By Car: Turn into Hexham at the main roundabout on A69 Newcastle to Carlisle trunk road. Cross the river bridge, straight over the roundabout, then over the railway bridge and immediately turn left at the mini roundabout. Pass the Railway Station on the left and then a Matthew Charlton store following the road up to the main Hexham thoroughfare. Turn right at the mini-roundabout and pass the County Hotel on the left. Continue on the main street for 200 yards. Take the turning on the left between a chemist and the Tap and Spile Pub. This is Eastgate. Go up Eastgate for about 400 yards where the road forks. Take the right fork (Dipton Mill Road) and climb steep hill until just reaching the brow (about ½ mile). Turn right here and straight ahead until reaching the racecourse on the left (about ½ mile).
Car Parking: There is ample free parking at the course and disabled parking spaces, which are marked on the above racecourse plan. There is also a special wheelchair viewing section near the paddock. If you required further details please contact the office.
Free Buses provided by the racecourse: On racedays there are two courtesy buses, laid on by the racecourse, which run from Hexham Railway Station and Hexham Bus Station and return from the course after the last race. These run on a 'first come, first served' basis and the pick-up times are shown on the news page a few days before each meeting. The service is run by Tyne Valley Coaches.
Taxis: Advanced Taxis, based in Hexham, also specialise in transporting racegoers to and from the course. You can find out more about the company and book a taxi online on their website www.advancedtaxis.com.
Trains: Hexham Railway station is 2.4miles away.

C-19 Badge

Due to local restrictions in Newcastle and across the North East, local tracks will only be allowed to accommodate a maximum of four badges per runner at upcoming meetings.  In addition, Owners in attendance will only be able to sit with members of their own household whilst indoors. 
Unfortunately there is little flexibility at this time, but these restrictions are in line with all hospitality and leisure venues in the area, and will be actively monitored by the local authority. 

Full details will be included in the emails from PASS that are sent to Owners with declared runners at either racecourse, along with information about the overall experience, including parking, timing and catering.

Owners Facilities

There is a dedicated Owners & Trainers Bar located at the top of the Parade Ring for those who have runners on the day. This bar provides Owners & Trainers with complimentary tea and coffee, bowl of soup and sandwich. Other refreshments are available to purchase.

Owners and Trainers are welcome to book a table in the Pavilion Restaurant, overlooking the racecourse. A table for the day and a four course carvery buffet is available for a discounted price of £68.40 per person (10% discount). Advance booking is essential as regrettably, tables cannot be reserved due to the popularity of this restaurant.

Winning Connections
If your horse is a winner at Hexham Racecourse, you will receive a memento presented by our race sponsor, plus a complimentary photograph and digital copy of your race. Winning connections will also be invited into the Winners Room for a complimentary drink to toast their success and review the race.
