Newbury Racecourse, one of the top racecourses in the country, puts the finishing touches on a £50m redevelopment in Berkshire. After commencing the agreement with David Wilson Homes to build 1,500 homes on the racecourse’s land in 2012, Newbury Racecourse then invested in what was known as the Heartspace redevelopment focussing on improvements of internal grounds and facilities. There is now only one element left which is the renowned Royal Box, due to complete in March 2020.
The development included refurbishments to all of the stands to improve the experience for racegoers and corporate clients. A new paddock and pre parade ring benefits from landscaped designs to create a greener and more attractive environment.
On non-race days, The Owners Club acts as the most prestigious conference and events space. Bi-fold doors lead onto an outdoor terrace overlooking the parade ring. Another unique feature includes new entrances to improve the arrival experience, one being a personalised LED screen which has become a very popular feature for large corporate and outdoor events when bigger crowds are expected.
The redevelopment was a key milestone in the growth of Newbury Racecourse, not only as a racecourse but also in the expansion of the conference and events side of the business. For further information or to enquire about holding a conference or event, email firstname.lastname@example.org
