The Haldon Stand at Exeter Racecourse was built in 2009 with weddings and events in mind, making it the stunning and unique venue that it is. Whether you choose the breathtaking River Rooms with an amazing balcony overlooking the course and surrounding Haldon Forest or the impressive Denman Room on the ground floor opening onto the racecourse, you will not be disappointed.
The variety of elegant suites allows for both the smaller intimate reception to a larger, more lavish occasion, as well as everything in between. With 1st class facilities, excellent service, sumptuous catering and an idyllic setting, your wedding reception at the racecourse offers all the right ingredients to enhance the most special day of your life. The rooms can cater for up to 150 for a sit down meal and 200 for an evening event.
Exeter Racecourse offers both hints of tradition, with the grounds steeped in centuries of history as well as modern glamour in a contemporary building. The entrance on your wedding day with red carpet and personalised wedding signs ensures a warm welcome for the newly wed couple and guests.
Being situated at the top of Haldon Hill, the racecourse is very easy to find and can offer all guests free car parking with the option of collecting cars the next day.
There are some excellent photo opportunities to be had, whether on the balcony against a beautiful backdrop, at the finishing line or on the winners podium, the racecourse undeniably offers something a little different from the usual hotel venue.
If required, there is help at hand with the extras that make your wedding memorable, from chair covers, table decorations, flowers, DJ’s, room decorations etc., freeing you up for other important decisions whilst being assured
that the organisation is in safe hands.
All couples who book their wedding reception at Exeter Racecourse are invited to celebrate their first anniversary on a raceday which includes a table and lunch in the spectacular Desert Orchid Restaurant to include official programme and free entrance. Terms and conditions apply.
For more information or to arrange a visit, please do not hesitate to contact the racecourse on 01392 832599.
