What’s the best way to get to Cheltenham from Bristol just in time for the afternoon races at the Cheltenham Festival?
Train tickets can go as low as £5 and travel time usually is around 40 minutes if you’re starting from Bristol Temple Meads. You’ll never run out of trains to choose from, and different travel times, too. If you want to make it to the afternoon races (which usually begin around 1 in the afternoon), you have to depart from Bristol at least an hour or even an hour and 30 minutes because from the stop at Cheltenham Spa, there’s still a little travel needed to get to the racecourse. If you’re going on a weekend, remember that there are fewer departures from Bristol to Cheltenham Spa. The earliest train usually leaves at around 6:20 or 6:30 in the morning.
If you don’t want to ride public transportation twice, or if you have plenty of stuff or if you’re travelling with company, why not book an event chauffer at Elite Executives? Aside from their fleet of cars, they also offer executive minibus hire for large groups of people. If you’re on a day trip to Cheltenham with friends, make the journey pleasant and comfortable so you’ll be at your best when you watch the races!
