Opened in 1926, Chepstow is one of three racecourses in Wales, and supports flat and jump racing. During WWII the racecourse became RAF Chepstow with a grass runway in the centre of the course.
It is now also used as a venue for weddings and conferences.
A bus shuttle service operates from Chepstow Railway Station to the Racecourse via the town’s bus station. The service also operates from Newport Railway Station. Further connections are at Cheltenham Spa for Yorkshire, North East of England and Scotland.
