  • Visitor Information

Kempton ParkThe closest racecourse to London (just 40 minutes from Waterloo by train), Kempton Park has a very different atmosphere to the more rural courses with DJs and discos to keep the crowds entertained, cheap floodlit evening races to attract working punters on weekdays and no dress code beyond a vague adherence to respectability. The most famous races are held during the Christmas Festival on 26th and 27th December, including the King George VI Chase, which was won four times by Desert Orchid. There are around fifty race-days a year, many of them clustered in April and September. Kempton Park is now floodlit so you can enjoy a race as the sun goes down. Grab a pint, place a bet and cheer on your horse from the sidelines, gripping that lucky ticket tight, in case she comes home! A day at the races is a brilliant release from the usual humdrum activities. Between March and April the fixture list is chock-a-block with over 50 races. If you've got kids, you should try one of the family days with a creche and free activities for the little ones.
