First experience of a race day and whilst not exactly what I'd expected it was fun. In hindsight as it wasn't ladies day we felt overdressed wearing a simple dress and heels but then as the lovely lady I spoke to on the phone advised some people get very dressy and others very casual so we were somewhere in the...

As a racecourse this place is just great . . . It had horses racing and everything. There were even some chaps waving their hands about wearing sheepskin coats and hats just before each race as entertainment (though they did seem to get handsome tips in exchange for some small cards) The quality of the refreshments was somewhat lacking ....

I won a table of ten at an auction at a charity do, but I believe the cost of the table was £1000 typically. We were lucky as we were able to get tickets for the final day of the season. Overall the day was great fun, food was good as was the racing. there was a party afterward which... More

Perth racecourse holds some great events throughout the year. Very nice place to visit. Day events are fully kitted and nearly everything runs smoothly. Would highly recommend ladies day

We had a lovely afternoon here. The people directing cars to parking places do so very well, you know exactly where you are supposed to go! The races, looking at the horses and jockeys before and after each race, the commentary, seeing the races from the stands or up at the barrier, a big screeen showing each race, the number... More

I'd never been to the races before but my day out was such fun, despite backing so many donkeys! I did get second each way on the final race but really it didn't matter about the losses or wins as it was good to be outdoors soaking up the atmosphere. Judging by other reviews I think we were there on... More

My first visit to this racecourse and it was on possibly the hottest day of the year.. there was the added bonus of a food fair with local produce for sale,, couldn't resist the ginger caramel popcorn and local fruit cider.. the staff at the course were very helpful and friendly and the bookies happy to advise this beginner of...

What a great day out you get at Perth Race Course, consider going as a group to get good discounts on tickets!!! Plenty seating areas although a few more tables/benches in them would be good. Good range of food and drink vendors on site! More loo's would be good!!! Atmosphere GREAT!!!!!

As a first time visitor I didn't know what to expect. The place was very busy due to previous meets being cancelled, and every outlet was queued out. As I had a grandstand ticket I was expecting a seat at least, but no. The seating was also the steps up to the grandstand bar, and they were soon covered in... More
