2017 Season OpenerSaturday 15th April 2017

Racing at Brighton is back for another wonderful season! Starting the season off on a high is our first Saturday EVENING fixture in some years. We are excited to open our gates on a weekend to have you all experience the thrill of racing at Brighton.

Our unique course is set high above the sea,  overlooking the vibrant city of Brighton and surrounding countryside and South Downes. The view needs to be seen to be believed! It is the best in Brighton! Infact the Telegraph voted us “one of the best places to watch sport” in the UK last year.

You will see some new things at the racecourse this season which will be jam packed full of entertainment, fantastic dining, and friendly staff. We are known as one of the friendliest racecourses in the UK so if its your first time racing you can be sure this is the place you want to start!

Look forward to seeing you up here on the 19th!


Advanced Ticket Offers, including added value packages, finish at 3pm the day before each raceday. Tickets bought “on-the-gate” will carry a £6 premium per ticket.

Don’t forget that children under 18 come for FREE!


Enjoy a three-course lunch in our Silks Restaurant, ideally situated at the heart of the action, ideal for small groups or individuals who like an upbeat atmosphere.

Reserving a table of raceday hospitality could not be more simple. Select which race day you wish to attend, then choose the most suitable hospitality package from those detailed below. Contact a member of our sales team and they will do the rest.

No alcohol is permitted, only alcohol bought on course can be consumed.

Brighton Racecourse does not operate a strict dress code and suggests smart/casual wear for both Enclosures. Smart Jeans and trainers are permitted. On our feature Racedays however, racegoers do enjoy dressing smartly for the occasion and many Ladies wear hats – which although is not obligatory is still great fun!
