Went to the races with 27 girlfriends, was brilliant day, stayed overnight in holiday inn express very close by which was worth doing. Weather was good which was helpful, plenty of staff serving drinks and food, and lots of variety in both. Will look forward to returning.

A great day out with friends and family. Usually at least once a year they also have a family day. Dress up or dress down depending on which part of the racecourse you are visiting.

this has a great central location, quite pretty, very lively on race days and puts on loads of events through the year. Never seen so much champagne drunk as here on race days

Both restaurants have cut costs producing poor quality food and cheap wine at high prices. I have written reviews on 1539 and White Horse

The racecourse is really well set out with lots of facilities. Close to the city centre, this is by far one of the better race courses around.

This is the perfect location if taking children as they can see the horses being walked to the enclosures and away again. There's a play area for younger ones.... More
