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.

I was torn between a rating of 3 or 4 here, I would rate it good but not very good. Christmas party venue was nice, with a starlit dance floor and a small Christmassy decoration in the centre of each table with crackers. DJ and the music was good.

Great place for some family fun and a punt for the adults. We went on a family day, so the children mingled with other children, and everyone enjoyed themselves.

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.

We visited on gentleman's day as part of a stag do in Bristol, you can get a shuttle bus from just outside Bath station so it's very easy to get to.
