It’s time to shake off the winter and get dressed up in your finest, because spring is finally here! The Season Opening Race Evening at Brighton Racecourse takes place on Easter Saturday (15 April) is the day to start your social calendar off with a bang!
Established in 1783 by the Prince Regent, Brighton’s racecourse is a local icon that must be experienced! On a bright blue sky day the views over the racecourse and out to sea are breath-taking and the excitement of the competitive racing creates such a high. “It is important to us that each person visiting the Racecourse receives fantastic service, enjoys great food and leaves feeling that they have had an amazing time,” said Sam Windridge, Executive Director. “We are rather a friendly bunch here at Brighton Racecourse and are committed to making every visitor feel welcome and looked after. We’ll even help you place a bet if you’ve never done it before – it’s really easy and adds an extra shot of excitement to the day.”
There are many ways to experience the races in Brighton – from the stands of General Admissions to the lounge of the Premier Enclosure to dining in Silks Restaurant – the options for you to choose are varied. One such incredible experience not to be missed is the Behind The Scenes Tour. If you are a newcomer to racing, or just a keen racing fan, who would like to see what goes on behind the scenes of the sport of kings, then this is a great way to experience a day at the races. Your day starts with a glass of bubbly served in the Winners’ Suite, followed by a tour of the racing areas not accessible to the public and an insight into what happens prior to a race meeting. In addition to the welcome drink and tour this package includes a Premier Enclosure admission ticket, race-day programme and a £2 tote betting voucher all for the incredible value of £45.
So with fabulous food and drink, easy access via public transport including a free shuttle bus from Brighton station, free parking and affordable tickets, an evening at the races on Sat 15 April makes for unbeatable fun and a great excuse to get your friends together or treat colleagues to a day out.
