Cheltenham Spa station car park closure
The Cheltenham Spa station car park will be closed from 23:59 on Friday 8 March to 23:59 on Sunday 17 March. This is to help with the crowd control measures in place at the station during the races, and to manage the shuttle bus service which runs directly from the station to the racecourse. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause and thank you for your patience during this time.
