The prices are reasonable and... More

We attend the races to celebrate Michelles birthday. It's wonderful to see the horses and fashions on ladies day. The down side is the cost tickets to attend drinks and food are also expensive but it makes a change.

Fun days great, £25 family entrance, then £8 each for wrist bands to let the kids on teacups and bouncy castles. Drinks over-priced as expected.
