Serviced Apartment Accommodation for Newcastle Racecourse
Newcastle Racecourse is a horse racing course located in the 812 acre High Gosforth Park Estate just outside Newcastle and is home to 30 race meetings a year. It stages both flat and National Hunt racing, with the biggest meeting being the Northumberland Plate which is held annually in June. The racecourse has seen a big turn in its fortunes in the last decade and a lot of this success can be attributed to the arrival of Scottish businessman David Williamson as managing director in April 2002. During a six year period he transformed the racecourses fortunes and helped boost turnover from £2.5m to £6.5m.
The Northumberland Plate is surely he highlight of the racing calendar in Newcastle and brings in £30m to the regional economy. It’s now one of the richest two-mile handicaps in the world with the prize fund for the 2009 running at £180,000.
For those who are attending the racing, there are the usual budget hotels options available but often race goers want something a bit more luxurious than a cramped, basic hotel room. That’s why serviced apartments are becoming a more and more popular option for people across the country and especially in Newcastle. Serviced City Pads have a number of serviced apartment options in Newcastle that you can stay in during race events at Newcastle Racecourse. Everyone that stays in a serviced apartment mentions how much more they enjoyed the experience and how much more they have felt at home compared when they have previously stayed in hotels. The main reason why serviced apartments prove so popular is because of the extra space that they provide, as you are getting a whole apartment for your money rather than just 1 small hotel room.
If you’re heading over to Newcastle to attend the racing then you will probably want some luxury accommodation in Newcastle to match your experience. When you’ve spent a day at the races in your best suit, having been sipping champagne and winning your thousands, the last thing you want is to go back to a cramped budget hotel room.
