"While there's loads going on over Christmas, when you have children you tend to spend most of the time in the family home. While that's one of the nicest things about Christmas, it's always great if you can enjoy a family day out doing something fun together. Many of the UK's 60 racecourses host kids day out fixtures throughout the year and December is no different. As well as the fun of the race action, there are loads of things going on to keep younger children entertained, including a visit from Father Christmas."
Many courses now have family enclosures and on specific family days put on a wide array of entertainment, including football workshops, giant games and cartoon character guests. Plus, in the summer, there is usually an opportunity to enjoy a family picnic on the grounds of the course.
As children get older, a trip to the races could be a fun new experience that introduces them to one of the oldest and most widely-enjoyed sports. At many family fixtures, kids under 16 go free while others offer family tickets, making it a cost-effective but highly entertaining family day out.
Lovetheraces.com carries a wide range of great content about horseracing, including details of how to find and book tickets for an upcoming fixture. Plus, its 'What's on' guide is useful for pinpointing the type of race you're looking, at the right time of year and at a course near you. It will be well worth checking this section regularly over the coming weeks, with further family day out fixtures due to be announced at a number of different UK racecourses.
