10th year and this time is was just too busy. It is very well organised. Layout of things changes slightly every year. Queues this year though were too long for everything probably as it was on a Saturday and they gad upped the numbers. Great fun for a day out though

As a resident of Australia, I attended the race meeting and couldn't see a thing due to marquees. I reported my concern on the day and then ten days later via email. I received no reply to my complaint-how bad is that?

Just attended the race meeting on the day before ladies day and really it was extremely poor. The tents for hospitality fir the next day blocked the view of the racing from virtually all but the top steps of the stand. There were no rolls or snacks available after the first race. On mentioning this i was told they would... More

Taking advantage of the courtesy coach from Wallyford Park and Ride, I arrived alone and with some trepidation at a misty Musselburgh Racecourse, where guests were assembling in their matching bags and shoes, keen to take advantage of this ideal chance to practice their betting and trend spotting skills; and The Blackbird Pop-Up and The Pommery were among two places...

An excellent course with more races and bigger prizes every year. The course goes around the "Old Course" a nine hole golf course that was used to play the Open championship years ago. The racecourse is also the venue for Gala's, and other local amusements. The grandstand has a good restaurant and bar.

There was no criticism of our day at the races, £15 per person which was our entry, £6 free bets, a free drink and a fish supper all in, great atmosphere and a cracking day out.
