The zenith of British flat racing

At 780 feet above sea level, Bath is home to the highest flat racecourse in the country. The course itself was established in 1811, although races had been taking place Nearby for almost 100 years. Today, the left-handed oval track is home to both the Lansdown Fillies' Stakes and the Beckford Stakes.

Dive into Bath's past

The racecourse lies just under five miles north of Bath itself, and the city is well worth a visit. It boasts a huge amount of history, notably from the Roman era when it became known for its springs, and the Roman baths were established. As such it's a great place to take in a museum - or several. The Museum of Bath Architecture, the Museum of East Asian Art and the Victoria Art Gallery are all recommended.

Take a trip to Bristol

The city of Bristol lies some 10 miles to the west, although the roads are slightly more circuitous. The 15-20 mile drive is well worth it, though, with Bristol offering some tremendous shopping, dining and nightlife - as well as stunning architecture (to rival that of Bath) and museums of its own.
