I really like All Weather racing so for me Kempton is a good venue. Staff are nearly all cheerful and helpful. I normally go Wednesday evening meetings. The racing is generally good. The stands are normally empty! Mid winter it is a place for enthusiasts as it gets very cold and windy. The facilities are reasonably good.

Please train bar staff, they didn't even know what soda water is, then said they didn't sell it even though we had already purchased it earlier.

Visited on Wednesday for the evening meet, it was very quiet and i was disappointed not to pick any winners but access to the racecourse from London was a lot easier than i thought it was going to be and I will definitely be visiting again.

As regular race goers a bit disappointed that it was special Super heroes day for kids. Unfortunately very crowed no seats inside or out,hardly any food outlets.

We visited on a thoroughly miserable Easter Saturday and were immediatley glad we had booked a table for the day in the Panorama restaurant. This is not somewhere I would like to be outside on a miserable day or maybe on any day. The Panorama has excellent views of the entire site, as the name implies. Each table is equipped... More

Visited yesterday, was 1st visit and definitely the last. So outdated and grim. Main stand looks bleak and in major need of refurbishment or even bulldozer. For a so called premium racecourse it really is basic from bars to the 60's toilets which are like old school ones. Makes me wonder where the monies paid via the turnstiles actually goto.... More

Great racing on Bet Bright chase day. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and could easily get around although there was a large crowd. One thing that needs addressing is lack of sales points for Race cards.

Having never been to the actual race course I cannot comment on that. However as a regular to antiques fair I can say this is a must for anyone who lives in the area. That being said it is a bit tricky with young children as it is very very busy. So if poss go early early and as a... More

The racing itself was great but it's all a bit shabby and could do with a rethink. Paid for a Premium ticket (£50) but there was nothing premium about it. Rough bars, toilets, tacky food concessions. In field car parking fine but exit botched by poorly trained security staff. Chaotic website. Compared to Ascot 15 miles away it is very... More
