A Day at the Races


The historic sport of horseracing not only holds a unique place in British culture, but in the story of Elmbridge in particular. Since the opening of Sandown and Hurst Park in 1875 and 1890 respectively, this great British pastime has been at the heart of Elmbridge's identity.

In this exhibition, we reveal the ups and downs in the stories of Sandown and Hurst Park, from their beginnings at the Starting Line, overcoming challenging Hurdles, and through to the Home Straight and Finishing Line in the modern day.
