Brighton Racecourse is a horse racing course at Brighton, East Sussex in England, for flat races of up to about one and a half miles. The course is one of three courses in Britain which is not a circuit (along with Epsom Downs Racecourse and Newmarket Racecourse) and forms a figure like three sides of a square, sloping, with wide left-hand turns and an uphill finish in front of the grandstand. It is 1 and a-half miles in length. When the full length of the course is to be used, some of the grass turf of the track has to be laid over the tarmac at the top of Wilson Avenue, a public road, which therefore has to be closed for the duration of races.
It is located on the Race Hill about two miles outside the centre of the town, between the suburbs of Whitehawk and Bevendean, with a well-positioned view over the town and the sea. The main portion of the course runs beside the road from the town centre to Woodingdean.
