Its ok

Could be used for so much more. Used at the moment by minority groups on horses. With a bit of planning could be used for speedway and dragster racing too.

Went here in October as the horse I own a stake in was running. Never been before but first thing I liked as the car parking was free...too many courses charge for this so was refreshing change. The track itself is gorgeous and whilst the stands and surrounding area are very tight and small, it creates a lovely atmosphere I... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and we do value your feedback. We have extended the owners and trainers facilities with the addition of the decking area this year, however we do understand that on busy meetings the facility is on the small side. It is something we are hoping to look at in the future... More

Being from the Midlands, I've visited most of the local tracks (Worcester, Ludlow, Stratford, Warwick, Cheltenham etc) and was very excited to pay my first visit to the newly reopened Hereford track. What a treat it was. Unlike some of the other tracks mentioned (ahem....Worcester) there are cash machines, loads of choice of food outlets and many bars (we especially... More

A fantastic day at Hereford Racecourse for the first National Hunt meeting for almost 4 years since the course was controversially closed by ARC at the end of 2012. A crowd of 4501 welcomed the return of racing and there was a Cheltenham Festival style roar as the tape flew back at the start of the first race won by... More

Came back to Hereford Races to mark the greatly anticipated reopening against all odds having visited many times in the past. Unsurprisingly there was a huge crowd of over 4,500 which meant greater difficulty in getting about. Bookies and Tote coped well although one or two more operatives at the Tote windows would have been welcome. Sadly, there was a... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review and for supporting us on our first raceday in four years. We'll take your comments about the number of rubbish bins on board, we did have a large crowd so the volume of rubbish was higher than anticipated but we'll look to address this ahead of our next raceday on...

October 2016 saw the re opening of a course where racing first took place in 1771 ( no I was not at that meet) This a great National Hunt viewing course, a tight right hand track with challenging jumps. There are two principal restaurants the newly refurbished Rusty Bridge and box allocations. There are quite a few onsite bars and... More

This course is opening again for racing in October I believe. I have attended Arabian race days here and although the actual racing facilities seem good and it's a nice course, the public areas are a bit run down. If you look at the stands from the track-side; they're desperate for a lick of paint. There are lovely grass areas... More

We stopped here on our way back up north from Epsom. The car park is just a field. It was free to get in due to it being an Arabian race day, I would have felt ripped off it we had of paid! The grounds are dated. The bar area is dated. It is in need of immediate TLC. It... More

A fairly vast green space in the north of the city of Hereford. The main "Roman Road" which runs along the northern flank of the city (from east to west as we approached), seemed to be the easiest option for us. We found the parking here to be ample (when opened to the public). A small golf course, leisure centre,... More
