Barbury for Kids

Barbury's the perfect place to introduce children to horseracing. There's no dress code, plenty of room to run around, and no restrictions on noise!

Try walking the course to work up an appetite for the Barbury Buttery, or come and see the jockeys weigh in and out. Pointing gives a perfect opportunity for your children to clamber on top of your car to view the races. 

And if they're really full of energy, a short walk to Barbury's iron age fort will let off some steam and allow you back before racing finishes for the day!

If you like horses or the wide open expanse of the Wiltshire Downs, Barbury Races is for you.
