We've been a part of Beverley for over 300 years. Set in the stunning surroundings of The Westwood, our racecourse hosts flat racing from April through to September every year. We're host to some much anticipated races, including The Hilary Needler Trophy and the Beverley Bullet, and we've some fabulous theme days, from our family friendly May Day Raceday to the glamour of Journal Ladies' Day. These popular events have helped us win national recognition. Whether you're an enthusiast or casual racegoer, family or couple, we offer a friendly welcome, a unique atmosphere and luxurious facilities. You can sip champagne in our Premier Enclosure, treat yourself to a three course meal or enjoy a picnic right in the heart of the racing action.

One of the smaller, more quaint racecourses - but more than makes up for that in atmosphere and good facilities, at a sensible price. Meetings over the summer months are great, particularly if using the course enclosure area. Good dining room, although a little limited in menu selection.

Thanks for the good review, glad you like the course. We know what you mean, the atmosphere is very friendly and our setting is quite traditional but we're very modern and innovative in terms of our facilities and investment in the course, as well as our fun range of theme days. Hope to see you again next year! More

An excellent day out where you can chat with friends have a drink and relax in the sunshine or get caught in the pouring rain and get soaked but if you are a racing fan then its a great afternoon or evening out.

Thank you so much for the great review - we pride ourselves on providing fantastic days out so good to know you're enjoying yourself.

IF you are into horse racing then Beverley is the "friendly course" & has a varied programme over the whole flat racing season. Whether you like a flutter or not it is a great day out on the "Hurn" on the Westwood.

Set high up overlooking Beverley town with a race finish up a long hill. So choose a horse with a low number on the inside which has stamina.It can be breezy up there so wrap up on windy dull days.

Thank you so much for such a lovely review and the great advice for other racegoers. Drinks prices are a tricky one - as we're a venue only open for some of the year we have higher overheads than say, a pub, but we do appreciate cost can be an issue and so do allow people to bring food and...
