Greater Anglia is running additional services for racegoers attending Newmarket Races 2000 Guineas Day on Saturday 6 May.

The following services will run in addition to the normal timetable:

  • 10.10 Ipswich to Cambridge, calling at Stowmarket 10.21, Bury St Edmunds 10.37 and Newmarket 10.56.
  • 12.09 Cambridge to Ipswich, calling at Dullingham 12.27, Newmarket 12.32, Bury St Edmunds 12.50, Stowmarket 13.05 and Needham Market 13.10.
  • The train is a handy way to travel to the event, especially as Newmarket Racecourse also operates a complimentary shuttle bus between Newmarket railway station and the racecourse. Full details are available on the Newmarket Racecourse’s website.

James Reeve, Greater Anglia Area Customer Service Manager, said: “We always try and support local events if we can. We know this day is very important to many of our customers, which is why we’re running additional trains.

“To save time and beat the queues, passengers are advised to buy tickets online or via the Greater Anglia app before they travel. Groups of three of more people can save a third on fares with GroupSave.

“Our new trains are longer and have more seats. However, we would ask everyone to be patient while boarding as we are expecting higher than usual passenger numbers on these services.”

There is no planned engineering work on the King’s Coronation Day Saturday 6 May, and all services are due to run as normal. Trains will run with the maximum number of carriages available.
