Visited with my 3 kids (ages 7/5/2) who had a great time watching the racing and getting involved with family activities. Was disappointed when told we couldn't take our fold up chairs in when pretty much every other person had! But picnic blanket made do for day. Children were free which was great. Food stands were pretty expensive as to... More

Went on a week day for the evening, racing was good, views were decent. Not a huge selection of bars and restaurants but enough for the smallish crowd who were present that evening, Toilets are clean and tidy. Staff were helpful and pleasant inside and outside the venue. Would go back in a busier race day.

Regular racing enthusiasts, this is our first visit to Kempton Park race course, on par size wise with Goodwood, the facilities were lacking too few bathroom facilities and very long queues. The food choices were pretty good, varied options that catered for most tastes, the car park was full and closed as we arrived, which was not a great. However,... More

Our second visit to this racecourse. It was a busy day but always seems to be plenty of room for everyone. The main hall is huge, plenty of seating and a good space between the paddock and racecourse. Food is what it is at all of these venues - fast and over priced - but plenty of choice. Always enjoy...

21st Feb 2015 visited. Good range of food, real ales and bars. Elevated view of the race course and a few winners as well. Free to get in this year but normally £15- £20 quid. This is a good day out with mates and couples and parking on site

Done most course but this was a new one for me. Admission package was a good deal for £22 inc admission (£16) racecard (£2.50) Food and drink vouchers (£10) betting voucher (£2) and a free ticket for a future meeting. I was at a jumps meeting and its a good track and good viewing but very few people there, not... More

We took advantage of a special offer for racecourse admission and Steak & Chips for £20.00 in the Panoramic View Restaurant and had a fantastic day from start to finish. The service, food and staff were all first class and i considered it to be excellent value for money. Each table has its own TV screen, which shows the horses... More

On a cold, blustery day, this is a great race track to visit as the attendance is usually light. The paddock is at the back of the stands and the design makes for easy viewing of the horses. A bit on the pricey side compared to other tracks, but it is London real estate. The big disappointment for us this... More
