We look forward to welcoming you to Taunton Racecourse  Taunton Racecourse aims to attract a wide range of visitors to all of its race meetings and events and welcomes all disabled people in society, irrespective of age, physical, intellectual or sensory ability.

Taunton Racecourse has a range of properties and amenities and is continually working towards raising standards in visitor facilities and customer care. In order to achieve this, we constantly review all forms of access and strive to demonstrate best practice in the management of our properties, in the services we provide, and towards the people we employ.

Taunton Racecourse carries out access audits to help identify areas where improvements are required and look at solutions to the issues raised. We not only want to comply with relevant legislation, but also to go further in providing a top quality experience for all visitors. We will endeavour to ensure that disabled people are not treated any less favourably, and that ‘reasonable adjustments’ are made where appropriate and possible through sensitive and creative solutions.

Where access to certain properties and amenities is not possible for various reasons alternative services will, wherever possible, assist in overcoming these restrictions. Training in disability awareness is being carried out in key areas within Taunton Racecourse and will be a continuing process over the coming years.
