  • I've only been here for the car boot sales they sometimes have on a Sunday. Seems like a nice place with tons of parking and some okay facilities. Will update if I ever go for race day.
  • Rather pleasant venue for a conference, although we weren't there on race day.
  • Great racecourse in a good location, easy to get to, great facilities and a great day out can be had by all.
  • Stayed on the caravan site. Ok it's windy at times, but, you are on top of a big hill what'd you expect. Free to watch the racing if you're staying on site although you cannot arrive on race day with caravan in tow. Limited exits on race day. Central location for sight seeing.
  • Was here for a one day conference. Good venue with easy parking, and a good lunch - which is always important!
