Windsor Racecourse

Home > Sports Venues > Windsor Racecourse

Windsor Racecourse, also known as Royal Windsor Racecourse is a thoroughbred horse racing venue located in Windsor, Berkshire. It is one of only two figure-of-eight courses in the United Kingdom, the other being at Fontwell Park.

Flat racing takes place at Windsor 26 times a year from April to October. In the summer, regular Monday evening fixtures and theme nights attract large and enthusiastic crowds, and you can even travel to the racecourse by riverboat!

Fantastic theme nights for 2010 include: South Africa Night, Ronnie Scotts All Stars, Ladies Night, Irish Night, Caribbean Night and there are also 3 great Family Fun Days, including the Football Furlong Family Fun Day.

We have three fantastic enclosures to watch the racing from - The Club Enclosure, The Grandstand Enclosure and The Silver Ring Enclosure. All these areas have Tote betting facilities, bookmakers, bars, catering facilities and allow access to the Centre of the Course where you can be right at the heart of the action.
