Racecourse Information

The History

Southwell Racecourse is a thoroughbred racing venue, located near Newark-on-Trent. In 1989 it became an all-weather racecourse and is now one of only 5 racecourses in the UK to have an all-weather track and is the only one with a fibresand surface. The unique fibresand surface is deep and so makes the track a good stamina test. National Hunt racing is also held at this venue. Situated just 7 miles from Newark and 15 miles from Nottingham and set in 145 acres of beautiful Nottinghamshire countryside, Southwell Racecourse is a stunning location that has been steeped in history since its very first race meeting, on 16th May 1898.
