The Home of Jump Racing

The home of Jump racing


Cheltenham Racecourse is the Home of Jump Racing. A theatre of excellence that really can elevate you to a sporting high.


Cheltenham is at the heart of almost every aspect of Jump racing. This is the place where owners, trainers, jockeys, stable staff and breeders dream of having winners. It's the place where the most important races are run. This is where many stars of the future go through the sale ring. But most of all, this is the place where the equine and human champions forge their reputations.


As always, there is much to look forward to in the season, with 16 exciting days of top-class Jump racing. Hundreds of thousands of racing fans come to Cheltenham every year, but you don't need to be an expert to make lasting memories.


The wide variety of experiences range from the relaxed feel of the meetings in October and April to the heady excitement of The November Meeting and the family fun of New Year's Day.


However, the focus of any Jump season is always The Festival™ presented by Magners. The Festival at Cheltenham is the shining jewel in Jump racing's crown. It is four days of magic, magnificence, and madness, played out on a stage framed by the breathtaking vista of the Cotswold Hills. It features a cast of the best horses, jockeys, and trainers playing to an audience of 260,000 people, all of whom are determined to have the time of their lives.


Owned and operated by The Jockey Club, Cheltenham has become the home of one of the most popular racing events in the world.


With a choice of three enclosures, and many different private boxes and hospitality options while watching world-class racing.

Cheltenham Racecourse's renowned conference and events centre are open throughout the year - with many venue rooms available, Cheltenham Racecourse is the perfect venue for any corporate or private event - conferences, meetings, seminars, tradeshows, exhibitions, private dinners, parties, balls, weddings and outdoor events.
