Happy Valley Horse Racing Track

Hotels near Happy Valley Horse Racing Track, Hong Kong, Hong Kong .

The Happy Valley Race Track is located on Happy Valley on Wong Nai Chung Road and Morrison Hill Road in Hong Kong Island. It was first built in 1845 as a means of providing horse racing entertainment for the British people in Hong Kong.

It was formerly a swampland that was an ideal site for a race track and at the beginning, the government prohibited the surrounding areas from planting rice fields so that that land will be easier for the race track to be built on.

The first ever race to be held on this site was on December 1846. It was damaged during a fire in 1918 and was later rebuilt in 1995 and became a modern and world class facility for the people. Locate inside the race course is the Hong Kong Jockey Club Archive and Museum. Four Galleries are in the museum namely Origin of Our Horses, Shaping Sha Tin, Understanding Horses and Thematic Exhibitions. A cinema and souvenir shop is also located in the race course.

Hotels in the area are the Emperor Happy Valley Hotel, The Cosmopolitan Hotel Hong Kong, Empire Hotel Hong Kong Wan Chai and the Express by Holiday Inn.
