Cheltenham is likely to be very busy during Festival periods so please make sure you arrive in plenty of time and plan your parking arrangements in advance. The easiest and simplest places to park are the two Park & Ride centres at Arle Court (GL51 6SY), just off Junction 11 of the M5 motorway, and a second at Cheltenham Racecourse (GL50 4SH).
The nearest large car parks to the festival hubs at Imperial Gardens and Montpellier Gardens at The Regent Arcade (GL50 1JZ) and Cheltenham Walk (GL50 3PR), and there are smaller car parks also in the vicinity including Rodney Road (GL50 1HX) and St George’s Road (GL50 3DT) although parking here is limited. For more information about parking in Cheltenham visit the Cheltenham Borough Council website. Please note that in previous years Cheltenham Park and Ride locations have closed at 6pm.
