“Something not quite there”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

Having heard how much has been spend developing the racecourse, I felt that it had a fairly tired appearance in places. The weather was pretty dire on the evening that we attended, and other than drinking, there wasn't a great deal to do undercover, though the silent disco did look inviting (I wasn't able to join in because of my group's preferences).

Brilliant place, loved the tour experience, puts it all into perspective and gives you a real flavour of the tradition. Been to a wedding here too, nice.

Came here with family and friends during the summer holidays for family day, had a great day out until it was called off due to heavy rain, We will be going again next year, I even won on a few races!
