“All You Would Want at a Race Meeting”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Musselburgh offers the best you could wish for at a race meeting. The course is easily accessible either by car, by bus or by train (Wallyford Station- transfer provided). The course operates throughout the year with National Hunt racing in the winter and Flat Racing in the summer months. The welcome is friendly, and there is a good choice of quality food available at very reasonable prices compared with catering at other racecourses. All of the course is visible from the stands, and everything is very compact - the perfect introduction to horse racing.

“New Year races.”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

A special atmosphere especially if there is a horse race as well. It is good to see old friends and well wishers on New Years day.

“Great Fun Day with the Love of my Life”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Went there and noticed that it's a lot smaller the usual racecourses that I've been too with my girlfriend. However, it was really an excellent place to hang out. The racing was really facinating and we really enjoyed everything about the place. I love the food we had at a considerable price. Definitely something I look forward to going back to. Although next time I'm hoping to go out there with some of my closest friends soon, surely it would really be a great time.

“Great craic!”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

What a beautiful open course this is, having been to many racecourses this is by far one of my favourites. It is very cheap to get in and is always packed, even when it is raining. The staff are always very helpful and if you have kids there is always extra activities put on for them to enjoy. I would always put this at the top of your list if visiting the area, before you travel check when the racing is on and get some tickets bought, great atmosphere which leads to good old craic!
