A trip to Bath Racecourse is an exciting and unique way to spend an afternoon or evening with friends and family. Ideally situated on Lansdown Hill overlooking the picturesque City of Bath, Bath racecourse is just a short bus or taxi ride from the City centre and offers exciting flat racing and premier hospitality. Steeped in history we have been since racing 1811 and host 19 flat racing fixtures between April and October.

A really nice "country" race course set in a lovely part of England. Not easy to find - patience, a map and some enquiries should do it. Good food too

We sponsored a race for a local charity, The Carers Centre and shared a box with colleagues and clients. The facilities and friendliness of the staff were first rate and we and our guests had a very pleasant evening. We recommend other local businesses do this too.

Not a very good quality of racing, facilities are poor, expensive compared to other similar courses. Parade ring is good and you get a good view of the horses walking round. Was in need a makeover.

The race course provided entertainment for kids & big kids alike, be it the clown, who had his weird bikes, face painting etc. There were 7 enjoyable races to watch, the odd wayward horse who tried to runaway & then went on to win the...
