To Find Site:- Leave M40 at junction 15 and take A429 towards Warwick. In about a mile watch for a left turn into Shakespeare Avenue signed to the Racecourse. At the end of the road turn right into Hampton Street. Continue past Racecourse Stands and turn left into Bread and Meat Close, from here the entrance to the site is in view across the racecourse. If coming from the Coventry direction on the A46 bypass continue to junction 15 and then as above to avoid coming through town.
The Warwick Racecourse site is convenient as itís quite a short walk into the town. Like all racecourse sites it does not quite match up to the normal standard of Club sites but this one probably comes a bit closer. There are 58 pitches on a mix of grass, gravel hardstandings and tarmac. When booking the non-awning pitches they are generally on hardstandings, stone or tarmac, check out the site plan on the CMC website. Depending on conditions motorhome are usually accommodated on the hardstandings. Electric points are convenient to pitches and are rated at 16 amps and use CEE17 blue connectors. The main facilities are located in the reception building including a small laundry room which doubles up as an information point and behind the office is the toilet/shower block which whilst kept perfectly clean is of an older design. A semi enclosed washing up area, but only one sink, fresh, waste water and toilet waste points are situated around the outside of this building. This is only service point on site but there is another tap at the other end of the site. For motorhomes there is a grey water dump point, unfortunately with a heavy metal drain cover which has to be lifted. It is also slightly awkwardly situated if an adjacent pitch is in use. Additionally there is a tap for refilling fresh water tanks. Recycling provision is at the site entrance. There is no WiFi on site, the 4G is reasonable as an alternative. Access to the site will be restricted on Race Days and dates are published on the CMC website.
The major advantage of this site is its close proximity to the centre of Warwick which is a short walk away and the Castle a little further on. If visiting the Castle it is cheaper to buy the tickets online beforehand rather than on the gate. There are many restaurants and takeaways in the town. For food shopping there is an M&S Food store near the Bus Station and a larger Sainsburys within walking distance. For excursions further afield Royal Leamington Spa, Stratford upon Avon and Coventry are within reach by public transport. The actual Racecourse provides the opportunities for walks and for exercising dogs.
