FUN ACTIVITIES

The busy racing centre of Middleham has been home to racehorses in training for more than 200 years. The town’s racing industry continues to thrive with 400 plus winners having been trained there each year for the past 38 years. There are currently 15 training yards located in and around the town.

There are lots of places to eat and drink in Middleham with a great selection of cafes and pubs. There are also many lovely places to stay. Please see www.middlehamonline.com for more details.

Car parking will be available on Middleham Low Moor, The Busks on Leyburn Road out of Middleham and at Tennants in Leyburn. Please park in one of these designated car parks as there will be no parking in Middleham or at any of the yards. There will be a shuttle bus service running from each car park to each yard location throughout the morning.

Tickets pre-purchased online can be picked up from the Racing Welfare Offices at 1, Victoria House in the Marketplace on the day and also on working days during the week leading up to the event. All you need to do is show your confirmation email.

Tickets can also be purchased on the day from the Racing Welfare Office or at all yard entrances. Brochures will also be available to purchase from these points. Please note that there will be no card facilities to purchase tickets on the day.

Please note that visitor access to Kingsley Park Spa will be by the official open day shuttle bus (no cars or pedestrians will be admitted).

As the organisers of the event, Racing Welfare will be the main beneficiary charity of the Open Day, with a proportion of the funds raised also going to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance charity.

Racing Welfare is the charity supporting the workforce of British horseracing.
