The Racecourse
YO23 1EX
The age-old tradition of pitting the speed and stamina of horses against each other, not to forget the variety of human skills, talents and passions which influence each race, has always appealed to man. The great variety of passions and sense of purpose which circumscribe the history of equestrian sport are all contained in the their most beautiful and appealing form at York Racing.

The racecourse itself is thought of as one of the finest in the world, and has consistently been rated one of the top ten in the United Kingdom.

It couldn't be a more historically rich venue for such a sport, since the city has a heritage directly linked to the Romans, who are popularly credited with being the first people to formerly stage horse races.

Many come to the racecourse simply to enjoy the pleasing atmosphere of the Course Enclosure. This is the most economical option for many who bring the whole family and hope to spend the day in marvellous expansive grounds, perhaps with a picnic.

No matter which area of the York Racing racecourse you find yourself situated in, you're going have a day filled with fun and the power and grace of equestrian sport. With all the bookies in the betting ring and the many totes, you'll never be far from those with your winnings.

But a day of equestrian sport is about far more than a wager. From all the places to eat and drink, in both the Grandstand area and the County Stand, to the seemingly endless areas of activity, the options for pleasure are many.
