All Weather Racecourses

The UK has a number of all-weather racecourses, which allows racing to take place throughout the year, sometimes in tough racing conditions such as the wind, the rain and even the snow. 

All-weather horse racing, therefore, gives racegoers the chance to attend racecourses in most weather conditions.

Our all-weather racecourses guide explains all the leading racecourses with all-weather surfaces in the UK, reviewing each of them, looking at travel info, fixtures and more.

What is an All-Weather Racecourse?

An all-weather racecourse is a race track with an artificial surface designed to be used all year round.

These all-weather surfaces for racecourses are becoming more and more popular, as they require less upkeep than traditional surfaces whilst offering the benefit of year-round racing.

All-weather racing is growing in the UK in terms of racecourses and also the standard of racing.
