We visited on 22nd August with friends, never been before. We bought paddock tickets at £18 each. Staff friendly and explained tickets, entrances etc. However the paddock was very overcrowded, no where to stand with a view of the course unless you pushed in front of people. So we ended up staying over the other side where you buy just... More

Really enjoyed our visit to Newton abbot races as expected it was a busy Saturday meeting and you expect it to be more packed than usual, people that don't like hussle and bustle of any kind should avoid any Saturday at any racecourse cos it's the same everywhere. The viewing was good and the big screen made a difference, as... More

Downright unpleasant today - oh what a squash. And oh when the heavens opened - no hiding place - unless you sneaked onto the cafe and watched the screen. Little provision for wet weather. Massive queues for drinks. Is it worth £18 for the Paddock? Unimpressed for price paid - uncomfortable.

On arrival we were given our tickets then everything was explained to us where to go and where our tickets allowed us to go. We visit racecourses on a regular basis and this one had mostly friendly people working there, There were a few exemptions, the security staff which there were plenty on view were a little bit brash and...

I attended the bootsale here yesterday, but it has taken me this long to calm down. I arrived as usual only to find that the usual nice steward was not on duty to divert blue badge holders nearer the sale, so non disabled drivers decided to try there luck, to the detriment of blue badge holders. I had to park... More

I have been several times and no doubt will go again as I like a small course where you are close to the action. But staff are officious and catering in the bars is woeful...over priced and badly organised. Things are even worse in 'the posh' than in the cheap enclosure. Could be a great occasion but well down on... More

We went to the Ladies Day meeting in June and were able to buy tickets for the Paddock 2 for the price of 1, which was excellent value at £18 for the 2. Getting in and round the racecourse is extremely easy and facilities are all clean and in good order. A great event to attend, with lots of people... More
