About York

York Races

York Races is the perfect location for your group to enjoy a day at the races.

Our York Races packages makes the day out even easier as we organise all the transportation, tickets, bubbly, group photos and all the pre-races fun! We will then let you enjoy the rest of the day at York Racecourse.

Whether you are a group celebrating a birthday, hen party or just a day out with friends, our Raceday Package is ideal, with our reps are on hand before racing, to help you enjoy your day out. York Races is popular throughout the summer period, including the famous Ebor meeting in August, the Dante Festival in May and John Smith's Cup Day in July. If you are looking for a value day out, enjoy the racing and music event in July, which features a live concert after racing too! In 2015, Scouting For Girls and Tom Jones played liver after racing!

Our packages start from £45pp and leave the organisation of it all to us!

Where to Drink?

If situated in the County Stand, the Champagne Lawn is the place to be, but make sure to grab an early pitch! If you are looking for a quieter place to buy a drink, try the Theakston's Bar underneath the old Silver Ring stand. Queues tend to be smaller here with a variety of drinks on offer here too.

Where to Eat?

York Racecourse has of course vast amounts of fast food outlets and vans for you to choose at leisure but we find that for a more relaxed option of dining is the Knavesmire Restaurant which is situated at the back of the Knavesmire Stand. It is a self-service cafeteria but features good quality food at a reasonable price. There is plenty of seating available here and a great place to settle for half an hour or so.

When best to go??

York's Saturday meetings are the busiest and the atmosphere is electric at times. The John Smith's Cup meeting at the beginning of July is the busiest and this summer meeting attracts crowds from all over the UK. The Ebor Handicap meeting is the most prestigious in late August whilst at the end of July York host a Racing and Music raceday with a n afternoon of racing followed by a big-name act on stage after racing.
