Wessex Attractions: Newbury Racecourse

Newbury Racecourse has been located at its current site since 1905, though horse races had been taking place in Newbury for 100 years before that, initially at Enborne Heath and, from 1811, at Woodhay Heath.

The racecourse has its own dedicated railway station on GWR's Reading to Newbury line, with occasional services extending to Bedwyn. Special shuttle trains run from Reading on race days.

The Lodge is a hotel located in the grounds of the racecourse estate, two minutes' walk from the station. It is currently closed due to Covid-19.

The postcode, for satnav purposes, is RG14 7PN.
