Come to Beverley Racecourse and see for yourself why we’re consistently ranked in the top 12 courses in the country. As well as a superb season of flat racing, many other events take place here from festivals to proms and weddings, drawn by the glorious surroundings, beautiful facilities and site steeped in history.
Heritage Open Day will give you an opportunity to not only experience this for yourself, but also give you an exclusive peek at the different and fascinating behind the scenes areas that make up a racecourse. All the views are terrific, arguably the best of all from the Parade Ring building overlooking the course, the town and the Wolds.
There has been annual racing on Westwood since 1767 when the first grandstand was built: that has long been replaced by much larger modern and beautifully appointed buildings. On Heritage Open Day there will be guided tours of the course to explain the mysteries of The Sport of Kings to you – and hopefully inspire you to return on a race day to hear the thunder of hooves, the roar of the crowd and the beauty of a thoroughbred in full flight for yourself.
