Dog Walking at Cheltenham Racecourse

Find out more below

We have updated our dog walking policies

Cheltenham Racecourse has a history of welcoming dog walkers onto the private land surrounding the course, encouraging all user groups to enjoy the space.

The Racecourse is currently working towards making access to the land as friendly as possible, whilst ensuring that safety standards are met and that on-site events aren’t compromised. To do this we have updated our dog walking policy and it is important that ALL dog walkers are aware of the changes.

Please see more information on this document
