  • A group of 9 of us all ages visited on 28.05.17 for the family fun day. A great start finding a table and chairs for us to use as a meeting point and have our picnic. Unfortunately it decided to torre...  more »

  • We hired Fontwell House for a 90th birthday party. Claire, Patsy and their staff could not have been more helpful, professional or easy to work with. They were brilliant and the whole event was excellent. Thank you.
  • An intimate race course. Good fields for six races. October fest theme could have been more obvious. But a good day out.
  • Fontwell fireworks 2017 WHAT A JOKE!!!!!!!!! I will be taking today up with trading standards and the directors. Where do I start..... firstly we came from the direction of Bury Hill which was clear, upon approaching the first of the two roundabouts which lead to the race track we hit traffic, not just any traffic, standstill traffic!!! we were only 400/500 metres from the entrance and it took us one hour & forty minutes to park the car. when we approached the gate, some women told us to keep left and follow the cars down to the very bottom of the car park, as she said that I noticed LOADS of parking to the right of me, I asked why can't we go there and she firstly ignored me, then I said it a few more times to be told "it's flooded, no one can park there" EVERYTHING WAS BLOODY FLOODED!!!! I then said well I'm in a 4x4 its fine, she then replied: " No sorry because if I let you park there, everyone will want the same treatment" !!!!!!! at this point, we had twenty minutes until the fireworks started so we just park down the very bottom of the car park. Once we walked up towards the entrance, every other car had given up and parked in all the space I saw available when I came in....PISSED!!! Next chapter. We had purchased the last private box tickets as we promised our children we would take them and was under the impression we could get tickets on the door... ( that worked didn't it Fontwell?!) We got our tickets from the box office and were told on the phone we would have someone show us to our own private box, did we get anyone?! NO, WE DIDN'T!!!!! It took us 10 minutes to find out where to go, anyway moving forward. We finally got to our private box which cost £226 (including tickets) We all thought " well we are finally here, never mind let's just enjoy the fireworks. 3.....2.....1..... "MUSIC STARTS" WE CANT SEE THE FIREWORKS!!!!!!!!! There is a low profile roof that goes out from the top of the boxes and over 50/60% of the seats. We missed nearly every single firework because it was exploding out of eyesight due to the low profile roof!! Pissed off and just wanting to get home, we finally got to the car and was then stuck in more standstill traffic trying to get out!!! there were no wardens at the bottom of the car park to direct traffic. FOR YOU WHEN YOU READ THIS FONTWELL... WE WILL BE GETTING A FULL REFUND. YOU COULD NOT A PISSED THIS UP ANYMORE IF YOU TRIED. YOU SOLD US A PREMIUM TICKET AND COULDNT EVEN SEE THE FIREWORKS, YOU NEED TO GET RID OF YOUR WARDENS/ TRAIN THEM CORRECTLY FOR THE JOB. THE.. WORST....NIGHT.... EVER....
  • Fontwell Park Antiques fair. A nice bank holiday excursion with plenty of stalls and variety. Marred though on this August bank holiday by the lack of any refreshment facility. Someone had helpfully got some instant coffee and cups but this was not really up to the job.
  • Excellent race course free parking good viewing opportunities. Well managed and welcoming.
