Amazing histroy right under your feet, Super views of the racecourse, the river, the famous clock, the canal and railway plus lots more. Beware though, quite a bit of up and down over bridges.

Loads of car parks in the centre, Grosvenor Hotel car park entrance - 1 mins to walls. Law Courts / river area car parks - 1 mins to wall. Race course / Market area car parks (lots of them) - 1 mins to walks - hope this helps
