Cheltenham Town

The terminus of our line lies in the grounds of the world famous Cheltenham Racecourse. As you arrive, you can imagine the noise and excitement on race days. We bring thousands of racegoers to the races by pre-booked trains.


If instead of wanting to watch the locomotive run round from one end of the train to the other, you plan to go into Cheltenham Town, maybe for shopping or just to look around, it’s about two miles away so be prepared for a good long walk. However, there are two other ways you can get there. You can either catch a bus at the park and ride bus stop on the other side of the racecourse, or travel in by taxi.


1.  There are Stagecoach bus services D and E Monday to Saturday every 10 minutes and service D half-hourly on Sundays and Bank Holidays to town from the racecourse park and ride site at the other side of the racecourse - a 20 minute walk from the station along the access road past the racecourse buildings.


2.  Or you can call in advance for a taxi. We have negotiated special rates for our visitors with three taxi companies. If you call one of the following companies on one of these numbers as you get on the train, they will be waiting at the racecourse station for you on your arrival. The cost is for the taxi from the station to outside Marks and Spencer’s in the town centre. The numbers to call are Dial-a-Cab (£7.50) – 01242 242424, Central Taxis (£7.50) – 01242 228877 or Spa-Tax (£8.00) – 01242 807666. The driver will then give you a card to arrange the return journey. Please note that, as these services are provided by outside companies, we can accept no liability for them.
