Leicester Road,


Leicester Racecourse is the perfect family day out. You get to see the sport of kings and be near to some of the great Jockeys and horses.

We have two stands from where you have a view of the whole course, one of which has sheltered seating. Along with this we have our Nelson Suite Restaurant which gives you a table with a panoramic view of the course, TV screens to see the racing being broadcast, Tote betting facilities and of course a fantastic meal to go with it.

There is also our Club Suite which gives you a perfect view of the finishing line and access to the Club Terrace, shared with the Owners and Trainers, which in the summer sun is the best place to sit with a cold drink and enjoy the action.

In 2016 we have some exciting events going on. Starting with our Richard III Stakes. There is also Ladies Day featuring live music from Billy Ocean, Mica Paris, Re-Take That and a celebrity DJ.
