A Day at the Races
A warm and friendly welcome always awaits at Northumberland's only racecourse.
Situated 600 feet above Hexham the steeplechase course hosts 14 race meetings a year.
The season runs from spring to autumn with several weekend, bank holiday fixtures and popular evening meetings. A full list of the meetings can be found here.
Hexham Racecourse takes full advantage of a natural amphitheatre of sloping grass below the stands to provide superb viewing of racing as well as the magnificent surrounding countryside.
Excellent viewing areas are also provided for people with disabilities, with lift access to all parts of the stands.
