Cheltenham Festival By Train

One of the many options available to you is via train, which is a very handy method of travel if you have planned on attending the Cheltenham Festival in advance. It is advised that you grab your train tickets as early as possible, as they tend to sell out quickly. Due to the popularity of this festival, there are always extra dedicated train services running from Birmingham New Street, Bristol and Derby to Cheltenham Spa – which is the closest stop to the location of the Festival. From Cheltenham Spa, we recommend you can then catch a taxi or the racecourse bus to the festival as it is around a 40-minute walk.

If you are stationed more locally to the event then the best form of travel may be via the dedicated bus services. From Cheltenham High Street, you can catch a dedicated bus to the racecourse during The Open and festival. Also, during the day you can use the Stagecoach D service which runs every 10 minutes and every 10 minutes to an hour in the evenings. Various pubs surrounding the festival provide mini-bus shuttle services to Cheltenham racecourse.
