Make a day of it and come and enjoy the races with Premier Tickets & Preview Admission available at just £22.40, whilst Grandstand & Paddock tickets plus the preview are just £18.40.

Don’t miss out on the excitement of a day at the races, and don’t forget, there’s a free racecourse tour an hour before the first race – meet outside the weighting room for a look at the behind the scenes areas you wouldn’t otherwise get to see.

The first race is off at 2:20pm and this day always has a really competitive racecard so is a great day to enjoy for new fans to the sport as much as racing aficionados. Tickets cost from £13 if booked in advance, with pre-booked Grandstand and Paddock tickets available from just £10 each for groups of ten or more.

A free bus to the racecourse leaves Exeter St Davids at 12.40pm and Exeter Bus and Coach Station at 12.55pm and returns 30 minutes after the last race.
