A wonderful afternoon out without having to spend any money. Most race meetings are free and you can put on a bet for £2. Other race goers are a friendly bunch of folk and always happy to chat if you are on your own.there are reasonably priced outlets for eating .the best is probably below the old stand where they...

I always go in hospitality in the emporium stand. it's £69 for a 3 course dinner with afternoon tea and gives you private viewing over the finishing line. It's well worth every penny esp in the winter months and when it's raining. Towcester is an excellent track to watch racing and from this stand you can see the whole track.... More

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.
