Car parking will be available at;

Middleham Low Moor, on the Coverham road out of Middleham (DL8 4RH)

The Busks on Leyburn Road outside of Middleham (DL8 4PP)

Tennants in Leyburn (DL8 5SG)

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.


Pre-purchased tickets can be collected and tickets can be purchased on the day from the Racing Welfare Stand, Car Parks on The Busks or Low Moor and most yards. Brochures will also be available to collect from these points.

Please note there are very limited card facilities on the day and cash is recommended. The closest cash point to Middleham is Leyburn.

Find details on local accommodation and places to eat here.


Well behaved dogs are welcome and should be kept on a lead and cleaned up after. Dogs may not be allowed on the shuttle buses however a lot of the yards are within walking distance and dogs are very much welcome to visit yards. Find out more about our dog policy here.


The open day itself is accessible and there are several yards that are flat and wheelchair-friendly. There are some yards that the ground isn’t as level or safe however the majority of those in the town of Middleham should be safe. There is disabled parking at Middleham Key Centre (Park Lane, Middleham, DL8 4RA) which is right in the heart of the town.

We recommend visiting yards such as Charlie Johnston (Kingsley and Warwick House), Neil Mechie and Micky Hammond as they should be the most accessible and flat.
