If it’s an equine experience you’re after then you won’t go wrong if you decide to visit Pontefract Racecourse. The racing season which begins in April and ends in October is crammed full of themed days so if you don’t fancy a flutter you’re still guaranteed a great time!

Celebrate everything Yorkshire at the Flat Cap and Whippet Family Day, grab your leg warmers and boogie on down to 80’s night and flaunt your frock at Ladies Day.

With excellent views of the course from all of the enclosures, the option of private boxes; a selection of dining delights and entertainment for all it really is a great way to spend a day!
