The racecourse is easily accessed by road and rail and as this is going to be an extremely busy event, please allow extra time to travel to and from the racecourse. Arrive as early as you can and remember that the funfair, bars and food outlets will remain open after the fireworks until 9pm when the event finishes - so stay a bit longer to let the traffic ease. We advise people to car share where possible, make use of public transport or walk if you can.

There is more general travel information on our website which can be seen here but please check local timetables and taxi services before departing.


The nearby parking areas at the racecourse are free but please allow plenty of time to get here. The fireworks display will be an extremely busy event so to alleviate congestion, please allow extra time to arrive and stay on after the display finishes. As mentioned above, we advise people to car share where possible.

Please inform the car parking stewards on arrival if you require accessible car parking.


Funfair & Face Painting

Get ready to be thrilled at the huge funfair! The rides will cater for older kids and teenagers as well as gentler rides for toddlers. The funfair will be open until 9pm and there is a charge for rides. There will also be face painting for younger children in the first half of the evening.. Rather than rush off once the fireworks have finished, stay on to let the traffic ease. The funfair and bars will all remain open until 9pm.

Dress to Impress!

This year, we’re encouraging everyone, whatever age you are, to dress up in your favourite movie or Disney character so we're really looking forward to seeing lots of costumes.


Please check the local forecast before departing and dress accordingly. Wrap up warm and bring waterproofs as this is an outdoor event with limited indoor space. Please note that we don not permit camping chairs being brought on site.


A range of bars and food outlets are available serving tasty bonfire night snacks and drinks. A range of gluten free, vegetarian and vegan food options will be available across the racecourse. Please be aware that no food, drink or picnics can be brought into the racecourse.


We take security and safety very seriously. There will be a strong security presence and you will be subject to a bag search on arrival.

Please be patient and limit the bags you bring. Remember, no food or drink can be brought into the racecourse.

We ask all visitors not to leave bags unattended and to report anything suspicious to a member of staff.



Please remember, the food outlets and bars are card only but we advise you to bring cash for the funfair rides. There are no cash machines on site so please bear this in mind. 


With the exception of Assistance Dogs, dogs are not permitted to enter the racecourse. In the interests of animal welfare, no dogs are permitted to be left in cars and Bath Racecourse politely request that all dogs are left at home.


At this event, no student, OAP or other concessions will be available.


For health and safety reasons, no sparklers or other lit fireworks can be brought into the racecourse.

Thank you for booking tickets and above all, enjoy your time at Bath Racecourse. For any other questions, please contact us.
