This is a small racecourse with no grandstand. There are just a few steps in Tattersalls to raise a dew people above the bookies and absolutely nowhere to sit. If its a nice day it would be possible to take a picnic and some chairs to sit on but there is nowhere to shelter if it rains. Either way the... More

Novices to racing but visited on a trip to Stratford upon Avon. The parade ring is just next to the finish line and a tattershall ticket gets you access to this area. You have to buy the next ticket up to get access to a stand and there is no seating at all in the tattersall area. Burger van and... More

A nice day out even if you don't want to bet. Went here for a family birthday. We had a hospitality box with a buffet and bar. Lady serving the drinks was pleasant and helpful. View from box was okay, good view of the horses and the big screen. Easy to walk to and from the area of placing your... More

Afternoon at races, paid normal grandstand entrance fee £16, no value for money, basic facilities and overall poor view, was a big screen but I go to watch live not a tv. You can pay more £20 and get better facilities, in which case the price differential is wrong only £4 difference. If you are going for hospitality that looks... More

The positive thing about using the Racecourse caravanning facilitates is its location, an easy walk into centre of Stratford and the Theatre. Great walks in the immediate area, and it is dog friendly. The facilities however are poor not good loos or showers. I have no idea why they don't upgrade them to fit the area to be honest, but...

well placed for trips into Stratford, easy by bus and a short nice walk. Showers let the site down 50p, often cold and not much pressure.

Always one of our favourite racecourses and worth staying the extra couple of nights in the area to soak up the sights of Stratford upon Avon! Staff at the racecourse are always friendly and welcoming; the atmosphere is great with the paddock situated between the grandstand and the Course; and there are usually plenty of runners. Worth checking whether the... More

We have been coming to the race course now for many years and we always have the same problem. We are up in I believe is the members area where the bar and also selling some food is behind you and you can stand and watch the whole of the course. You can either bet on the tote or go... More
