The course has a great atmosphere and set in well cared for gardens and walking areas which has a band stand where the brass band was playing. There is plenty of seating and areas to sit down on the grass. The toilets are lovely and clean with plenty of soap and towels. The only negative is the lack of supervision... More

This is the third year running we have been to this evening meeting and every time have really enjoyed it. Ripon is a small but very friendly course. Even the rain didn't spoil our enjoyment. See you next year.

Attended the evening meeting on 4 July, our first visit to Ripon racecourse. All in all a good time, and the facilities are good. Parking was easy in the free car park and we decided upon the Paddock enclosure so that we would have access to a stand if the rain persisted. This gave us easy access to the parade... More

The evening was a pleasurable experience and the weather was not too bad (it didn't rain). The facilities were generally good but my daughter did not enjoy her meal in the café. Please note that the options below do not cover myself and grown family

Love Ripon racecourse. Very friendly laid back feel and easy to get a drink or something to eat while enjoying the racing. Easy walking distance from town.

As a regular car boot seller this was my first visit to the Ripon event. I was well impressed !!. It was well organized, friendly and worth the extra traveling distance from Leeds rather than going to the disaster that has befallen the Wetherby sale. The "no dogs" policy is a sensible idea, it's not that long ago i had... More

We drove up for a visit to the car boot and wish we hadn't bothered. There weren't many there and you can't take dogs in! Just a note to the organisers; its in a Field! In the open air! It's only a car boot sale not Harrods!

Excellent night with a great Yorkshire welcome. Lovely relaxed atmosphere at a beautiful racecourse. It helps when you have 5 winners and a second place. Thank you Ripon!

We have visited this course several times and have always enjoyed the experience. It is well organised for places to eat, we like the champagne bar and the seafood, and the closeness to the parade ground before the horses set off to race is special. Depending on the meeting it does attract some of the top jockeys so that adds... More
