UK Race Courses


Our comprehensive list of horse racing courses in the United Kingdom features both flat and jump venues. If you need to contact someone at Aintree in order to score early tickets to the Grand National, or perhaps you merely want the telephone number at Ascot in order to confirm your place at next year's Royal Ascot Festival, then this is the right page.

Horse racing as we know it originated in England and has continued to thrive there at some of the most breathtaking and unique race courses in the world. Whereas some countries have opted for fairly uniform oval tracks the topography of British horse racing remains rather distinct ranging from the straightforward Rowley Mile at Newmarket to the bone-jarring undulations of the hilly Epsom Downs.

We certainly have not forgotten the epic venues for jump racing like Kempton Park or Cheltenham, and this list also includes the great courses of Ireland like The Curragh and Leopardstown. Each race track review aims to be informative both about the past and the present, giving interesting historical details about the stages for some of the world's greatest horse races and also doling out more pragmatic info that will help today's punters find their way in a more literal sense.

UK horse racing can be bet on at the courses, and there is no substitute for a day at the races at locations like glorious Goodwood or historic Doncaster, but we're also here to point out ways for you to bet on UK racing from the comfort of your own computer. We've assembled a list of the leading online book makers and horse racing betting exchanges to this end.
