Famous as the home of jump racing, Cheltenham Racecourse is home to the Cheltenham Festival (second only in prize money to the Grand National itself). This historic track doubles as an extremely well-equipped event and party venue, able to meet almost any brief thanks to its numerous versatile spaces. These include private boxes, suites, boardrooms and exhibition spaces, many overlooking the track and/or the beautiful Cotswolds countryside. Able to host any size of party between two and 2,400, the venue has welcomed famous musical and comedy acts as well as distinguished political speakers. Tours are available for those who would like to explore the venue firsthand.
Cheltenham’s private boxes are ideal for more intimate events such as meetings and drinks receptions, each offering a unique view of the track. These come with free parking, free WiFi, optional breakout rooms and purpose-built meeting facilities. The Panoramic Suite, meanwhile, can host up to 300 for a breakfast meeting, celebration or private party and boasts its own bar. For a more historic setting, the Hall of Fame is a stunning space for up to 500 guests and can be used for a drinks reception or exhibition.
The largest space is The Centaur, which can host up to 2,250 seated guests, celebration catering or a wedding reception for up to 800, the racecourse’s own Christmas parties, concerts and more.
