Travelling to the GWSR Racecourse Station

By Car – Sat Nav GL50 4SH

The GWSR Cheltenham Racecourse Station is adjacent to the famous Cheltenham Racecourse and therefore well sign posted within the district.  The Station is reached through the Racecourse main entrance. Sign posts  to the  “Steam Railway” guide you to the station carpark, adjacent to the GWSR Ticket Office.

By  Park and Ride Bus

The Cheltenham Racecourse host the car park for the local Park and Ride D and E Services.

The GWSR Station is  a 15-20 minute walk from the Park and Ride. The walk is enhanced by the view across the Racecourse to  Cleeve Hill.

Mainline Trains

For those wishing to “let the train take the strain” the E Service above was introduced for fast transit to and from Cheltenham Lansdown Station.

Of particular interest are the Golden Valley Service between Swindon and Cheltenham (the route of the Cheltenham Flyer) and the Cardiff to Cheltenham line (Gloucester Newport Line) that runs up on the western side  of the Severn Estuary, through Chepstow and Lydney. Both  of these are very scenic journeys and would complement a  trip on the GWSR from Cheltenham Racecourse Station  to Toddington.
