Customer Information During The Rail Strike


22 June 2022

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 for our fixture on Saturday 25 June.

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 1.40pm and there’ll be plenty of bars and eateries open from gates open. The last race takes place at 5.05pm. The event will end after the Sigala performance which will run from 5:15-6:45.

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. 

Can leave cars overnight and collect the next day

Cars can be left overnight and collected the following day from the racecourse. However, please be aware that we are racing on Sunday and Monday so your ingress and egress to the racecourse will take longer than usual when collecting your car. Please let the Stewards know when parking that you are leaving your car overnight

Local bus information

The No 8 bus runs from outside Windsor Boys School to Slough, once every 15 minutes stopping on Arthur Road outside the racecourse entrance. 

Arriving by boat

There will be additional boat services running from the centre of Windsor. French Brothers run the boat connections to the course from Windsor Promenade. You can book in advance and see the timetable here:

Book your taxi in advance 

We do strongly advise you to pre-book your taxis for the end of the evening. There is a variety of reliable taxi services we can recommend: 

Taxi pick up point at the racecourse

The prebooked taxi pick up point and drop off location is at the main entrance to the racecourse.

Non-prebooked licensed taxis from the Royal Borough will be found at both the main entrance to the racecourse and outside the Grandstand entrance.

Tickets are still available in advance and on the day to attend racing here on Saturday’s Gentlemen’s Day ft Sigala 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.
