Ripon Races

Sport & Leisure, Sports Venues


Hosting some of the most exciting, prestigious and enjoyable racing in the country for more than 300 years, Ripon Racecourse never fails to impress year on year with its outstanding back drop and exciting atmosphere. Ripon Racecourse, commonly referred to as the ‘Yorkshire’s Garden Racecourse’, is in one of the country’s most beautiful and historic cities. Ripon is one of the oldest cities in England, boasting a market that stretches back centuries, which makes it a great place to visit.

As one of the few racecourses to boast a permanent giant screen, which was replaced in late 2015, racegoers are able to enjoy full away racing action and replays.  

Ripon Racecourse offers its own betting operator in RiponBET, with a high level of personal interaction and customer service, alongside competitive and different bet types. RiponBET enables Ripon Race Co Ltd to reinvest back into the racecourse facilities, such as a new big screen and the newly renovated Claro Suites, just a few of the projects benefiting from the RiponBET service.

Your experience can easily be combined with a visit to one of the many local attractions and to nearby Harrogate.

The Racecourse is proud to have retained their title of ‘Best Small Racecourse in Northern England’, as voted by the Racegoers Club.

Ripon Races is a location used for the filming of All Creatures Great and Small, for more information on other locations go to
