Cheltenham Festival Infographic

Off to the Cheltenham Festival?

Who can blame you! There’s some big money spent on each day of the festival and prize money for the participants totals over £4.5 million.

Gloucestershire benefits to the tune of up to £100 million, so you can expect fun events in the local pubs and hotels. If you need hotels, book early - you’ll find our recommendations toward the bottom of our infographic!

You can pick your ticket for the festival from their site, and you’re highly likely to find a bus to take you to the event as National Express offers services from 21 locations across the UK.

Whatever you do, get in early. Each day can see up to 60,000 people attend, with the local train station dealing with an expected 100,000 commuters.

Each day will see seven races with some of the top horses on the planet taking part.

You’ll need plenty of refreshments but remember you can only order 4 pints or shots at a time, so ensure that you have friends at the bar to help celebrate your big wins!
