Old Race Course, Tunbridge Wells Common
Opened in the early 18th century and continued in use until 1851 having been petitioned for closure by local residents in 1845 due to rowdiness and drunkenness of the spectators. The route of the course can still be followed as the former racing turf was turned into bridleways and walks.
