One of the oldest kart circuits in the country and used by renowned drivers such as Jenson Button, Anthony Davidson and Lewis Hamilton throughout their karting days. The track even featured in a movie, “Go Kart Go” starring Dennis Waterman and Wilfrid Brambell in 1964.

“Rye House has always been a great circuit, run by great people who have been incredibly supportive throughout my career. This is where I started and let’s hope that for every one of you, this could be where your career begins too” Lewis Hamilton – Formula 1 seven time world champion. 



Positioned just outside London, Rye House Kart Raceway is easy to access from the M25 and M11. The circuits facilities include a cafe from 7am to 7pm (times may vary per event) as well as parking spaces for camper vans for which gates will be open from 7am to 7:30pm. If you prefer camping, see Lee Valley Caravan Park just 7 minutes from the circuit or nearby hotels for colder months.

If you’re looking for family activities to make the most of your stay, as well as the kart track, Rye House is home to the Rye-assic Adventure Park for dinosaur-themed attractions, Laser Tag and Nerf Wars. See here for other activities in Hoddesdon or the best of day trips around North London.
