Ripon Racecourse


Boroughbridge Road
N Yorkshire


Tel: 01765530530


Horse racing in Ripon, North Yorkshire takes place at what is affectionately termed Yorkshire's Garden Racecourse - Ripon Racecourse.

As you can imagine, Ripon Racecourse is in a beautiful spot, in a diminutive market town whose medieval cathedral makes it one of the oldest cities in England.

There has been racing at Ripon Racecourse for around 300 years, with more than £850,000 in prize money set to attract some of the best horse racing talent in the country, man and beast.

You'll find all the action is situated close to the A1, 11 miles north of Harrogate.


Ripon Racecourse offers 17 meetings for you to be a part of in this season along with several special events which include three family days, Ladies’ Day along with top feature racedays such as ‘The William Hill Great St Wilfrid’ in August & the opening of the Go Racing in Yorkshire Summer Festival in July.

Please visit our website for more information.
