5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

Nice to see everyone make the effort to look smart on the day even. I only have gone on special race days I need to try a regular meet sometime.

“Ebour meeting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

York racecourse is my favourite place to watch horse racing, especially for the famous Ebour meeting. Great champagne bar in the main stand with great atmosphere. Just don't forget to watch the horses!!

“Great Ebour meeting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

Make the annual journey every year to the festival or watch the Ebour race. This is the best meeting we go to all year, the weather never let's us down. The course is always very clean, the grandstands over great views of the track, lots of places to eat and plenty of bars around. If you arrive by train I would get the bus provided to the course it's only a couple of pound return.

“Music Weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

Love York Races you get to have a couple of bets on the horses and then get to watch a live back in the late afternoon a great family day but if you are taking kids you must have eyes like a hawk as it gets so busy they could just wonder off but plenty of people to help but well worth a day out enjoyed by lots of people. They have plenty of food tents and also drinks you will have to que for most things

“Annual venture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

Ever year since 2008 we have attended a race meeting here and never been disappointed. The facilities are always clean and tidy, the bars are reasonably priced but queues are always expected. Still waiting for the big win... maybe this year!!!!
