Executive director of Brighton Racecourse Paul Ellison is passionate about offering top-notch entertainment for visitors, saying staff are committed to making everyone feel welcome and looked after.
“We’ll even help you place a bet, if you’ve never done it before. It’s really easy and adds an extra shot of excitement to the day,” he said.
Gates open at 3pm on 24 April for the season opening race evening, with races starting at about 4.30pm and finishing at about 7.50pm.
There are many ways to experience the races in Brighton, from general admissions in the stands, to the lounge of the premier enclosure, or dining in Silks restaurant. An experience not to be missed is the “Behind the scenes” tour, offering newcomers to racing, or confirmed fans, the chance to see more of the organisation that goes into a day’s racing. Or visitors can enjoy the new Great British Afternoon Tea package and sip prosecco while eating dainty sandwiches and desserts – a perfect way to soak up the atmosphere of the historical sport of kings.
With so many fixtures to choose from in 2018, excellent food and drink, easy access via public transport including a free shuttle bus from Brighton station, free parking and affordable tickets, a day at the races makes for unbeatable fun and a great excuse to get your friends together, or treat your staff to a day out.
