Market Rasen

Located in Lincolnshire, Market Rasen is this county’s only racecourse. It has become particularly popular with families looking to enjoy a day at the races and those seeking to experience the sport within an idyllic setting.

The Racecourse

Market Rasen consists of three principal enclosures, each of which is designed to provide the visitor with a unique racing experience. The County Enclosure is the most popular. On a sunny afternoon, visitors will be provided with a stunning view of the course.

In addition, they will be able to make use of the Enclosure’s many facilities. These include the Brocklesby Suite Restaurant and Bar, which is well-known for its delicious a la carte dishes. Other facilities include County Bar and the Green Champagne & Seafood Bar. Here, champagne may be bought at a very competitive price of £19.99 per bottle. However, please note that food may only be consumed in these restaurants and in the Family Enclosure and Picnic Car Park.

The Tattersalls Enclosure provides a good view of the Parade Rings and the Winners’ Enclosure. If you’d like to make a bet on a particular race, you’ll be able to find race bookmakers here. The Family Enclosure is located furthest away from the key podiums such as the Winners’ Enclosure.

Nevertheless, the enclosure does offer good opportunities for race viewing. A number of bookmakers are also located in this arena. Market Rasen has always been keen to cater for its younger visitors and, as a result, the Family Enclosure also contains a well-equipped and fully supervised play area.
