Our Boxing Day tradition is back where it belongs this winter!

Why not extend the festivities this Christmas with a trip to the races? There is something for everyone at our favourite event of the year if you are looking for things to do on Boxing Day, a day at the races is your answer.

Forget slumping on the sofa or heading to the sales, dust off those Christmas cobwebs in the fresh air with us at the Boxing Day races, place some bets and grab some delicious food and drink.

The Sedgefield Tradition

Since the 1920s, crowds have flocked to Sedgefield on this day for one of the leading horse racing fixtures in the North-East.

This is a wonderful opportunity for a day out with the kids in a festive atmosphere at one of the most welcoming racecourses in the country.

Make a day out of it

Slumping on the sofa yet again simply doesn't stack up against the appeal of a fantastic winter afternoon enjoying Boxing Day horse racing in a friendly setting.

If you're looking for some different Boxing Day activities, why not spend the morning walking and taking in the picturesque countryside of Sedgefield.
