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

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...

Visitied for Arc De Triomphe racing... Toilets are awful...NO ATM machines... Wine and beer is hard to find , but pricess are ok. $EUR for heineken and 25EUR for bottle wine...wine was good. It is really dated and disappointing for the raceday. The lack of seating did not help for thos wh odidnt have them.
