I have visited this venue for the Arc for the last two years and found it a good Racecourse. It is well staffed up, got plenty of facilities bars, toilets, etc. and the queuing time isn't too bad and prices reasonable considering the magnitude of the event. The price of the tickets to get in are reasonably priced as well.... More

The place itself is enchanting: you can picture Hemingway and his wife (the first one) resting in the garden placing two or three bets on fine horses or imagine those days of enormous berets passing by graciously. Then there is the betting, although not as simple as in the US, still if you know what a win, place, show, parlay,... More

Created in 1857 by architect Antoine-Nicolas Bailly, the Longchamp racecourse is devoted to flat racing; it is here each year that the 'Grand Prix de Paris' is contested. Formerly, on the occasion of the French national holiday, a solemn review of the troops of the Paris garrison was carried out. Today, 12,000 spectators can be accommodated in the stands and... More

Here for the Arc and what an beautiful course this is. Treve merchandise absolutely everywhere as you can imagine. A few bars scattered about and bookies behind main stand, was bit strange as used to the umbrellas I'm front of track. Would definitely recommend a visit if you like your racing

I go every year to Longchamp for the Arc. It's one of my favourite tracks in the world, and I've been to a lot. The price is brilliant, first time I went it was 4 Euros to get in and this is for one of the biggest races in the world amongst other Grp 1s. Compare that to £70 to... More

Visited for the Prix De L'Arc De Triomphe at the start of October and was hugely impressed!! Was a little apprehensive as for such a big meeting the tickets seemed to be very cheap but don't be put off, it's just great value. The whole place felt very special, really easy to get there on the metro and reasonably priced... More

Attending the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp in 2015 was the fulfillment of a long-held aspiration. The racing was great. The turf course was beautiful. And the class of horses was top-notch. We had booked to have lunch and grandstand seats. The food was fine although the dining area was cramped. And while our grandstand seats gave an... More

Having finally managed to get to longchamp for the prix de l'arc de triomphe, I was not disappointed! There is the free shuttle bus from the 3 recommended stations, which takes you to the race course. We purchased tickets on the day, which was easy and didn't take long. Once in the race course, it was a great experience. It's... More

Brilliant racing, eight group 1 races on Sunday including the Arc and a bunch of group 2 races on the Saturday , a much quieter but really pleasant day out. No bookies only the French "Tote" but a vast array of different bets available. Two days racing costs less than £20 with reasonable food and drink prices in the course.... More
