Went to the races here for the afternoon and had a fabulous time. We paid a little extra to watch the races from inside and the expanse of glass made it a really enjoyable experience. We didn't eat there but had some drinks at the bar. You could watch from the finish line too and I took some great pictures... More

Was unsure what to expect as this was our first visit to a smaller racecourse. But it surpassed our expectations. There were friendly and helpful staff to ask question of about where things were. Plenty of places to eat or get a drink at reasonable prices. Excellent views of the course and parade ring. Numerous oncourse bookies and a betfred... More

Free parking only a couple of minutes walk from the entrance (though I think you could pay £3 to park a bit nearer). Layout is slightly unusual - even in the Tattersalls you can stand right by the finish line. Paying for day membership just gives you access to a bit more indoor facilities and some small stands.

We go racing a lot and, with regret, I have to say Stratford is one of the lesser courses we visit. I suppose this is about value for money and at £16 for Tatts (£1.60 cheaper if bought in advance) the facilities are poor. We arrived just before the first race and wanted something to eat but the selection was... More

Not completely sure that a few reviewers haven't been a bit harsh on this race course. It is not and, to be fair, does not try to be, a major racecourse. I believe it is a fun day out at a low grade course trying very hard to be as good as it can. Admission is very good; you can... More

The Racecourse is a great site for campers/caravaners that enjoy space especially those with dogs, there is a lovely walk into Stratford that takes maybe 15-20 mins takes you into the park at the Marina. Also a lovely 10 min walk to a pub near Anne Hathaway's Cottage that has a lovely beer garden. Facilities are basic but didn't really... More

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
