Sitting on the Staffordshire / Derbyshire border, Uttoxeter Racecourse is just 16 miles from both Stoke-on-Trent and Derby and has excellent public transport services. All access routes are well signposted from the A50, A518 from Stafford and Uttoxeter Town Centre.
Free car and coach parking is available on site, whilst Uttoxeter Railway station is adjacent to the Racecourse.
The Racecourse opens between 2 and 3 hours before the first race, however please check the specific event page prior to travel for update timing information. If you have booked hospitality or into one of the restaurants, we recommend arriving at the racecourse for the 'gates opening' time or at least 1 hour before the first race to allow plenty of time to enjoy your meal before the racing action starts.
Traffic can be very busy in Uttoxeter and the surrounding areas on racedays, so please allow extra time for your journey.
