Went for the children's day. First time at races in the UK, and really enjoyed the experience. Entrance to course enclosure was great value, with impressive free entertainment for the children, and free parking within the grounds. Good view of the home straight.

Great fun day. I wanted a glass of soda water to dilute my wine (was feeling the a bit p***ed) Can anyone explain how I could be charged £1.50 for a small glass of Soda Water! I have never ever been charged for soda water in any pub. The booze in general was expensive but £1.50 for soda water was... More

This is a comparatively small racecourse which means everything is nice and handy; a couple of minutes walk from trackside to bar to toilets to parade ring to eateries. It is all beautifully kept, even the grass of the car parks was immaculate. Nice choice of food outlets and a SWEET SHOP! Constant flow of busy workers picking up litter... More

We were in Ripon to go to the races which is always a good day out. Ripon is a lovely course small and intimate, well kept and looked after. Three couples went so we decided to go in 'Dine & View' this meant we had our own table for the day so could come and go as we wished, it... More

On behalf of Ripon Racecourse I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the Dine and View package. I can see from your review that you visited us in August 2014, Racecourse Hospitality have since changed their policy in regards to the food on the Dine & View package and now offer a menu with a wider range...

Racing that's easy to enjoy. Easy to park and to get in and around the course. Nice crowd, well run race course. An antidote to the over hyped, over crowded, over-rated 'marquis' events in the racing calendar. I actually saw some horses and jockeys!!!!

What a delightful course. Despite it being Ladies Day and almost the Longest Day it was somewhat chilly. However this only meant we had more time to explore the course. You can even take your car onto the course, definiately worth while if you have four people. Take a picnic and soak in the atmosphere. We will be returning for... More

The ease of the racecourse and the friendly staff. Only a short distance from the centre of Ripon. The restaurants and shops were plenty and the champagne bar was fabulous.
