About Cheltenham Festival

The Cheltenham Festival is the highlight of the National Hunt season that provides an unrivalled buzz as 250,000 people descend onto the beautiful Cotswold Hills over four days of scintillating action. Champions are decided, heroes are made, and reputations are left in ruins as the finest horses, jockeys, and trainers battle it out for the highest racing honours and nearly £4m of prize money.

‘The Greatest Show on Turf’ really is the only place you should find yourself in the middle of March!
