Cheltenham RACE COURSE Station - GL50 4SH


As its name suggests, our Cheltenham Race Course Station is within the boundaries of the famous Cheltenham Racecourse and it is the southern terminus of our line. By another GWR quirk, our station name has 'Race Course' as two separate words. The booking office is at car park level and is the original 'flat-pack' building made at Swindon and transported here for assembly. The platforms are normally reached by a long ramp down to Platform 1, although there is level access for disabled visitors.
