Overview
More
A visit to Beverley Racecourse is a seriously good day out, a fact that the people of Beverley have been quite rightly proud of for over 300 years. Set in the stunning surroundings of The Westwood, the racecourse hosts horse racing between April and September every year. We have 19 race meetings in total, 11 of which feature extra entertainment and fun, from the family-themed May Day with a petting zoo and funfair rides to the glamour of Ladies' Day. For the racing fan, our Very British Raceday in June with its two feature races for the country's best two-year-old horses sees them battle it out in a fast and furious contest up our infamous uphill 5 furlong sprint (a furlong being about 660 feet for the as-yet uninititated.) There's always a warm welcome at Beverley, and whether you prefer to bring the family with a picnic and a rug or your friends for an afternoon of fun and catching up, you'll find lots of like-minded people enjoying the day and the excitement of watching your horse thundering home. Tickets in advance are much the cheapest way to visit and can be bought via our website, along with lots more information about all of our racedays. Let us show you how much fun an afternoon at the races can be! 2017 Fixtures At A Glance Weds 19 April The White Rabbit in Easterland Raceday Thurs 27 April Afternoon Racing Mon 01 May May Day Raceday Tues 16 May Afternoon Racing Wed 31 May Half Term Raceday Sat 10 June A Very British Raceday Tues 20 June 70s Racenight Feat: Bus Stop Tues 27 June Afternoon Racing Fri 07 July Party on the Pasture Racenight Sat 08 July The Big Saturday Raceday Tues 18 July Afternoon Racing Mon 24 July Carnival Racenight Tues 01 Aug Roll Up, Roll Up Raceday Weds 16 Aug Flemingate Ladies' Day Thurs 17 Aug Afternoon Racing Feat: The Camel Derby Sun 27 Aug A Sunday Hop Sat 02 Sep Totepool Beverley Bullet Raceday Weds 20 Sept Afternoon Racing Tues 26 Sept Season Closer
