Uttoxeter Racecourse

Racing is for everyone. We guarantee a day at the races with us will get your hearts pounding and leave you wanting to come back for more!

Set in the heart of Central England amongst picturesque surroundings, we have been home to the famous Midlands Grand National since 1969 and host a range of jump meetings all year round.

Our bigger feature days are always worth a gamble. Try our glitzy Ladies Night, The John Smiths Summer Cup or our series of Family Fun Days all of which have entertainment (on top of the racing!) and special packages, creating that extra special day.

So whether you are an avid racegoer or a novice, come along and share a perfect day out with family, friends or work colleagues.
