Princess Royal Opens Hampton by Hilton Hotel at Hamilton Park Racecourse

HRH The Princess Royal returned to Hamilton Park Racecourse on 26th September 2019 to officially open the new 118 bedroom Hampton by Hilton Hotel which was constructed on the site of a former grandstand with stunning views across the racecourse .

The Princess Royal was greeted by Lord Lieutenant Lady Haughey CBE and enjoyed revisiting a course where she has previously  raced  and in 1992 opened the Course Grandstand .

Investment of £12 million was involved  to construct the new  hotel which is already proving very popular with customers . Great thought and innovation has been taken to create a first class facility with interior designs themed to chart the proud history of the racecourse   and its unique place now in the Scottish Horseracing  calendar staging each year,  a race for one of the oldest sporting trophies in the world ‘The Lanark Silver Bell ‘.
