What a shame about the weather, rained all day, especially as they had put loads of interesting things on for adults and children alike. Themed as 'Alice in Wonderland', Characters from the stories walking around on stilts, face painting, games etc for the children. Afternoon tea was available with the tables decorated with items related to the stories such as... More

Thius is the second time we've visited this course and again the grass and gardens were perfect. It's a nice compact viewing area and a good viewing course. the distance from Tatts to the parade ring isn't too far and in general the whole set up is excellent. Well worth a visit.

Ten work colleagues treated ourselves to an afternoon out at Ripon races, after a decent half year we pushed the boat out and booked the Dine and View package which used the Rowel Rooms which had incredible views of the course (and finishing line!) Upon arrival we where whisked up to our table, it was clear from this moment the... More

Great day out at the races. We watched 7 races and had at least the first or second in most races, so actually ended up on the day (won't be retiring yet though!). Lovely atmosphere, Ripon Brass Band playing in the bandstand, cocktail stalls, food stalls, pimms stalls, glorious sunshine- what more could anyone ask for?

A great viewing and picturesque race track, lovely flower displays, great value for money and very helpful staff! Lots of things for children to do in the centre of the race track and great for picnic loads of benches to sit on and I got a few winners too!

Despite it being on the other side of The Pennines for us, Ripon is becoming a regularly visited racecourse for us. It is friendly, customer focused and offers good value for money. We went for a Tuesday evening meeting and (using the excellent Racegoers Club voucher - has saved us a fortune this year!) got in for just £8. The... More

A fun day out. The location is great and the actual racecourse itself was lovely. We went for the afternoon race meeting and enjoyed doing something different. We took a couple of our own folding chairs to sit on.
