Overview
More
Following the multi-million-pound redevelopment during the Summer of 2016, Bath Racecourse has become one of the best small racecourses in the UK. Boasting stunning views across the Somerset countryside, Bath Racecourse offers a thrilling day out as well as exceptional hospitality and fine dining. There’s something for everyone with racing hosted throughout the summer from music evenings, Ladies Day and Family Fun Racedays. For something a bit different, The Roof Garden provides a striking setting to enjoy a glass of champagne and if you’re with the family, under 18s are free*.

Access to the racecourse is good, within minutes of the M4 and easy access from Bristol. Good onsite parking although our lift had problems re-entering to pick us up. The entry was easy and plenty of greeters etc and there appeared to be a reasonable...More
