Thirsk Racecourse is one of the finest in Yorkshire and we are very proud of our heritage and history.

As a forward-thinking and progressive venue, we continue to build on the region’s long and rich association with horse racing, providing the modern and family-friendly facilities for which we are renowned and which today’s racegoers rightfully demand. Conveniently located at the heart of North Yorkshire, Thirsk Racecourse is one of the country's most picturesque, with its attractive architecture complemented by beautifully kept lawns and flowered gardens.

Thirsk Racecourse has broad appeal, providing excellent public facilities for racegoers, superb hospitality facilities and catering, a wonderful family day out (with lots of children's entertainment in the summer) and, of course, with good, competitive flat racing at the heart of every race meeting.

Thirsk also provides the perfect year-round venue for a wide variety of events, especially weddings and other family celebrations, as well as conferences, banquets, Christmas parties, concerts, charity functions, sports events, exhibitions, markets and caravan rallies. Our main wedding, conference and banqueting suites, coupled with our exceptional customer care and catering standards, rival the best in the region.
