...for your special day!


When only the best will do on your big day, it's worth knowing that Doncaster Racecourse flaunts a stunning venue for civil wedding ceremonies, same sex marriages, civil partnerships, multicultural weddings, wedding receptions, banquets and special celebrations.

If it's beautiful surroundings you're after - we tick more boxes than most. From well-tended lawns to top-notch service from our expert team - there's no wonder we're one of the most popular places to tie the knot in Yorkshire.

Our beautiful stone-pillared pavilion takes centre-stage for all wedding celebrations at Doncaster Racecourse. Its setting is special, too. The front terrace of the pavilion looks directly onto the perfectly manicured Champagne Lawn.

Doncaster Racecourse is a much-loved wedding retreat - and a stunning backdrop to your picture-perfect wedding photographs.

On the food front, expect the best. Banquets, balls and private functions at Doncaster Racecourse have a real sense of occasion. Whatever the event, we'll create a menu built with you in mind.

It's our job to take care of all the detail - and our team of wedding experts have years of experience, so we know what we're talking about when it comes to creating magical memories.

We run regular open evenings and wedding shows so that you can see the venue for yourself. And when you do, you'll understand why hundreds of happy couples chose Doncaster Racecourse to say 'I do!'.

Civil Marriages in our beautiful Paddock Pavilion

The Champagne Pavilion is home to the most popular place to be seen on a race day. The Old Weighing Room restaurant and bar is a traditional building steeped in history - with all the modern twists you'd expect from us.

Step outside and you're footsteps away from our beautiful Champagne Lawn with flowers and greenery everywhere you look. Do a 360 and the pavilion itself gives you the money-can't-buy backdrop for the wedding snaps you'll treasure forever.

Back indoors and the original beamed structure comes with classic racing memorabilia wall art. And the glass domed roof rivals any church or chapel. Together it sets the scene for a truly wonderful occasion.

Finally, in terms of guests - the Paddock Pavilion hosts receptions of up to 70. And for your evening reception, we'll open up a dance floor and exclusive bar area - and your after-dark guest list can top 150.

Or choose to call our Main Stand home for the day

If your guest list is as long as your arm, our main stand offers a great range of suites for party sizes of between 30 and 400 guests.

When it comes to the suites, they're all glass-fronted with huge sliding doors opening out to a balcony or terrace. It's from here you get the million dollar views across the course. If you like, get a terrace and BBQ area to call your own. Ask us for details.
