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.

Everyone gets a 'grandstand' view here. Bonus. Go in the car - free parking, leave it overnight and collect the next day. Bus from Debenhams' in the... More

The meeting we attended was on a summers evening in August....typically it was windy, wet and chilly, but we still had a great afternoon's racing, and my daughter loved it that you could get up close to the horses in the Parade Ring.

Planned a visit on Ladies Day, and although we visit through the year, we booked into Silks Restaurant to celebrate a special anniversary, and enjoyed a truly excellent day. The food was amazing, the service excellent, nothing was too much trouble and the atmosphere brilliant. The staff went out of their way to make our day special, and it was.... More

I visited Bath Races 40 years ago, and I thought a return visit was due as we were staying nearby. It was sad to see that the course facilities are pretty much the same. My local courses are Warwick, Stratford, Towcester and Cheltenham. I found it odd that Bath were charging £23 to go into Tatts, much more than most... More

Just had a work function for 20 people in a corporate box which was right on the finish line. With such a good view who could want more for a place to have a flutter. The staff were so helpful and courteous. There was not a single person in our group who hasn't raved about how brilliant it was.

Had a great day out at bath races, Pint is £4, which is standard, and they had plenty of Ciders on show - entry to the middle of the race course was only £10 and well worth it - you could take your own beer if you wanted too. Staff were helpful and the Wurzel's put on a fantastic show!... More
