    This racecourse has improved since my last visit 2 years ago but still has a way to go , standing at the back of the middle stand of 3 it was extremely unpleasant due to the pungent aroma filtering th...  more »

    Not a great experience to be honest. The weather didn't help, but we were forced indoors by rain for most of the day. We found a table in the 1811 bar, but the food choices were limited. When we asked...  more »

  • Great atmosphere, great day out Went for the first race of the season - good Friday family fun day. We purchased grandstand tickets for a special £15pp offer. There was plenty for children of all ages to do, petting zoo, circus tricks, face painting.... The food tents were quite pricey, but, by the looks of the food, it looked worth the price. We didn't buy food as we ate before going. The cider was £4.50 for a pint of Knightsbridge, i believe the Stella and guineas was the same too. There were plenty if bookies stands, so you were always going to get to place a bet Big screen TVs on side of race track, so if your in the seated area, or stood by the side of the course, you can always see where your horse is. The toilets were extremely busy (ladies) but, never ran out of toilet paper, they were kept reasonably clean, and plenty of hand soap. There's lots of paths, so if it was raining, and you didn't want to get muddy on the grass, there's no need to worry. My only advice is dress up warm. Being the highest racecourse in the UK, it could be lovely and warm in bath, but get up on the racecourse and it's cold and breezy. Overall, a great day out for all
  • Lovely atmosphere. One of the smaller racecourses but rightly very popular. Good selection of drinks, food a bit limited but all racecourses seen to struggle to sell vegetarian food!
  • Had a lovely day watching our horse come 2nd... the facilities were very nice... although better viewing for owners would be excellent.
  • Great day only problem was getting out, very busy and no stewards control in three ques..
  • The access there is dreadful, especially in case of a popular event. Sometime the security and traffic helpers are not very well organised. One should be very careful because in case of a family event there will be kids emerging unexpectedly from between parked cars. The venue is large, well maintained and perfect for every sort of party or conference, however I believe it will do better with a wider drive.
