“evening races with the kids”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

had a fab evening at the races with the family. dint win much but the atmostphere was great. the kids loved seeing the horses parade really close and were ecstastic wen their horses won. its a great day out if you go take a picnic in the family enclosure . kids under 16 get in free. drinks and food expensive but take your own. good fun if you like a little flutter.

Many thanks for spending a few moments writing a review on your Doncaster Racecourse experience.

Under 18s - not just under 16s - get in free to all standard race meetings - racing is always a great day out for all the family and we even run a kids club (Young Hooves) here.

Food and drinks prices are in line with other large entertainment/sports venues, however you can bring your own into the Family Enclosure (no alcohol).

We will make sure your kind comments are fed back to the whole team here and we hope to see you again very soon.

All the best, Doncaster Racecourse
