York Ebor 2021 Experiences

York is one of the most beautiful and picturesque cities in the whole of the UK and the fact that there is a racecourse here means that you need no more reasons as to why you should visit such a wonderful place.

Located on the Knavesmire on the outskirts of the city centre, York racecourse is one of the oldest courses in the country and the mixture of old and new stands makes for a picturesque backdrop for some of the most exhilarating flat races of the season.

The highlight of the racing calendar has to be the York Ebor Festival which takes place every year in late August and this year, after what has been a turbulent one to say the least, will take place from 18th - 21st August. Established in 1846, the Ebor Festival is held over four days and includes some of the fastest and oldest races in the British calendar.

Fashion plays a major role in the Ebor Festival - for both men and women. The Ebor Fashion Lawn is the place to be spotted and an annual fashion show is held, with the models being race goers. To feature on the catwalk, simply visit the Lawn for timings! Prizes include a trip to Dubai for two and a £500 French Connection voucher.

Getting to Ebor is effortless - there are direct trains to York Station from London King’s Cross, Manchester, Birmingham and Edinburgh. From York station, take the 197 shuttle bus the racecourse, alternatively, it is a short taxi ride away.

York may be known as a medieval town, but it also has a vibrant and diverse array of restaurants - a mix of traditional dining experiences and contemporary bars, ideal for carrying on the post betting celebrations! Melton’s and Bistro 8 are perfect for those looking for a more formal dining experience.
