Chelmsford City Racecourse

Chelmsford City Racecourse, located near the village of Great Leighs, North Chelmsford has been open since 2015 for all year round horse racing fixtures. Boasting state of the art floodlights and a bespoke Polytrack surface, the racecourse is currently installing a turf track to make the venue the only floodlit, all-weather and turf horse racing track in the UK.

With the addition of ‘black type’ races in 2018 and 2019, and offering the highest prize money of the all-weather racing tracks in the UK, Chelmsford City Racecourse attracts top trainers and jockeys to provide an exhilarating racing experience. Horses who have raced at the track have gone on to win at Royal Ascot and Glorious Goodwood.

Racing under our signature champagne fluted floodlights throughout the Winter months or experiencing a garden party feel in the Summer, there are two restaurants and a Sports Bar offering a variety of hospitality packages to cater for everyone. Corporate reservation options are also available together with additional experiences such as behind the scenes tours and trips to the racing starts available to book too!

The extensive venue is also available to hire on non-racedays for exhibitions, conferences, functions and parties and offers a modern, flexible space with award-winning staff and customer service excellence.
