Taxi Services to Newmarket Racecourses

 

We recommend you pre-book your taxi in advance to avoid the taxi rank queue at the end of your day. 

 

NEWMARKET NIGHTS/SUMMER SATURDAY LIVE

At the end of the concert, no pickups are permitted outside the main gates, from the roundabout, or attempt to access the racecourse via Gate 4 off the Cambridge Road. The meeting point for all pickups, including Private Hire, is located via gate 2 in the White car park outside Premier Entrance 1. We recommend that you ask your taxi driver to park up and meet you outside Premier Entrance 1 in person. This saves a lot of time struggling to find each other!
