THE CHELTENHAM FESTIVAL

BOOK YOUR TICKETS TO THE JUMP RACING EVENT OF THE YEAR

15 - 18 MARCH 2022

Four extraordinary days of racing from Tuesday 15th to Friday 18th March 2022. Featuring 14 Grade One races across four seven-racecards as the best horses, trainers and jockeys go head to head.


Each of the 28 races offers something to savour and we look forward to enjoying the action with you in 2022. 


Our racecourses continue to operate on a ‘cashless’ basis, including concessions. However, cash may be used when placing bets with all on-course bookmakers.

Re-watch The Nightcap, where Chris Hughes was joined by different guests throughout the week as he reviewed the day's racing.

We will be updating all customers regarding our booking procedures for children aged five and under before the new year. A full-priced ticket will need to be purchased for children aged six and over.
