About Nottingham Racecourse

Racing has taken place at Colwick Park since the end of the 19th Century. Up until 1996 it was a dual purpose racecourse of flat and national hunt racing. In the past 30 years Nottingham has established a reputation as a track where trainers introduce classic hopefuls. The highlight of their racing calendar are three listed races and a series of handicap races.

The Nottingham racecourse web site includes a list of upcoming fixtures, dress code, directions and parking, racecourse map, spectator guide and places to stay around the area. It also includes details of venue hire for both business functions and celebrations, such as weddings and private parties.
