There is time limited on-street parking in Smith Street. Please note that Castle Lane and the Stables car parks will be closed. Please be aware that there may be road works in and around Warwick which will delay you getting to the start.
Warwick Castle’s Stratford Road car park can be used for dropping off and limited parking is available but usual charges (£6 at time of writing) apply after 10.30am.
Owing to the restricted (pay) car parking at Warwick Castle, you are advised to use the public car parks located at:
• St Nicholas Park car park,
• The Butts (opposite King’s High School for Girls - see map).
We stress it is important you allow ample time to get into Warwick Castle from your car. It is a 15/20 minute jog from these car parks and another 5 minutes to the start.
GATES OPEN AT 07:30AM – GATES CLOSED AT 08:45AM
