Jump racing is back at Hereford Racecourse after four years away! We are delighted to be re-opening on Thursday 6th October with four fixtures in 2016. But we are more than just a racecourse, with flexible space for meetings, conferences, weddings, parties and much more.

This course is opening again for racing in October I believe. I have attended Arabian race days here and although the actual racing facilities seem good and it's a nice course, the public areas are a bit run down. If you look at the stands from the track-side; they're desperate for a lick of paint. There are lovely grass areas... More

Thank you taking the time to leave a review, we hope you enjoyed the Arabian raceday. We are very excited to be re-opening on Thursday 6th October after being closed for 4 years but as you can imagine we have a bit of work to do to get the facilities back up to scratch again, work is currently underway with...

We stopped here on our way back up north from Epsom. The car park is just a field. It was free to get in due to it being an Arabian race day, I would have felt ripped off it we had of paid! The grounds are dated. The bar area is dated. It is in need of immediate TLC. It... More

A fairly vast green space in the north of the city of Hereford. The main "Roman Road" which runs along the northern flank of the city (from east to west as we approached), seemed to be the easiest option for us. We found the parking here to be ample (when opened to the public). A small golf course, leisure centre,... More

Hereford Racecourse is a great place for a day out. Not to expensive. Perhaps not a family orientated day out.

I love horses and anything to do with horse racing and was a regular visiter to Hereford race course. There are not many such amenities in Hereford where everyone of any age can enjoy an afternoon out in this area. It is tragic that it has closed. I think it should be brought back to life and regular race meetings... More

It's a good place to go if you have a hobby of horse racing and like to train/watch horses run. They also occasionally have a fun fair there which is good for the children of the family!

My daughter took part in the Race for Life 2013 at Hereford Racecourse and everyone had a great day. As far as i could see, the racecourse staff were well organised, friendly and helpful. It's a great venue as much of the track can be seen from the stands. Watch and enjoy!

Arabian horse racing is at the racecourse. What a fantastic introduction to the gee gees! The betting is sensible. The racing is close to the people and exciting. Stated as family friendly there is nothing for a family to do (except keep the ice cream and burger vendor happy) once the kids tire of the grass and the galloping. That... More

This is a place for a quick brisk walk, golfing, football and a good place to walk dogs as well. There are several places where you can park, no toilet facilities.
