Following the BHA's announcement on 17th March 2020, all horse racing fixtures will be suspended from 18th March until at least the end of April. Read our News section for more information.
At Bath Racecourse, under 18's are permitted free entry to most of our fixtures when they are accompanied by a ticket-holding adult. There aren't many places you can take the kids for free, so make the most of this amazing deal and enjoy a day of racing fun with the whole family. Many of our fixtures also provide free attractions such as fun fair rides, bouncy castles and face painting so there's more than enough to keep the kids entertained.
Bath Racecourse’s unique take on family fun days has proven popular year after year, and saw it win awards in 2018. With free entry for under 18s and free entertainment, the day can be cost effective as well as action packed with cool things to do with the kids.
We offer free family entertainment at selected events throughout the year. Please check this years' events for more details, but previously entertainment has included inflatables, face painting, Go-Karts, Derby Hoppers and fun fair rides all included in the days ticket price. This is of course alongside an action packed day of racing for the whole family to enjoy.
At the end of 2018, Bath Racecourse was announced the winner of the Best Event at the Racecourse Association Showcase Awards for our ‘Kids Takeover Racing’ family fun day. Described as a fantastic opportunity for young people to discover more about the racecourse, children involved got to try out TV presenting, commentating and photography.
