Visited with friends for a raceday, this is an excellent racecourse with great facilities and a great atmosphere. Good family facilities with free parking and easy access. If you have chance don't miss this in summer.

This charming fixture always lives up to its reputation as the "garden racecourse". Decked out with a kaleidoscope of colour for every meeting,even if you lose on the day it is still a pleasure to visit a gem nestled in the Yorkshire countryside. As racing has finished here for another summer one can look back fondly and look forward to... More

This is the first time I have been here as a couple I usually come with a gang of blokes or in a coach load. The prices are a good average price and have a lovely picturesqe course which you tend to miss when your out in a gang. The prices of the food and drinks seemed slightly dearer than... More

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
