Perth Races

If you love the thunder of the hooves and the adrenaline of the race then Perth Racecourse is a must visit attraction for you! Offering the perfect location for a day at the races, our local course shares its stunning parkland with nearby Scone Palace. Dating back more than 400 years, you will find one of Scotland’s oldest and most historic courses.

The season kicks off with the three day “Perth Festival” during the last week in April and runs until the two-day Glorious Finale at the end of September; Perth’s oldest fixture. The eleven and a half furlong (about a mile and a quarter), right-hand track is mostly level with five hurdles and seven steeplechase fences on each circuit, including a water jump overlooking the original Club Stand and turnstiles.

Voted Best Racecourse in Scotland and North England and Perth Chamber of Commerce Star Award for Excellence in Leisure and Tourism.
