RAIL: Oxenholme station is Kendal’s closest mainline train station, with direct connections to Glasgow, Manchester and London.

From there, hop on a quick Lakes Line connection to Kendal Station, which is a short walk from the town centre, or just under a mile from the finish at Beast Banks through the main shopping area.



BUS: Kendal Bus Station is on Blackhall Road, right in the centre of town behind Westmorland Shopping Centre and the bustling high street. Many routes pass through this bus station, and continue into the Lake District too.


BIKE: Race fans will find plenty of cycle parking on racks in prominent places throughout the town centre, while Kendal also has 20 free to use secure bike boxes available for up to 24 hours at a time.  For more details click here.

ROAD: There are a number of public car parks in Kendal town centre, more details of which can be found here.

There is no car parking at the finish itself on Beast Banks or in and around the Greenside area of Kendal and we encourage the use of public transport wherever possible.

Road Closures

Road closures come into force in the Greenside area of Kendal from early morning on Tuesday 10 September.

Rolling road closures will be in place for most of the route, with temporary parking restrictions in operation to prevent obstructive parking along the event route.

Advanced warning signs will be in place along the route promoting the restrictions.

Tour Village

Don’t forget to visit the Tour Village on Greenside, offering fans a big screen showing full live coverage of the stage, plus exhibits from race partners.

Local amenities

The beautiful market town of Kendal is set on the doorstep of the Lake District.  But before rushing to explore the beautiful countryside that makes the town a perfect base, don’t forget to visit the shopping opportunity that combines independent retailers with high street brands, plus countless local food and drink opportunities that abound throughout Kendal town centre.
