Lingfield Park Resort is one of the most picturesque racecourses in the UK, nestled within 450 acres of rolling Surrey countryside. Steeped in history, Lingfield Park was opened in 1890 by the Prince of Wales who later became Edward VII. The racecourse remains one of only four racecourses in the UK to have an all weather track.
Described as 'racing's most elegant course', Lingfield Park hosts over 100 fixtures in 2013, including such entertainment as live music, family activities and the esteemed Derby Trial Weekend in May.
Alongside racing, Lingfield Park Resort also boasts a 4* Marriot hotel, spa and golf country club, making the Resort the first of its kind in the UK. Many of the 116 rooms have magnificent views across the racecourse, along with 21 conference & meeting suites just 10 minutes from the M23 & M25.
