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*.

Track was unfit for racing. They cancelled 3 of the 7 races at the last minute. No consideration for horse wealthfare and some horses from the remaining races pulled out by owners/trainers, even the prize money for walking round was not deemed acceptable. Management only...More
