An intoxicating atmosphere at Uttoxeter
Offering National Hunt racing all year round, and set in attractive countryside in the heart of England, on the Derbyshire and Staffordshire border, Uttoxeter Racecourse is a highly regarded award-winning course. It's home to the Midlands Grand National among some 25 other annual fixtures, and is a stellar events venue too.
Make the most of Uttoxeter
As well as boasting a leading National Hunt racecourse, the market town of Uttoxeter has plenty else to recommend it. In the mid-2000s the town centre underwent extensive renovations, and today the modern stonework and new features blend perfectly with the historic buildings, making for an attractive small town with good shopping and dining options.
Thrills and spills at Alton Towers
Alton Towers theme park is just over five miles from the racecourse, and offers an exciting day out for young ones or the young at heart. Billed as the UK's leading resort, the park - which includes a huge number of attractions - certainly lives up to its reputation.
