  • The track itself is phenomenal. American horses would benefit from the layout. For humans, it's not what Americans are used to. We did not visit the upper class accommodations, but for general admission, it is a little bit less user friendly. The betting is done with private bookmakers who are lined up outside. Food was good, somewhat limited. Limited bathroom.bathroom facilities.
  • Brilliant for walking the dogs on non race day's the numbers of wintering birds fabulous to see don't let the dogs rise the birds.
  • Good racing track. Lovely scenery and the entertainment was great. Well recommended.
  • Great place to walk the dogs and take in fresh air
  • Mmm.good track. Nice friendly as usual. .doing ok with facilities . Hopefully they will spend money on stable yard. And extend canteen.as food and staff are very good.
