The home of Jump racing


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™, 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 265,000 racegoers, all of whom are determined to have the time of their lives.
