Visit here every October for the Prix de L'Arc de Triomphe. Considering it is in Paris the prices for food and drink are very reasonable. The efficiency with which everything is run is second to none. Free buses are supplied from Port d'auteuil, returning after racing to the same point. It is spotless, cleaners walking around all day. There is... More

I recently went to the Chantilly Racecourse for the Prix du Jockey Club. After having been to Epsom, Longchamp, and Cheltenham I expected large crowds and the inevitable noise and confusion. I was surprised that at Chantilly everything is small, elegant and beautiful. From the racecourse there are stunning views of the Château de Chantilly and its imposing XVIII century... More

I was the first to commend the cheap ticket prices for the prix de l'arc de triomphe - 'rip off britain' were infact the words I used!! I now understand why the tickets were so cheap. The facilities and grandstand were completely in need of a refurb, the toilets were smelly and dirty (the portaloos were better!), one of the... More

Booked a trip at the last moment as my husband want to go to the big race, stayed at Auteuil tour eiffel hotel which was about a 10 min walk to the nearest metro and then two stops to the Pont Auteuil stop for the free shuttle (navette) to the racecourse. This was very efficient, plenty of busses. The ride... More

We went to the races on both days. On saturday i booked a table in the panoramic restaurant which not only overlooked the racecourse but you could see the eiffel tower also. Lunch was great and had a wonderful day. Sundau was equally good but far more crowds on sunday so beware. You can get a weekend pass which cost... More

Visited for the Arc meeting this year. Entrance was just 10 euros. You can book online in advance or just pay on the day. 95% of people make an effort and dress up for this, there is no formal dress code though. We felt slightly under dressed as had been wrongly advised that people didn't go too smart but they... More

A great chance to get dressed up and have a day out to see so many group one races all for only 8euros. Unseasonably warm weather (2013) and there is a lot to see as well as the racing. The amount of space for the race-goer compared to English courses is incredible. Some of the food is expensive but then... More

Everyone gets dressed up and thousands attend for the special race events, it's a real treat to see this event and it seems everyone in Paris thinks so too. Why do I say this, the traffic is an absolute nightmare within 5 miles of the place, it is standstill and inch crawl right up to Gard Nord, so don't take... More

Excellent view of the course even from the cheap seats. No long lines for anything including betting. Transportation was well organized.
