There are a multitude of ways to travel to Chepstow Racecourse. When we asked Mike Parcej, a friend of the racecourse and passionate horse racing fan, here's what he had to say:
''Newport Bus run a brand new and excellent bus link to the racecourse from the station (also one bus from Newport Station) - they run four buses to and from, and times vary as to the first race time - commencing approx 90 mins before the first race, one every 15 minutes approx. This is new since I last emailed the transport list, and is an excellent addition. Chepstow Station served on the Cardiff to Birmingham railway line, linking into the East West main line at Newport.''
The racecourse is on the A466 Chepstow to Monmouth road, not far from the now toll-free Severn Bridge. From the M4 East (Junction 21) or M4 West (Junction 23), take the M48 and exit at Junction 2 (Chepstow). Then follow the brown racecourse signs. Please leave ample time for your journey for our busiest race days. Aim to arrive at the course at least an hour before the first race.
A shuttle bus service provided by Newport Transport operates from Chepstow Train Station to the Racecourse via the town's bus station. The service also operates from Newport Train Station direct to the Racecourse. Please note: the bus timetable can be downloaded on the website page for the specific fixture you are attending.
