Welcome to Barbury Races

Welcome to a brand new season of racing at Barbury Castle, near Wroughton in Wiltshire. Barbury Castle Estate is home to top flight equestrian sport at every level. Barbury Racecourse stages four Point-to-Point meetings each season, and of course, the estate plays host to Barbury Horse Trials in July. Truly, this is a setting where excellence can flourish across multiple equine disciplines.

The natural amphitheatre that surrounds the racecourse offers superb viewing of the entire course, easy access to the paddock and winner’s enclosure, and excellent racing ground on our chalky soil to bring out the best in any thoroughbred. From the opening Point-to-Point Owners & Riders Meeting to the Tedworth in April, this is a venue where you can enjoy breath-taking scenery, very fresh air, archly competitive racing and the only international Point-to-Point fixture in the UK. 

And with easy access via the motorway network, Barbury’s appeal as a racing venue stretches far and wide as our International fixture illustrates.

We look forward to welcoming you to this wonderful venue, and to helping you get the best from your racing.
