The Bath racecourse is one of the oldest racecourses, dating back to 1728. In 1811, the racecourse hosted its first major meet. At that time, only one race was held annually. The numbers then kept increasing gradually as the years went by. The Somerset Stakes is the most ancient of all the races held in Bath racecourse. To date, the race is still held on an annual basis. Back then, people used to watch the races while in their carriages. The facility was redeveloped in 2016, giving it a new look. A roof garden was developed, from which people could watch races. The Beckford Bar was also opened in the racecourse.
