KEMPTON PARK AND THE COMMUNITY
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.
