Black Opal Travel Group Don't follow the crowd.

Cheltenham Festival


A landmark event in the race enthusiasts’ calendar, the Cheltenham Festival delivers spectacular contests over four days, with a unique atmosphere appreciated by spectators, jockeys, owners and trainers alike.

Let Black Opal plan your visit to this memorable event, to see champions returning to defend their titles, culminating in the legendary Gold Cup. We can offer a choice of days and packages, with various vantage points and hospitality – whether you want to experience the famous ‘Cheltenham Roar’, as the tape is raised for the first race, or join the climax of the Gold Cup. If there is something you don’t see here that you are looking for, please ask our team!

For an added touch of style and avoiding the crowds, ask our team about the option of arrival by steam train from Toddington Railway station. For a special occasion or even more decadence, why not look at our package including return travel from London on the luxury Northern Belle train?

However you choose to enjoy it, the Cheltenham Festival is a fantastic event and we can’t wait to take you there.
