The Best

Many people say this is one of the best racecourses in the UK. Easy to get to, ample parking and very close to Ripon City centre. Many attractions here to see and some great pubs.

I'm not a regular race goer. Couple years back we went with a large party to a night meeting at Ripon which we thoroughly enjoyed. We decided to return this year, alone.

On my tour of the UK's 59 remaining race courses, Ripon was number 26 and it ranks as a "must return to" track. Everything was well set out and the staff were helpful and friendly.

Known as Yorkshires garden race course. This is a very user friendly course with plenty of catering outlets to suit all pockets. Plenty of stands to watch the race from, (including a seated area). There is also a childrens play area. A great day out for everyone.

We only go once a year to the Great St Wilfred meeting as we live in germany but we make Ripon,York and Pontefract our annual racing destinations and cannot express enough how great racing in yorkshire and lancashire is. Ripon is a special delight and so friendly! Thank you
