Hexham Racecourse is a thoroughbred horse racing track located in Hexham, Northumberland, England.

Situated 800 feet above sea level at High Yarridge, just south of the town, the course is a left-handed circuit of about one and a half miles with a short uphill climb on the approach to the finishing straight and a run-in of 250 yards. Hexham is a National Hunt course with ten fences for the steeplechasers to negotiate. Its principal race is the Heart of All England Hunter Chase.

Hexham is the most northerly National Hunt course in England and its remote position means that no races are held in February.

  • Great for race day and quiet to relax when it's not race day.
  • Fantastic views quiet site close to Hexham town
  • Great views but aged facilities and random permanent residents practicing lamping at 11 o'clock at night. Also kids playground looks dangerous. Old style roundabout puts kids limbs at risk and climbing rope poles snapped so swings excessively.

  • Wet soggy dirty
