Experience a Day at the Races

Nothing beats a day at the races. Enjoy the hospitality and atmosphere, collect your winnings and celebrate in style at Beverley Racecourse. Set in the stunning surroundings of Beverley Westwood, Beverley Racecourse hosts horse racing between April and September every year, and has been doing so for over 300 years.

There are 19 race meetings in total per year, 11 of which feature extra entertainment and fun, from the family-themed May Day with a petting zoo and funfair rides to the glamour of Ladies' Day. For the racing fan, the Very British Raceday in June sees some of the country's best two-year-old horses battle it out in their preparations for Royal Ascot in a fast and furious contest up our infamous uphill 5 furlong sprint (a furlong being about 660 feet for the as-yet uninititated.)

If you haven’t been racing before, there is nothing like the thrill of seeing your horse pass the winning post – particularly if you have had a bit of a flutter with the bookies. First class racing views and dining is available on site, just book in advance to ensure a prime position.

There's always a warm welcome at Beverley, and whether you prefer to bring the family with a picnic and a rug or your friends for an afternoon of fun and catching up, you'll find lots of like-minded people enjoying the day and the excitement of watching your horse thundering home.

Tickets in advance are much the cheapest way to visit and can be bought from www.beverley-racecourse.co.uk, along with lots more information about all racedays.
