Nestled next to Warwick Castle, the racecourse is one of the oldest in the country with racing being traced back to as early as 1694. The sport was introduced to the market town in the hope of attracting wealthy professionals to help rebuild the areas wealth after the devastating Great Fire of Warwick.

Warwick Racecourse became the first course to include a jump race in its programme, establishing Jump racing as it is known today. Lying just a few hundred yards from Warwick Castle, Warwick Racecourse retains its historic charm and character to this day.

The central grandstand incorporates the first stand built in 1808. In 2000 it underwent a £3 million refurbishment, which includes a new restaurant, a betting shop, better disabled facilities, increased viewing steppings and bar facilities.
