Nottingham Racecourse railway station was a station opened by the Great Northern Railway to serve Nottingham Racecourse in Nottingham, England.

History[edit]

The Racecourse station was located on the extension built in 1857, when opened its own terminus at London Road, due to continuing problems with sharing the Midland Railway's Carrington Street station. The Great Northern took over the line from Grantham from the Ambergate, Nottingham, Boston and Eastern Junction Railway.
