Driving Routes (2017)

Driving Routes to the Exhibition

Travel Bulletin - Sunday

We have recently learnt that the British Heart Foundation have changed the weekend of the Warwick Half Marathon this year and it will now take place on Sunday 5th March 2017.


Consequently there will be a number of road closures that will affect visitors travelling from the Stratford direction or down the M40 from Birmingham on Sunday morning who were planning to drive through Warwick.


The race route map can be found here on the BHF website. It starts at Warwick Racecourse proceeds to St Johns (which is on the direct route from the motorway to the exhibition centre) and then proceeds out of town towards Coventry on the north side of Warwick. Road closures commence at 8am around the race course and 8:30 in most parts of Warwick town centre. Full details of the road closures can be found here. There is likely to be traffic congestion in the centre of town as drivers look for parking because at this time of year there is no parking available on the grass at the race course.


We recommend avoiding the centre of Warwick completely on Sunday morning.


If on the M40 do not leave the motorway at junction 15 (Longbridge), if coming from Stratford or Wellesbourne, at the motorway roundabout ignore the Warwick exit and the motorway southbound carriageway to cross the river, just a few hundred meters. Immediately leave the motorway at the next exit junction 14 the A452. At the end of straight link road take the second exit off the roundabout towards Leamington Spa onto Europa Way. Go straight over the first roundabout, (BRW & Volvo dealers on the right), at the next roundabout take first exit effectively straight on, shortly go straight across the next roundabout (2nd exit). Go under the railway bridge and at the traffic lights go straight ahead onto Princes Drive. The railway should be on your right hand side. At the T junction mini roundabout, turn right, the college is on the right so at the traffic island fork right to the car park entrance.



The exhibition venue at the Royal Leamington Spa College on Warwick New Road, CV32 5JE is reached easily from all main driving routes. 

At this point in time we are not aware of any road works that may impact on journeys to the venue. Details will appear here if we are able to provide warning in advance of any planned disruption.
