform us, as we do not allow operators to exploit our pilgrims.
