The Festival™



As the pinnacle of Jump racing, the Cheltenham Gold Cup not only headlines Day Four, but is also the feature race of The Festival™ for spectators, jockeys and trainers alike.


Playing a major part in the sporting calendar in the UK each year, its winners go down in history with the likes of Best Mate and Kauto Star becoming household names.


Please note: We are a cashless venue. On-course betting facilities will take cash and there are cash machines on site.

As well as the extraordinary action out on track, there's plenty to look forward to off it as well with the Guinness Village and The Orchard™ offering live entertainment throughout the day. There's even a chance to treat yourself to an extra gift in our Shopping Village


That's not forgetting our excellent range of food and drink options, which are available across the course. 

The pinnacle of the Jump season, Day Four of the Cheltenham Festival features the sport’s blue riband race, the Cheltenham Gold Cup.


Jockey Jack Kennedy wept tears of joy after winning the Cheltenham Gold Cup with Minella Indo and admitted: “This is the best day of my life.”



We will be updating all customers regarding our booking procedures for children aged five and under before the new year. A full-priced ticket will need to be purchased for children aged six and over.



Re-watch The Nightcap, where Chris Hughes was joined by different guests throughout the week as he reviewed the day's racing.
