Hexham has come up as the eighth UK racecourse with the cheapest ticket prices.

Pontefract, in West Yorkshire, was crowned the UK's most affordable racecourse ticket, with a price tag of only £6.

Wetherby, another Yorkshire-based venue, closely follows with adult tickets starting at £6.50.

These attractively priced tickets have contributed to Wetherby's spot in the top 35 best UK racecourses, according to research from OLBG.

The data provided a stark contrast with Cheltenham, one of the pricier options.

Here, race day tickets begin at £57.

The study also revealed that Wolverhampton Racecourse hosts the most race days throughout the year.

With 82 fixtures, it outranks both Newcastle, with 79, and Southwell, with 76.

Additionally, Ascot Racecourse came in first in the report's list of best racecourses in the UK, with an overall score of 9.21 out of 10.

The report revealed that it has more followers on Instagram and TikTok than any other racecourse.

The only negative, however, is its price, which is priced at £49, making it one of the most expensive racecourses in the UK.
