Britain’s newest racing venue offers thrilling all-weather racing under the mesmerizing light of its champagne fluted floodlights and the venue also highlights its versatility with a huge range of non-raceday events. Since opening in 2015, we have continued to strive for excellence in all areas. We have already won multiple Racecourse Association Excellence Accolades, most recently for Staff Customer Service and Visitor Information, and have reached Finalist status in the RCA Showcase Awards for Best Event (Ladies Day 2017 & 2018) and Digital & Social Media.
The fantastic facilities provide a wonderful setting from which to anchor your raceday experience. The Grandstand boasts two restaurants, one ideal for families, friends and corporate events; the other, a more formal environment and perfect to celebrate special occasions. The restaurants are complemented by the lively Sports Bar and Coffee Shop areas which offer a variety of options to suit all of our customer requirements.
In terms of prize money offered to our racing connections, Chelmsford City Racecourse consistently achieves its aim of sitting near the top of the table with regard to the total value of its racing. In 2018 this was over £5 million, with a similar sum in 2019. The course is reaping the rewards by hosting competitive and exceptional quality races with large fields of runners.
