Where Is Ffos Las Racecourse?

Ffos Las Racecourse is in South Wales, situated just off the A484 between Llanelli and Carmarthen. Set in a rural area of Carmarthen, the racecourse is clearly signposted on your approach. We have detailed instructions below of how you can find us by your preferred mode of transport. If you are driving to visit us, the postcode for your satnav is SA17 4DE.

There are a multitude of ways to travel to Ffos Las Racecourse. When we asked Mike Parcej, a friend of the racecourse and passionate horse racing fan, here's what he had to say:

"Surprisingly well served by a daily bus route (except Sundays) between Carmarthen and Llanelli - the 197 bus departs from Llanelli Bus Station every two hours from 0720 to 1720 then 1820, and from Carmarthen Bus Station from 0820 to 1620, then 1810. Annoyingly the last return bus to Carmarthen is 1542, but the last returns to Llanelli are 1647 and 1837. For keen walkers, the racecourse is a 45 minute walk from Kidwelly railway station, a local stop between Llanelli and Carmarthen."

Top Tips

We advise arriving an hour and a half before the first race to avoid the busiest times for traffic if you are heading here by car. If you’re grabbing the shuttle bus from the train station, check your return times as the buses don’t always align with the trains. And finally if you’re getting a taxi, always pre-book for a confirmed pick up point - this helps you get home on time, and saves our neighbours from a lot of stress.
