Fontwell Park Races
Racing takes place throughout the year, and while the races may not be of the very highest quality, Fontwell is a good afternoon or evening out.
The racecourse itself is laid out in a figure of eight, which makes it unique among current UK racecourses and while the facilities may not be as plush as some of the richer courses, there's a good feeling about the place.
Fontwell Park is now owned and operated by Northern Racing, who also own Bath, Brighton, Chepstow, Great Yarmouth, Hereford, Newcastle, Sedgefield and Uttoxeter racecourses. Northern have done a great job of making the most of the facilities they have at Fontwell. The venue now hosts all sorts of concerts, car boot sales, corporate entertaining, conferences and parties.
You can even get married at Fontwell.
Fontwell is well liked by racegoers and has won the Racegoers Club poll for Best Small Racecourse in the South East 17 years running. In Boxing they might have called that particular contest off by now.
