Wessex Attractions: Castle Combe

Castle Combe is primarily known as a motorsports venue, but the Cotswold village from which the racetrack takes its name has repeatedly been voted one of the most picturesque in England.

The racetrack has been Wessex's premier venue for motor racing for 65 years. The circuit is 1.85 miles long.

The village is regularly used as a location for film and TV, most recently in Steven Spielberg's War Horse. The church of St Andrew dates back to the 13th century and the Market Cross (currently undergoing restoration at the time of writing) from the 14th.

The postcode, for satnav purposes, is SN14 7NG.

  1. Hi, Sorry, I do not understand why you state that “The racetrack ……. is open from 9am to 5.30pm, Mondays to Fridays (closed weekends).”
    The circuit is regularly used at weekends for race Meetings and car boot sales

    1. Ah, my apologies. I had clicked on the page marked “Opening Hours” on their website, but this appears to be for the office. I will go back and remove the offending sentence.
