Hexham Racecourse, High Yarridge, Hexham, Northumberland. NE46 4PF. Tel: 01434 606881.

HEXHAM races is one of the most beautiful racecourses in England. Set in Northumberland in the shadow of Hadrian’s Wall, Hexham races stages jump racing from March through to December. Its evening/twilight meetings in April and September are particularly popular. The most historic event at Hexham races is the Heart of all England Maiden Hunters’ Chase that was first contested in 1907. The track is testing and there is an emphasis on stamina. Horses who go for home too early are often reeled in as there is a deceptively tough climb from the end of the back straight to the finishing post.
