Road Directions

Car parks are situated in various locations around Cheltenham. Cheltenham is likely to be very busy during Festival periods so please make sure you arrive in plenty of time and plan your parking arrangements in advance. If at all possible, use public transport to travel around the town centre. If arriving by car we recommend that you use Cheltenham’s Park & Ride service, this is located at Arle Court (GL51 6SY, near M5 Junction 11) and Cheltenham Racecourse (GL50 4SH). Parking is free, and the service runs every few minutes into the Town Centre; but please note that times vary on Sundays. PLEASE NOTE: Park & Ride services are not operated by Cheltenham Festivals and do not drop off directly at Festival sites.
