Travelling 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.

The Racecourse is about 4 miles from the centre of Taunton and there is a public bus service provided by Stagecoach, details of which can be found by following this link  

(Please be aware the bus will drop off at the junction to Staple Fitzpaine approximately 150yds from the racecourse and there is no footpath or street lighting along that stretch of road)
