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.

Reaching the course is not the easiest if not driving, or wanting to get a taxi, but once there it is an enjoyable and well laid out racecourse. Straight forward to find all you need, and with some good racing to watch it is the usual racecourse pricing but this is to be expected. There are views beyond the course... More

On 7.6.14, a group of us attended the evening meeting at Newcastle to celebrate a significant birthday for my brother-in-law. The racing itself was abandonned after an hour long storm, which was unfortunate and unavoidable, however several other aspects of the visit were not exactly satisfactory. Soon after our arrival we were directed to one of three large marquees where... More

a really good day out for the family, kids under 16 get in free with a paying adult,can be a bit pricey if there is more than two adults. I think the price of the drinks could be brought down a bit to help people that like a couple of drinks on a day out £4.00 per pint of lager... More

This day out was received as a Christmas present. It was a brilliant day out. Well worth going. Staff very pleasant and helpful (never been to a racecourse before so had to ask a lot).Everything you need available ie: food drink bookies.

Went with my wife on a Virgin experience day on Saturday 15/3/14. This was our first visit to Newcastle racecourse and we were fortunate to be in the Premier enclosure which looked a step up from the main enclosure. As with the previous review i felt the viewing facilities were poor even from this enclosure and most of your time... More
