Pocket Guide: Stratford-upon-Avon Shakespeare County Raceway Hotels

One of the leading drag racing venues in Britain, the Shakespeare County Raceway was founded in 1973 and is a venue for the British National Drag Racing Championships. It's close to the outskirts of the pleasant market town of Stratford-upon-Avon, which is famous for being the birthplace of the most celebrated and influential playwright and poet of the English language, William Shakespeare. It's also within easy reach of a good selection of Warwickshire hotels, from luxury country retreats to affordable contemporary hotels near the M40.

About the Raceway

At 400 metres long, the venue was previously known as the Long Marston Raceway, and is a popular destination for driving experience courses. Originally an RAF field, visitors even have the opportunity to find out how fast their cars or motorcycles can accelerate on the raceway in an event that is known as the 'Run What Ya Brung' Public Tack Day.

In fact, racing has taken place here since the 1950s, when the Evesham Automobile Club would organise regular quarter and half-mile sprints before drag racing was even heard of in this country.

Other Places to Visit near the Shakespeare County Raceway

Take a day trip to Stratford-Upon-Avon itself, which is the home of the Royal Shakespeare Company Theatre, where you can observe world-class performances of Shakespeare's acclaimed plays. The Shakespeare County Raceway is also within easy reach of the medieval town of Warwick, which is best known for its imposing Norman castle, one of England's most visited tourist attractions.

A Fantastic Range of Attractions and Accommodation

Also nearby is the impressive Palladian house of Ragley Hall, the attractive Regency town of Royal Leamington Spa and its grand Royal Pump Rooms, and Charlecote Park stately home, one of England's finest country mansions. Whether you're staying in an affordable, value-for-money hotel such as The Charlecote Pheasant or a deluxe, high-end venue such as the Ettington Park Hotel in Alderminster, you'll benefit from good transport links to the rest of the country via the M40. Nearby Stratford-Upon-Avon railway station also provides frequent services to central London, Birmingham and other UK towns and cities.
