Thank you for review - we're thrilled to hear you had a great day out and do certainly recommend the water taxi from Windsor town centre near Browns Bar to get to the racecourse. The 10 minute cruise down the River Thames is the perfect way to start a relaxing evening at the races!

We hope to see you again soon.

Best regards,

Royal Windsor Racecourse

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Brilliant, we love racing but this is by far the best racecourse that we've been to. If you stay in Windsor, go to the races by boat not car as it just gives it a wonderful start to the day!

“Great Family Event”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

I have been Windsor Racing just once a year for some years and have never been dissapointed. It is a real family atmosphere from arriving to leaving, friendly people attend, service is good in all the Bars and Restaraunts and the facilities for kids are outstanding.

Like everywhere in the UK it is even better if the weather is good. Do try the Restaraunts, the food is really good value for money and wine is reasonably priced.

Thanks Windsor Racecourse we only wish we had time to come more often, especially Monday evenings after a days work.

Thanks for your review Ray - we're always pleased to hear that racegoers are enjoying the day and that we're making families welcome! Our family days are becoming more and more popular thanks to everyone spreading the word and we hope to make them bigger and better every time making sure there are plenty of free children's activities on site for them to enjoy as well as the racing. As you know our Monday night fixtures are a favourite and we hope you can make it to see us for one of those soon - they certainly are the perfect way to unwind after a day's work!

Best regards,

“Pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

Had not been to Windsor races since they stopped the jump racing there many years back but the 'Hog Roast & Real Ale' night enticed me back. Started with a pleasant river taxi to the course and found the course facilities quite good. Competitive betting market and reasonable viewing for the last 4 furlongs. Paddock area quite nice and relaxed too. Bit of a bottleneck between course and paddock mainly due to lagerboys standing around the bar watching the TVs but otherwise good night out.

Welcome back Mikey! So pleased to hear that you returned and enjoyed the evening - our foodie theme nights are becoming a favourite and it's great to get feedback on that. Thanks for your note on the high concentration of people in that particular area, we'll see if we can get someone to keep an eye on that on busy racedays to make sure the traffic through there can keep flowing.

Hopefully we'll see you again soon.

Best regards,

Royal Windsor Racecourse

“Pity it was so cold!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

Went last night for the first time. You'd think end of June it would be lovely but too many ladies in lovely dresses were caught out, me included! We had the cheapest tickets which meant there was no shelter anywhere. That said we did get a hog roast bap and beer. No veggie alternative sadly and the soft drink was coke or fanta - not great if you're driving.
The free car park was fine and only a few minutes walk to the stands.
The large screen TV allowed for good viewing throughout the races.
Entertainment was also provided by a guitar player /singer.
Children get in free which is excellent!
Would definitely go again but would take a jumper!

Thank you for your review. So sorry that the weather couldn't add to your night to make it better - we do our best to keep the good weather on order but sometimes it lets us down. We were really pleased that so many ladies turned up having made a stunning effort with their outfits - it looked fantastic and hopefully we can turn the heat up a bit for next year's ladies night!

Many thanks for all your feedback and we hope to see you again soon. With an emergency cardigan if needed!

Best regards,
