Racing

Cotswolds activity horse racing
  • All year except Christmas Day and Easter Sunday
  • The fabulous Thoroughbred race horse was invented in 18th century England and subsequently exported around the world. Racing remains a hugely popular sport, not least because it is a very sociable day out. Live music, parades, shopping and children's entertainment is usually available, together with a diverse range of food, all wrapped around the exhilaration of the racing itself. The year is divided between flat racing in the warmer months and jump racing mainly in the colder ones. With more than 60 racecourses, each with its own unique character and atmosphere, it is always possible to find a meeting to enjoy.
  • Our Racing Package will include entry tickets, official race programme and a host of possible hospitality upgrades. Your expert guide can explain what is happening, show you the best viewpoints for each race, help you have a flutter. You can get close to the action, watching the horses before and after they run, observing their connections and enjoying the thrill of your pick coming home first. Dining might be arranged at one of the racecourse restaurants as part of the experience but there is plenty of ‘street food’ to try and that is part of the fun. Packages start at approximately £80 per person, depending on group size and hospitality options.
  • Cotswold Horse Tours can arrange a morning visit to a local Trainers Yard to see behind the scenes and watch the horses on the training gallops. Often located in scenic countryside, it is easy to combine such visits with other activities in the day. Cost starts at approximately £80 per person, depending group size
