It has several racetracks varying from 1,000 to 4,000 m long with 46 different starting posts. The course is home to more than half of the group one races held in France, and has a capacity of 50,000. The... More

Planned an entire day around the track. Website says it is a 10-minute walk from Metro stop. We're walkers and it took us 45 minutes. Went to Le Sea Bird restaurant upon arrival. Without reservations it is hopeless to get a table. Someone cancelled just after we arrived so gratefully we got seated. This was the only restaurant open the... More

This is my favourite racecourse in France. I've been to quite a few and the way they all operate is brilliant compared to the UK or Ireland. I've been for Arc day in October several times and for €8 it's a great day out. The complimentary shuttle bus from the metro station is brilliant as it takes all the hassle... More

We have been going racing to this fantastic racecourse for over 20 year's and still just love going to this fantastic race meeting ,Prix de l'arc de triomphe,held in the first weekend of October. This year's was really special with Treve being the first back to back winner of the Arc for over 30 year's. It's a massive racecourse,a little... More

This was not on my agenda for my trip to Paris! Im a horseracing fan...aside from that some interesting history here....this was the place Coco Chanel was introduced to her business partner Pierre Weritheimer....a fusion of two of my favorite things fashion and horseracing! The Jockeys signed my program and it was great to see how horseracing is conducted in... More

Went to the Arc meeting this year with my husband. We bought our tickets for Saturday and Sunday at the gate on the Saturday as a weekend package which cost us 26 euros each. I believe that it was a little more expensive than our previous visit 2 years ago but still cheaper than British courses. Saturday was obviously a... More

I have attended the Prix De L'Arc De Triomphe meeting in October for the past 32 years. This year was another great occasion made even more special by Treve becoming the first horse in over 30 years to win the Arc twice.The buildings are showing signs of wear and tear however it is worth noting that Longchamp closes after the...

Second time in going to this famous race, the course is easily accessible & has plenty of room inside. beware this year there were additional charges for sitting on the basic terraces, which we refused to do. But all in all a good day out, you don't get too stung for the price of a beer & most the Totes... More

All went well until we got to the entrance gates late opening, a lot of queue jumping by wily orientals,when all of the extras provided by Quatar were stripped away it was a very basic race course with moderate facilities. 1st race not seen,behind the temp stands and trees, tote failed to declare dividends very quickly, in fact they came...
