Wincanton Racecourse,


Are you walking to the Racecourse from your local accommodation or from the town centre? Or are you parking at the racecourse? See below our directions and parking.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the racecourse.


Traffic to the racecourse can build up at peak times, and therefore we would advise you to arrive early to avoid the traffic.


In addition, especially at the major meetings the traffic exiting the course can also build up, so please do be aware of this when making travel arrangements.


Parking within the Main Car Park is free of charge.

For those who wish to park on the rails, parking is available in this area on every raceday.


The on-the-day cost to park is £6 per car (£8 on feature days) plus a Grandstand ticket for each occupant.


On Boxing Day the cost is £10 per car plus a course enclosure entry ticket at £12 per person.


This does not allow access to the parade ring but upgrades are possible on the day subject to availability.
