Accessibility

RAIL: Warwick railway station is served mainly by Chiltern Railways with direct links to Birmingham and London, but also less frequently by Cross Country Trains and West Midlands Railway.

It is a one-mile, 30-minute walk from the railway station to the racecourse via Smith Street, Jury Street and Friars Street.

It is also possible to use Warwick Parkway railway station, however the walk to the racecourse is further and significantly less pleasant!
