Bath Racecourse Looks Set to pull in a High Number of Tourists this summer
Bath has always been a honeypot for tourism, and a record number of people visited the Somerset city in 2018.
The estimated 6.25 million people who visited that year contributed $470 million to the local economy, and this booming industry is something that needs to be encouraged. 2020 looks set to be another big year for visitors to Bath, with a number of high profile events scheduled to take place at Bath Racecourse in the summer. From top music acts to esteemed race meetings, the venue on Lansdown Hill will be buzzing.
One of the most notable events set to take place this summer is the Kaiser Chiefs live in concert on 5th June. The indie rock band which was formed in 2000 will cap off a day of racing with a live performance at 9:30 pm. The Leeds-based band have released seven studio albums and have had great success over the years. The 2007 single Ruby, in particular, was extremely popular and reached number one in the UK. The band will play some of their most loved tracks, along with more recent offerings from their latest album, Duck, released in 2019.
There will doubtlessly be a large turn out to this event, which will mark the beginning of summer in the UK. And with summer, comes a heavily packed racing schedule at the idyllic racecourse. For people attending any of the various race days at the course, it could be an idea to place bets beforehand so there is more time for frolicking and socialising on the day. There are various ways to do this, and myriad offers to be found online. For instance, horse racing betting at Space Casino comes with free bets and insurance on accumulators.
Another exciting event at the Bath Racecourse this summer is the Super Cider Saturday ft. The Wurzels. This day is back by popular demand after the immense success of the last edition. It is a standard day at the races, but accompanied by a wide selection of great cider and capped off with a musical performance by the legendary Somerset band. Tickets for the event start from £12, with the Exclusive Rooftop Garden priced at £55 per head.
The Wurzels are arguably more popular than the Kaiser Chiefs to people from around here, with the Scrumpy and Western band having been active for over five decades since 1966. Some of their best-known songs include The Combine Harvester and I Am a Cider Drinker. These classics songs reached number one and number three respectively in the UK charts. There is no band on the planet more suited to headlining a cider event.
Dispersed between these major events are numerous race days and family fun days, meaning that it will be easy for visitors to attend something on their desired dates. The Bath Racecourse and its busy summer schedule are just a couple of reasons why the city will attract a lot of tourism this summer.
