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 racing since 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.

Came here for their first fireworks display. Gates opened just before 5.30pm. It was cold, but dry, though the rain earlier had caused the ground to be soggy in places where the fun circus entertainment was going on. Simply rocket fireworks were on offer face painting wise.

Lovely little course, clearly recently updated & very clean & modern.Staff very well turned out & all very helpful & friendly.As it's a small course, I'm not sure how it would cope if packed out, but as most meetings are weekday afternoon & evenings, you can't ask for a better setting.
