On race days we can't park outside our own homes due to dubious parking restrictions set by the racecourse, not the council. Cones put out with no notice except a leaflet through the door once a year, dangerous for children when 4wheel drive vehicles parked on the pavements on local streets, anti social behaviour due to people relieving themselves in...

Great day out for all the family, especially on New Year's Day. One thing that lets you down is the selection of drinks at the bar.

The newly modernised main stand and the recently completed hospitality building make for an excellent corporate or private day out. I've been fortunate to attend as a paying punter and a privileged corporate guest, either way its a super day out, good access to bars, on course betting and the tote (for us amateurs). The food is superb, and if... More

This independent racecourse offers all year racing with both flat and jumps and due to it's coastal location is rarely thwarted by the weather. Excellent facilities for a venue of it's size with a variety of race days to suit most people, one small negative is admission fee which is a little high so maybe best for a special day... More

Having visited many race couses throughout the country I was impressed by the set up here. Loads of undercover and out door bar and restaurant viscilities, good views of the race track. Yes, it was more expensive than I had expected at £20 entry then £4 for a beer but overall a professionally run venue.

Well organized race meeting with world class horses and jockeys, always a warm and friendly crowd at Musselburgh, Bar prices are crazy way to expensive.

An excellent day out. On course facilities are very good. Transport links from Edinburgh make this an easy place to visit by car or public transport

Went to the course on Friday night as an owner. The O/T parking is now situated on the track opposite the stands near to the stables. Also new to me compared with previous visits was the two course meal. I had soup followed by Haddock and chips. Both were very good. Derek Thompson was MC for the evening and kept... More
