Horse Racing

The races has always been a popular venue for a day out and an opportunity to get dressed up to the nines. At Grimsby Minibus we can meet all your race day needs. Our minibus and driver will collect you from the appointed place and at the time arranged and will drive you to the race meeting. Grimsby is within easy travelling distance of a number of great race venues. Market Rosen is the nearest at just over 20 miles. They have Super Sundays at date throughout the year. These are events for all the family to enjoy; their Lincs Summer Plate Ladies Day is always a very well attended event. Travel a little further, north this time, to Beverley Races. Beverley is hosting a revival day on 7th May 2018, a Very British Day on 19 June and a Carnival Night in July. These are just some of the stand-out events from a very busy programme. A drive of almost 70 miles with take you to York’s famous racecourse. Have a day out at Dante Festival in May or the Ebor Festival in August. Newmarket, home of The Jockey Club is 118 miles away from Grimsby, but it does have two race courses, The Rowley Mile and the July Course. Newmarket hosts 40 race days a year, including the famous Guinness Festival during the first week in May, and Future Champions Day in mid-October. If you are travelling to the races, you could make a weekend of it and choose to stop overnight somewhere. We can help you with that because we know all the good places to stay that are close to the major racecourses, ranging from bed and breakfast to luxury hotels. You might want to fit some sightseeing in too. It would be a shame to go to York and not explore the city. Talk to Grimsby Minibus about you planned visit to the races.
