Towcester Racecourse, one of the country's most scenic National Hunt Racecourses, provides a stunning setting for business or pleasure. There are a variety of hospitality and race sponsorship packages available, enabling you and your guests to watch the racing in elegant and comfortable surroundings, whilst enjoying the thrilling spectacle of racing 'over the sticks'. Such a pretty place

I live locally and visit this racecourse often. It is normally free to get in though there are a few meetings where it is £10 to get in. That is still good value for what they provide though. The views of the racing are great and the other views of the countryside are exceptional. The bars are often busy but... More

The action is all close to hand when you are at the track and the views are gorgeous on a sunny day. Good idea to drop into the Towcester Museum if you arrive early. There's an interesting video and model of Boudica's last battle, which happenned just to the south of the racecourse.

In a lovely setting with plenty of challenges for horses. Very friendly with good viewing. Excellent country venue and enough facility to while away an evening or afternoon racing.

Was invited to a corporate lunch today. Arrived in time. Ordered a few drinks. They took 45 mins to arrive. No water on the table and the gap between mains and starter was 90 mins !!!! The races started before lunch finished. Food was below average and the corporate side of things was a shambles. Glad I did not pay.... More
