Huntingdon Flooding FAQs

In December 2020 Huntingdon Racecourse experienced one of its worst floods for over 20 years, resulting in damage to many of the ground floor facilities. Subsequent floods occurred during January and February 2021, which caused further damage, led to the abandonment of several fixtures and slowed down the recovery process. Happily, the racing surface was not adversely affected and racing was able to resume behind closed doors during the latter part of the season.

As the racecourse sits on a floodplain, it is unfortunately not possible to completely prevent future floods. We have reinstated all our facilities using more resilient materials, to allow quicker recovery after flooding incidents.

We would like to make you aware that works to improve the exterior of the main grandstand are ongoing and will mean that small sections of the trackside viewing steps will be out of action due to the required scaffolding. There will also be some scaffolding on the parade ring side of the Grandstand at various stages over the course of the first part of the race season.


There remains plenty of track side viewing in the remainder of the Grandstand and on the steps of the Cromwell stand and we are working hard to ensure the works are completed as quickly as possible to enhance your raceday experience.
