Beverley Racecourse first opened its doors in 1690 where thousands of visitors through the years have enjoyed a day’s racing at the iconic Westwood track. It is renowned for its famous hill, allowing for a stint as an airbase during the war, when the track actually became a runway!
Why not become part of the future story? You can experience a trip into the past with the whole family at Bygone Beverley in May, glam it up at one of the county’s top Ladies’ Days or marvel at the fastest horses on Beverley Bullet Raceday. Whether you want to sip champagne in the stylish Premier Enclosure or enjoy a picnic right in the heart of the action in the Course, whoever you bring along, you’ll have a hugely enjoyable day out.
Entry ranges from £4-£28 if you pre-book and under 18’s go free. Alternatively, if treating yourself is your thing, we have superb hospitality rooms where you will be wined, dined and seated high above the raceday crowds. Whatever you choose, we hope to see you soon!

Beverley was a major horse training base in the 18th & 19th centuries. Indeed, Squire Richard Watt bred and trained many famous winners from his base nearby Bishop Burton, including four St. Leger winners- Altisidora (1813), Barefoot (1823), Memnon (1825) and Rockingham (1833).
