  • Overpriced (admission and drinks (limited range)), despite the fact I was there on a so-called Family Day! Staff friendly and cheerful, free parking next to the course. I'm not big on gambling so will likely appeal to others more than it did me. Course seems outdated in comparison with others (Newbury, Ascot) I've visited.
  • Great place for a day out racing to going to one of the events, we saw Star Wars The Force Awakens and themed fireworks.
  • Flat racing on Monday evening. Events most weekends that are usually interesting & fun.
  • 2-3 times a year I manage to visit my friends in Maidenhead ,,I also get to take them to the racing ,always a fabulous day out at Royal Windsor ,great food and entertainment ,the excitement of racing ,helpful staff and stewards ,,
  • Great way to spend a quiet monday evening.
