The only thing was that you could'nt take drinks on the race course apart from that the course was good with drinks well priced

We also attended Ripon racecourse on 16.8.2014 and purchased Club Enclosure tickets with the Gold Package. Be aware that you cannot use the drinks vouchers in the Club Enclosure bar but have to obtain your drinks in the Wakeman bar.An extremley rude female steward told me in no uncertain terms that I couldnt take drinks back to my elderley inlaws...

This is quite a small racecourse but that made it very easy to get from the paddock ,place a bet,buy a drink and watch a race. We were able to pre-book a cab which was punctual and easy to find

We were lucky and had great weather. Good compact course. Very clean and lots of outside seating. Paddock entrance a good choice. Enough bars and food stalls. Staff varied. Just make sure you pick the winners.

We have been coming to the mid August meeting for many years. Last year was not so good and I made a point of raising my concerns with the managers of both the Course and Security. They gave excellent feedback to my complaint and I felt that I was taken seriously. We were given some complimentary wickets which we used... More

We went for a family day out for a special birthday. Ripon racecourse is definitely not wheelchair friendly!!! Nowhere with any height that you could go, have a drink and watch the action. There was one "special" wheelchair place and you certainly were not allowed a drink there. We were asked to move on from one bar as we were... More

Lovely setting. Food and alcohol very reasonably priced...particularly the champagne! Very close to centre of Ripon so could easily walk if staying in the centre of Ripon.

This was our second visit to the lovely racecourse but the first time we had taken the children, the family day was wonderful! Well organised, friendly staff and excellent value for money it was a lovely atmosphere and all of our children had a fabulous time. My eldest daughter is 12 and it can be a challenge finding days out... More
