The Cheltenham Half Marathon is taking place on Sunday 29th September starting at 9am at Cheltenham Racecourse and this may cause some disruption in the local area between 7.30am and 1pm.

Since opening the new station at Broadway we are finding that the first steam train of the day from Cheltenham Race Course Station is usually very busy. Passengers may need to share compartments and seating at tables with others. There is often more room towards the rear of the train. The following train is usually less busy.
The Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway is a volunteer operated heritage railway in Gloucestershire and Worcestershire offering a round trip of 28 miles. It uses part of the route of the former Great Western Railway's main line from Birmingham to Cheltenham which used to run via Stratford-upon-Avon.
It now operates steam and heritage diesel trains between Cheltenham Racecourse and Broadway through some of the most spectacular scenery in the Cotswolds. The line commands wonderful views of the nearby sleepy hamlets and villages, with outstanding outlooks across to the Malvern Hills and beyond.
