TRAVEL INFORMATION:
By Road:
 Taunton Racecourse is on the B3170 road from Taunton to Corfe & Honiton, approx 2 miles south of Taunton Town Centre. Leave the M5 at Junction 25, and travel towards Taunton, following the signs for Racecourse. If you are travelling on the A303 from the West e.g. Honiton/Exeter direction turn left onto B3170 which will bring you directly to the racecourse. If you are travelling on the A303 from the East e.g. Chard/Ilminster direction then turn right at the Eagle Cross Tavern and continue until you reach the crossroads. Turn right and follow the B3170 to the racecourse.
By Rail: The Racecourse is about 4 miles from the Railway Station and there is no public bus service from Taunton to the Racecourse.
Courtesy Bus: A courtesy bus supplied by Berrys Coaches will depart the railway station from the main ticket office entrance TWO hours before the first race and return 30 minutes after the start of the last race.
(The coach no longer stops at Castle Green, only the Train Station). A return ticket will be issued to those people using the bus from Taunton allowing priority for the return trip. There is no guarantee of a seat for those without a return ticket.
