Overview
More
Plumpton is a hidden gem in the world of horseracing. The thrill of Jump racing, the joy of a win, delicious food and drink, and stunning rural backdrop provide a memorable sporting experience for everyone from novice to racing expert. We race 16 times a year between September and May, and with a track just over a mile round (one of the smallest in the country) we offer great viewing of the whole course. You feel as though you can almost touch the horses as they thunder past the winning post on each circuit. You are also likely to be rubbing shoulders with the UK's top trainers and jockeys who regularly come to Plumpton, and we are renowned as a nursery ground for the equine stars of the future.

We had not been to this racecourse before but have been to a number of racecourses in England. Easy to get around, good facilities, food outlets were reasonable and a free racecard was a nice surprise. Would come back.
