I have both worked at and attended ST Ledger races and thoroughly enjoyed both, the atmosphere is amazing and the races are fun for both the experienced gambler and the hit and hope kind. :)

This is one of the best racecourses in Britain. A good value for money, children under 18 are free which makes this an affordable day out for the family. Well worth the visit

Although I've lived in Doncaster all my life, this was my first time at the races. I have to travel past the racecourse every day to work, and although it looks nice from the outside I was more than a little surprised once i stepped inside. It is very well maintained, and the view from the grandstand of the entire racecourse, Doncaster common and the surrounding area was an impressive site indeed. The grandstand area we were in, was quite busy (busier than I expected) and there was a good atmosphere. The view was good and there were clearly visible screens that were well placed to ensure you could see the action wherever you were sat/stood.

The food and drinks were well provisioned with different stores kiosks in the large hall under the grandstand and also a couple of restaurants to choose from. even though it was quite busy service was prompt and the queues fast flowing. There was a decent choice of food from snacks and sweets to full hot meals. Prices were realistic as well, which was good to see as i expected them to be on the high side; add to this the fact the entrance ticket was lass than £10 and this made for an enjoyable and affordable summer evening out.

Doncaster is a very nice racecourse, with commanding views over the whole area. The parade ring is at the front, so you can see what is going on without leaving the stands if you want. Food and drink is expensive, but then that is always the case at this kind of event. Avoid the big occasions if you don't like crowds of drunks, or pay the extra to go into the Members enclosure.
