Steeped in history, Lingfield Park was first opened in 1890 by the Prince of Wales who later became King Edward VII. Lingfield Park was the first of only four racecourses in the United Kingdom to have an all-weather track.
"As we move towards our goal of doubling our portfolio in Europe by 2015, we are thrilled to open this unique hotel here at Lingfield Park," said Amy McPherson, Marriott International's president and managing director for Europe.

The construction of the hotel and redevelopment of the facilities around the racecourse has taken Lingfield Park to a new level with its state-of-the art facilities and enormous versatility for guests."
Lingfield Park's 18 hole, tree-lined golf course has been newly landscaped and now boasts a new golf teaching academy and pro shop. The new Breathe Spa features amenities for health and relaxation including a sparkling indoor swimming pool, steam room, sauna and fitness center.

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
