This makes it perfect for a family day out, or even one on your lonesome if you’re looking for a exciting time in your own company!

The 1 mile 2½ course itself is challenging for horse and jockey alike, which can make for some great races and inevitably excitement for spectators. It has a four furlongs home straight, making for competitive races that often favour front runners.

Alongside this, the racecourse hosts a number of other fixtures throughout the year, so it’s also an option if you’re looking for a day at the races.
