Kempton Park Racecourse



Kempton Park Racecourse has proudly been at the heart of the Sunbury-on-Thames community since 1878 when businessman S.H Hyde saw 400 acres of land ‘for sale or lease’ between Hampton Court and Sunbury on Thames and decided this would be the perfect location for a racecourse.


We’ve seen some change in our 145 year history. From Royal visits and record 55,000 strong crowds in 1955 to the redevelopment of the state of the art, floodlit All Weather Track in 2006 – we’ve moved with the times and now is the time to put ourselves firmly back in the community.


In 2023, the team at Kempton Park are committed to raising their profile within the local community and helping as many charities and groups as possible in the process.


St Saviours Parish Church & Community Foodbank


We’ve always enjoyed a good relationship with St Saviour’s Church in Sunbury on Thames.

In 2019 jockeys Leighton Aspell along with Jamie & Josh Moore visited the Community Foodbank to find out how it’s an essential part of local life and pack up some food parcels:


“Our Gracie”

Not so long ago we were approached by Tonie & Jenny from St Saviours in Sunbury and told about “Our Gracie”. Gracie is only two years old and has been diagnosed with a rare form of leukaemia.They, along with friends and colleagues of the family from the Community foodbank, decided that organising a sponsored walk was a good way to support the family.

The team at Kempton Park were more than happy to facilitate the walk and will provide advice, security, a safe environment and a support team for the event on the 22nd April at Kempton Park.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for “Our Gracie” and any donations are gratefully appreciated.




More recently, the team served lunch on Maundy Thursday to over 400 members of the local community:

If you’re hosting a charity event, we are supporting local efforts by donating raceday tickets for raffle prizes.


We’re more than happy to give charities a platform to raise awareness by attending our racedays and have information desks and bucket collections.
