Horseracing isn’t just for adults – children love the excitement of a day at the races too.

At Newton Abbot Racecourse we go to great lengths to make sure it’s a memorable day out for all of the family.

Children’s play area

We have now moved the Children’s Play Area into the Course Enclosure with a dedicated, secure gated enclosure right on the rails.

As part of our effort to ensure that a day’s racing has something on offer for everyone, regardless of age, the new permanent play area will be open at every fixture throughout the season.

Boasting favourites such as a nest swing, traditional swings, a climbing fort with slide and sprung animals, including, of course, a horse, the play area is suitable for young racegoers aged 3 to 12 years. There’s plenty to keep them entertained in-between the racing action.

Raceday crèche

For those who’d prefer to put their children in a crèche, the Sunflower Day Nursery is open on each daytime fixture. Visit the raceday crèche page to find out more.
