    Thinking (again) of a trip next year. One or two of my lot are interested

    But have heard it gets horribly mobbed. Is this true? Dont mind a crowd but one Cheltenham a tear is enough

    Also, transport accomodation tips would be welcome :)

    Only been a couple of times to the festival and yes it is busy.  The arrangements for reserving a seat are good, inexpensive and worth booking in advance.

    clive,

    The busy days are Wednesday (Plate), Thursday (Hurdle) and the Friday evening meeting has become increasingly popular in recent years (probably due to the influx of bank holiday weekenders). So if you want a bit of comfort avoid those days.

    Sunday would probably be of interest to an English punter… See another of the cross-‘Sea raiders plunder the big 7f handicap!

    The Radisson Hotel is craic central apparently. So if you could bag an early booking of a room there you would be nicely set up. Otherwise commute from Castlebar as I did one year recently!<br>
