Beverley Racecourse: Great Racing at the town!
Beverley Racecourse is a thoroughbred horse racing course located in the town of Beverley in the East Riding of Yorkshire, in northern England. Beverley Racecourse is one of the most popular small racecourses in the UK.
Horse racing has been held in Beverley since 1680. Set on the historic "Westwood" area of common land, high above the market town of Beverley, Beverley Racecourse has the perfect location for a rural day out. Beverley Racecourse has modern stands with an uninterrupted view of the mile and a half circuit.
Beverley Racecourse has a crowd capacity of 12,000.
Beverley Racecourse has a right-handed 1 mile 3 furlong oval that is generally galloping. It has a very stiff 5 furling course. High numbers have an advantage in races up to one mile. The back straight is downhill and the bend into the home straight is tight. The final 3 furlongs is a steep uphill climb. The 5 furlong races begin on the extension of the home straight and are uphill all the way.
Beverley Racecourse has three different enclosures: a top price Members enclosure, the mid-range Grandstand and Paddock Enclosure, and the Course Enclosure. The Premier Enclosure offers first rate facilities and the best vantage point from which to view the racing. The Grandstand & Paddock Enclosure is the largest enclosure on the course and offers a great range of betting and dining facilities. Meanwhile, the Course Enclosure is located in the centre of the racecourse and offers the best option for a family picnic.
