We love horse racing so when we saw this trip, we knew it was perfect for us. Alittle pricey at first was our first thoughts (£130 each) but we had a private box, own tote, free drink and free canapes all day !! perfect and honestly worth the money.

This is one of the oldest and biggest race course. We have not visited inside but we had look from top of the hill entrance of fort. This seems very good. Did not get chance to enter this.

We visited Port Louis in December with our one year old kid, Everywhere was in Christmas mood. For food lovers, you can see small restaurants variety of cuisines along the port side. Alcohol is also served. Shopping for dress and souvenirs are a bit expensive. You need to really bargain to get some good discount. Weather was nice.

It was really a treat to watch the 2nd oldest race course in the world,from the fort,on a no racing day.Enjoyed the little details from my binoculars and clicked a few shots too.I can well imagine the excitement of the racing day.All must see even without race.

there were no races going on when we visited the city. We saw the race course from the top of the Citadel Fort, and it presented a nice view

If you are looking for something different and enjoy the races, try this. The races are very well organized to a high international standard. Try and book a package from your hotel and get a place in a box, it is worth it.

Loved the huge trees and ambience inside the track. Outside the masses around the tote building was a bit overwhelming for a first time visitor. Otherwise very interesting with great views from top level in the stand.
