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.

A great day out at the racecourse known, rightly, as The Garden Racecourse. Ripon Racecourse is both pretty and well maintained. Lots of viewing areas allowing visitors to see all the racing action they want to see. Several bars with a good selection of food and drink. A lovely place to go for a day's racing with or without the... More

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

We attended The Garden Course for a Friday evening meeting and it poured down the whole time. 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
