About Hexham Racecourse
Hexham Racecourse is located in the north of England near the Scottish border. It’s one of the most rural racecourses in the country and as a result one of the smallest too!
Hexham Racecourse is around 800 feet above sea level, making it one of the country’s highest! It’s also in the moors, which means it offers breathtaking views all around. There are few racecourses more scenic than this. So if you fancy yourself on outdoorsy type of person, this is the venue for you!
Hexham Racecourse only offers Jump racing. The track is one mile four furlongs in length and runs left-handed. This is an undulating track with a tough, steep climb at the end to finish. However, one of the most impressive features of Hexham Racecourse is its natural amphitheatre. At this racecourse, everyone gets a fantastic view!
Unfortunately, Hexham Racecourse has very few big races for fans every year. Their most historic race takes place every year in January though. This is the Maiden Hunters’ Chase. A three-mile one-furlong race which dates back as far as 1907! The purse for this race is relatively small, standing at £10k.
There might not be top-end racing at Hexham Racecourse, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t an excellent destination. For starters, we can’t stress enough how beautiful a location this is. But on top of that, it’s also one of the cheapest venues too! Ticket prices start fro as little as £12 per person, with under 18’s going free with an adult!
Hexham Racecourse has more than enough to keep you entertained all day long too. There are cafes and restaurants for those looking to dine. They have multiple bars, VIP lounges, and members rooms. Plus a marquee site and picnic area! Everything you’ll need for a great day out!
