Customer Information during the rail strike

We are looking forward to welcoming visitors to attend this weekend’s racing.

With rail strikes taking place on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday this week, we wanted to outline the transport options in place alongside additional measures to help you get here.

Book your taxi in advance 

We do strongly advise you to pre-book your taxis for the end of the evening if required. We recommend Absolute Taxis

Taxi pick up point at the racecourse

The nearest pick up point is by the Grand St Leger Hotel

Plan ahead

We’d recommend you leave extra time to travel to the racecourse. On Saturday 25 June, gates open two hours before the first race at 6.00pm and there’ll be plenty of bars and eateries open from gates open. The last race takes place at 9.00pm. The event will end after the Paloma Faith performance at 11pm.

Plenty of space for parking at the racecourse

If you are driving to the racecourse, please be assured we have plenty of free parking available in Car Park C. 

Can leave cars overnight and collect the next day

Cars can be left overnight and collected the following day from the racecourse. Please let the Stewards know when parking that you are leaving your car overnight

Local bus information

On Saturday, shuttle buses from the town centre to the racecourse will run pre and post racing. Tickets cost from £2.00 single, £3.00 return. Please check the Travel South Yorkshire website to help plan your journey.


Tickets are still available in advance and on the day to attend racing on Saturday to watch Paloma Faith Live After Racing.

Thank you to all our customers for their support and we are looking forward to welcoming all our customers for a great evening of racing.
