Cheltenham Festival by steam train



The Cheltenham Festival is without doubt the greatest racing Festival of the year, as the sight of the very best National Hunt horses leaping the Cheltenham fences is breath taking.

We give you the unique opportunity to avoid the race traffic in and around the racecourse by starting your journey at Toddington railway station and taking a magnificent steam train transfer directly to the back of the main Grandstand. The journey is a relaxing 35 mins through the beautiful countryside. A full cash bar service is available throughout the outbound and return journey where tea, coffee, beers, wines, soft drinks and Champagne is available to purchase.

Private and shared Chase View boxes have balconies that give you a wonderful view of the horses jumping the most important fences in a race, the last two, before powering up the hill to the winning post. It so convenient in that as soon as the race is over you will be able to take a few steps back to your table to continue your hospitality. Betting facilities & toilets are easily accessed on the box corridor, avoiding the hassle of having to travel outside of your box into the crowds. The day is further highlighted by a racing tipster who will come into the box and go through the card.


Private boxes are available for groups of 30 / 40 + guests with smaller numbers accommodated in shared boxes. The boxes are glass fronted, course facing with viewing balcony and in a prime position standing very close to the trackside.

The steam train will depart back to Toddington approximately 30 minutes after the last race has finished leaving you plenty of time to collect any winnings, finish off your hospitality and return to the steam train. You will miss all the traffic in and around the Cheltenham area.
