Newbury Racecourse is delighted to offer readers the chance to win a wedding worth £10,000

Established in 1905, Newbury Racecourse is not your average wedding venue in any sense of the word. With impeccable service and impressive attention to detail, it became the first UK racecourse to retain the Racecourse Association Excellence Accolade for Customer Service for three consecutive years.

The Racecourse offers a picturesque, distinctive and relaxing backdrop for small, medium and large weddings, along with on-site accommodation at The Lodge and an award-winning culinary team offering flexible packages from traditional wedding breakfasts to barbecues on the terrace.



A dedicated wedding co-ordinator is assigned to each couple, offering full support throughout the entire planning process, helping them design and deliver their perfect event. 

Newbury Racecourse’s flexibility suits any size and style of occasion, from intimate wedding breakfasts of up to 40 guests in the Royal Box, to light and airy receptions of up to 220 guests in the Owners’ Club, to self-catered weddings of up to 550 guests in the Racegoers’ Suite.
