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. With a variety of weekends, evenings and weekday meetings to choose from, including popular family days and music nights, a trip to the races is a perfect addition to your stay in Bath.

This was only my second visit to a race course & it sure didn't disappoint. 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...

Where do I start? The bus provided to take you to the racecourse from bath city centre was due to pick up at 1pm with the first race at 2:05pm, not only was the bus 40 minutes late the bus driver crammed as many people as he could on the bus making it hard for the bus to get up... More

After reading the description, our group of four were really looking forward to this evening. Unfortunately we were sadly disappointed - in terms of value for money, they should be charging £10pp, rather than the £70 fee. Waited for ages to get our drinks order and food order taken. When the started finally arrived it was tiny. A dessert spoonful... More

We recently booked a race sponsorship package for our business and found the whole experience to be very positive. The package included an exclusive named race plus product placement opportunity on the day with supporting advertising in the race card and on the various media around the course. The staff were very accommodating, both in the planning stage and on... More

The Bath Ales real ale bar was a real find at this racecourse. It is a small course and the facilities were a bit limited on a weekday evening meeting. However, there was a lovely atmosphere, the parking was well organised and the sun shone! The tannoy was difficult to hear in places but otherwise, hard to find fault.

We picked the Bath Racecourse over any other venue in Bath due to several things. Firstly, the large space offered a perfect amount of room for our 300 guests! The interior was lovely, a standard white 'marquee look' with hard flooring, tables and chairs (with white or black cloths) and chandeliers (on dimmer switches), but we could modify it to... More

We had not been to Bath Racecourse since the late 1980's but decided to take in their May 2015 Bank Holiday Raceday having regularly attended the much larger venues at Newbury and Ascot. Bath's advantage is it is very compact, which means you can very easily see the horses, walk to the betting ring and then back to watch the... More
