How do you fancy a day’s horse racing? Horseracing is a really fantastic fun day out, with the added thrill of the chance to have a flutter and win a few quid (though you could lose a few quid too, as we found to our cost!). And with these organised racing experiences, even the greenest racecourse beginner will be sure to have a great day out.

Where can I go to the races?

A whole host of the country’s top racecourses is at your disposal – you can take your pick from
Great Yarmouth in Lincolnshire, Newmarket in Suffolk, Brighton or Fontwell Park in Sussex, Bath in Avon, Uttoxeter in Staffordshire and Hereford in Herefordshire, Newcastle or Sedgefield in Tyne and Wear, and for those in Wales, there’s of course Chepstow and Ffos Las racecourse. Or if you want to spend time with a top trainer, there’s Hungerford in Berkshire.

But these are only a few. The full list covers practically all racecourses in the UK (see full list below), so there’s sure to be a racecourse near you for your great racing experience.

These are the UK horse racing experiences available, with real time prices so you know you’ve got the best deal.

So what’s the deal?

What’s available on these great days out ranges from visiting the famous National horse racing museum at Newmarket, through spending half a day with a trainer to get the lowdown on behind the scenes, to a visit to a proper horseracing meeting at any one of a number of racecourses where you can make a fortune or lose your shirt – it’s up to you, so do you feel lucky??

Check out the horseracing experiences in the links above for the exact details of each, and when you’ve found the one for you, you can book your ticket there and then. Better still, take a bunch of mates and make a real day of it. You know it makes sense.
