In general Newcastle Racecourse offers easy access to all areas. There are many paths and tarmac areas but you may also need to cross grassed areas at times so please be aware of changing ground conditions in rain.

We do advise that you bring waterproof clothing and an umbrella if rain is forecast, particularly those confined to a wheelchair who may experience delay in reaching a covered area.

If you require further advice or assistance before your arrival please call Customer Services on 0191 2362020 and we will be happy to help.
