History

Beverley Racecourse has been part of the historic market town of Beverley for over 300 years. In 1752, the Jockey Club was founded and the first Grandstand was built in 1767. Between 1813 and 1833, Squire Watts owned no less than four St. Leger winners, including the famous horse, Altisidora. In the last five decades, we’re extended and modernised the course to offer racegoers top quality racing and excellent facilities, and as we are a not-for-profit organisation, we continue to improve facilities and events at the course every year.

Our Area

Here at Beverley Racecourse we are passionate about Hull & East Yorkshire and are playing an active part in the growth of our region.

Somewhere to go canoeing? One of the best performing independent schools at A Level in Yorkshire? A place where your family can go hill walking one weekend and play on a beach the next? A location where you can afford to choose between a beamed cottage in a picturesque village or a large family home on the estuary? Low commute to work times and a place with a lot of sky? Michelin starred pubs for that perfect Sunday lunch or candy floss at one of Europe’s largest fun fairs?  Perhaps a day at the races…Life is made up of so many things, but whatever a great quality of life means to you, we’re pretty certain you are going to find it here.

One of the largest market towns and arguably the most popular, our home Beverley is steeped in history, yet has the fastest broadband speeds in the country. Cobbled streets, a majestic Minster, designer boutiques and a thriving café culture housing mean this is a must see destination. Did you know it was voted one of the best places to live in the UK?
