Horse racing at the Port Louis Racetrack is a tradition here. There is a visitor's box available on request if there's room. Great fun for an afternoon of entertainment even if you're not a horse racing or gambling enthusiast.

One of the oldest racing track in the world, surely a family fun day attraction to go on a Saturday . See the local people united under one roof . A lifetime souvenir.

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.

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
