    TRAIN TO THE RACES

    by davidjo Written Jan 18, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The only reason to visit Ascot would be to attend a meeting at the famous racetrack which is only a ten miute walk from the station. Trains leave Waterloo every half hour for the one hour journey to Ascot, before continuing to Reading. There is another line with trains leaving to Guildford every 30 minutes.

    car rental

    by iaint Updated Jun 24, 2008

    We rented a car from Hertz at Heathrow. I was dreading it, because I hate car rental at big airports where you have a 30 minute shuttle bus trip and then stand in line to be "booked in".

    In fact, the bus came quickly and booking in was quick too. Maybe because it was late (9pm) on a Friday night.

    I'd spotted a good deal with Hertz - £60 per day for one of their fun collection - a VW Beetle convertible. Sad to say - no Beetle but a Ford Focus convertible instead. Car was good enough, but the weather meant that the top stayed up. Ah, Britain...

    All went well at drop off too. Some dimwit in a Merc scraped my car in a car park, but Hertz didn't seem to mind...

    traffic hell

    by iaint Written Jun 22, 2008

    Our trip from hotel to racecourse (10 miles) should have taken 22 minutes according to the AA website.

    Actually it took 75 minutes! It seemed like virtual gridlock. I'd assumed double the normal time, but gee! Fortunately we'd planned on being there 2 hours before the start to give time to look around and eat our picnic, so all was well!

    We were expecting more of the same on the way back, but it was very easy - 30 minutes.

    If we were doing it again, we'd go earlier!

    Railway Station.

    Outside Ascot station. June 23rd, 1995.

    The railway station is a short walk along a dedicated path to Ascot racecourse. There is a pub right next to the station and as you can see, a taxi service.
