  • Great place for a day out. You don’t even need to be a gambler just enjoy the magnificent horses, soak up the atmosphere. Plenty of beer tents and some live music. And well you’ve got to have at least one bet. Thankfully a winner. That will do nicely
  • It is a place for your event. I was here for a Doncaster Business show and the venue fitted in over a thousand people, visitors. Even though it was winter, the venue was not cold but properly ventilated. The toilets were many for delegates to use and clean too at that. If you want to hold an event, wedding or any party that requires number, you will be delighted to book the venue. I am looking forward to a proper race some day.
  • Easy access to parking and major roads upon leaving. Excellent facilities. Teams are helpful. Dress code is enforced which I like. Catering in boxes is superb. Really recommend Doncaster Racecourse
  • Great local racecourse dont understand why people travel all over the country when this is on the doorstep. The fireworks on bonfire are 1st class and some of the events they host are really good
  • Nice racecourse close to Doncaster town. Several function rooms and eating places. Good views of the racecourse.
