If gambling and racing sound like your thing, the Cheltenham Festival is one of the greatest meetings in the National Hunt racing calendar.

It originated back in 1860 and it now includes four full days of events and races. To keep the atmosphere jolly, the festival usually coincides with St Patrick’s Day, so you’re guaranteed some extra fun alongside the six races a day!

This year, the festival goes on from 12-16 March and there will surely be celebrations. The only racing meeting that has a bigger prize than Cheltenham, is the Grand National.


Among the regular races included, the one in aid of Cancer Research UK features jockeys like journalists, children of famous trainers, etc. Who said that gambling is a vice if it can support such a noble cause?



To make sure your stay is pleasant, Thistle offers you a night’s stay, full English breakfast and a 3 course meal including a bottle of wine in our Burford Restaurant from £175 per person per night based on two adults sharing.

Book now for this fantastic package including other great treats!
