By public transport

If you're travelling by public transport, the best way to get to the railway is by Network Rail to Cheltenham Spa station.  You have two options to reach the GWSR's Cheltenham Racecourse station:

1 - take the excellent Stagecoach bus Service D or E from the station to 'Racecourse Park & Ride' from where it is a 5-10 minute walk to the station.  The bus service runs every 10 minutes on weekdays and Saturdays, and every 30 minutes on Sundays. Journey time is 22 minutes, so allow 30 minutes from departing Cheltenham national rail station to Cheltenham Racecourse GWR station.


Special Bus from Cheltenham Station

Additionally, every day, a free connecting vintage bus will make several trips direct from Cheltenham Spa Network Rail station to Cheltenham Racecourse station in the morning and late afternoon. The bus timetable will be published soon.
