We always have a fantastic day out at Yorkshires garden race course, from the ease of entry to the warm family feel and ability to get really close to the horses and races

Many courses would have struggled with more people needing to be indoors but Ripon dealt with it well and it never felt too crowded. The facility itself is beautifully maintained and looked great despite the rain. There's plenty of outdoor seating, things going... More

We all had a lovely day in the centre of the course, there was plenty of things for the youngsters to do, slides, rides etc. We took a picnic there was plenty of room for everyone. The weather was fantastic, which of course helped,... More

We went to the race course in September for a birthday party. We hired out the Hornblower suite which was excellent value for money. The Hornblower suite has an indoor area, and outdoor area with seating next to the track, your own personal bar and betting area, as well as tv's and food is also available. We had a stunning...

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
