The history of Greyville

The history of Greyville dates as far back as 1844, when it hosted the province’s first official horse racing event. The track has had the honour of welcoming the likes of Queen Elizabeth II, the Duke of Edinburgh and an array of notable enthusiasts from all corners of the globe.

The 2 800m pear-shaped track encircles the Royal Durban Golf Course and is home to South Africa’s premier horse race and fashion event, the Durban July. With a bustling nightlife in nearby Florida Road and some of the finest restaurants in the province just around the corner, the suburb is perfectly placed for a venue that will change the face of the city.
