Sedgefield is conveniently placed five minutes from Junction 60 off the A1(M), and is clearly signposted from there. The Racecourse lies just outside the village of Sedgefield, and is only twenty minutes from Teesside and Darlington.
The nearest main line stations to Sedgefield are situated in Darlington and Durham, both are approximately twenty minutes away by car or taxi.
Teesside International Airport is situated between Teesside and Darlington.
Fox hunting is another winner of an activity for the simple posh natives of the area. Although the "Man" has cracked down on hunting foxes with hounds, they go through the motions before "about 250,000 spectators would watch 314 registered hunts nationwide."*
But baby, that's just the registered ones. Ask around...
Anyway, check this out for now
and let your brave hound guide to the native's joy of chasing a terrified animal around the English countryside.
WARNING: I have gotten letters in response to this asking if this anything like cock-fights, which is a stupid question. England is first world - cock-fights are third world. F*cking peasants.

Since the Sedgefield Racecourse is such a source of regionwide fun, it attracts many - even more than a couple people who aren't emotionally strong enough to watch the horses. I know folks who cry when they see the horses smashing their legs against the barriers as they jump them, who bemoan the fate of the horses, etc.
If you don't have the stomach for a little goodnatured animal abuse maybe lay off this trip and make a call to PETA's UK chapter or something.
