There is no car park at Newbury Racecourse station. If driving, please either park at Midgham station, where the walk will finish, and catch the same train to Newbury Racecourse at 10.28am, or please find somewhere to park considerately in the surrounding streets at Newbury Racecourse.

After walking past the racecourse, we will walk down the full length of Greenham Common.
