Had an enjoyable day at the Easter race meeting at Musselburgh racecourse. Majority of ground is Tarmac so even although it rained you don't have to walk on wet grass. The facilities are good and suitable for all ages. The atmosphere is electric especially when the racehorses come thundering towards the winning post.

First time at Musselburgh racecourse, and i will return. Arrived and parked up, and declined the shuttle bus from the car park to the racecourse enterance as we wanted to go into the town centre. Great racecourse, with very good facilities. Pity we couldnt pick a winner, but that never spoilt a good day, at a very good racecourse.

I visited on New Years Day with friends and had a great day! The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Despite the horrible weather there was great atmosphere and every one seemed to be enjoying their day as much as we all did. I would recommend it for a fun day out!

Great day had by all the family. Managed to get a table in the marquee and could see the track from there. Opted to head outside to watch the race. Bar inside marquee had decent selection of drinks, had to pay city centre prices for drink but was expected. Good selections for places to eat and plenty of clean wash... More

25 years ago Musselburgh Racecourse was a dilapidating Victorian ruin. Thanks to huge investment even those who pay the lowest entry have more comfort for refreshment than the members, owners and trainers bar provided all those years ago! Full colour, very handily sized and detailed racecards are available for £2.50 on entry. Those opting for the cheapest entry can enjoy... More

Musselburgh racecourse is a fantastic venue. I have attended a few meetings this year and thoroughly enjoy the day out. The facilities are spotless. We sampled food in the Bistro, we were served quickly and the staff were very nice. Excellent Day out racing.
