Plumpton Racecourse


Information For Plumpton Racecourse

Plumpton Racecourse is one of the most unique and memorable wedding venues in Sussex, with the beautiful backdrop of the South Downs and set within secluded grounds.

Guests can enjoy a champagne reception outside in the sunshine, where your special moments are captured within our wonderful setting, and importantly, the venue is exclusively yours for this memorable day. Plumpton Racecourse is licensed for civil ceremonies and partnerships, offering both an indoor and outdoor ceremony venue. Our outdoor ceremony venue is located in the picturesque setting of the Parade Ring, creating a unique location for your special day.

Whether you are planning and intimate wedding or a lavish celebration, we will go that extra mile to make your day special. From the moment of your enquiry, we will give you and your families a very warm welcome, a personal and tailored service, and the closest attention to detail.

Plumpton Racecourse is a hidden gem at the foot of the South Downs in East Sussex. Horse racing has been held at Plumpton since 1884, and through the years we have welcomed many of horse racing’s legends – both horse and human – including none other than Sir Anthony (AP) McCoy, who rode his 3,000th winner here on Restless D’Artaix. You are likely to be rubbing shoulders with the UK’s top trainers and jockeys at Plumpton, and we are renowned as a nursery ground for many future equine stars.

As a National Hunt Jumps course, we host 17 racedays a year from September to May. Our break from racing in the Summer allows us to exploit the great facilities we have on site and offer award-winning service to you and your guests. With experienced and expert caterers who will meet all your catering needs, from canapés to a five-course meal, the flexibility of Plumpton is unrivalled.

Honoured to be voted ‘Best Small Racecourse in the South 2018’ by the Racegoers Club, we pride ourselves on offering all our guests a warm welcome and high level of service. Whether you are here for a family celebration, entertaining business clients, rewarding staff for their hard work or simply enjoying a day out with friends, we always ensure we have a smile on our face and offer you the VIP service you deserve.

Worried about how you will get to Plumpton? As well as the plenty of free parking on site and located only 10 miles from Brighton, it isn’t hard to find us, especially as Plumpton train station is at the foot of the course, with a direct line to and from London Victoria.

Should you require any additional information about our services, or if you wish to enquire further about availability, please contact our wedding team, who would be delighted to have an opportunity to show you around our beautiful venue and answer any questions you may have.
