Attending the Gold Cup Festival and wondering where to stay? There are lots of options in Cheltenham, and where you stay depends on your needs.

When should you book your accommodation?

Once you know which days you will be attending the Gold Cup Festival, you should look to arrange your accommodation.

Cheltenham Gold Cup Festival sees 60,000 – 70,000 attendees per day on average. Due to the popularity of the event, festival accommodation can get booked up quickly and is also more expensive during the duration of the Gold Cup Festival. Some accommodation providers will also have a minimum number of nights during this week and that is something to consider if you only plan on staying a night or two.

Best places to stay for Cheltenham Gold Cup Festival

Location Preference

Deciding where to stay during the festival depends on your preferences. Would you prefer to be close to the Racecourse or would you prefer to be close to Cheltenham town centre to join in the evening celebrations? Both locations have their benefits, so it depends on your own preferences.

You may also make your decision based on how you are travelling to the festival. For example, if you plan on getting the bus, it is helpful to be close to either Cheltenham Spa train station or the town centre so that you can easily walk over to the pick-up location. Read our article on travelling to the festival for more guidance in this aspect.
