Ludlow Racecourse – one of the few privately owned and arguably one of the friendliest racecourses in the country. Racing has been recorded here since 1725 but according to local legend, in the fourteenth century soldiers from Ludlow Castle came here to match their horses. The course retains its Edwardian character and also its strong club atmosphere. Now a National Hunt Course, jumping started in the mid-nineteenth century and we now have at least 16 fixtures per year. This year, our first meeting is Wednesday 5th October 2022.

Situated in the beautiful Shropshire countryside with views of the Clee Hill and beyond, on a good day there is nowhere better to spend an afternoon. It doesn’t matter whether you are a racing enthusiast, or you don’t know anything about racing, a day at Ludlow Racecourse is great entertainment for all the family. Once you have paid us a visit, we know you will want to come again! Disabled access is good in all areas and we positively encourage families to join us. Entrance is FREE for children under 18 years old.

On race days, Ludlow attracts the very top trainers, Paul Nicholls, Nicky Henderson, Kim Bailey, Philip Hobbs to name a few, and is popular with the elite of the jockeys, Harry Cobden, Aidan Coleman and Tom Scudamore. Ludlow prides itself for being friendly and in touch with ‘real racing’ with no formal boundaries and the race goers being able to rub shoulders with the jockeys, trainers, owners and Directors. Historically, Ludlow has always punched above its weight in prize money with over £1 million being allocated annually.

As well as race days, we have great facilities and flexible spaces for Hospitality and Events for the other 300 or so days per year. We are situated just outside Ludlow, off the A49 between Hereford and Shrewsbury and near Ludlow Train Station. We have ample car parking facilities and can accommodate helicopter landings with advanced notice.

Our team of friendly staff are on hand at all times to make your event extra-special so all you need to do is contact us with your requests and leave it up to us. Weddings, conferences, private parties and charity balls, nothing is too much trouble and as the largest venue in South Shropshire, it is worth give us a ring to have a chat.
