  • Only walked round when visiting Balloon Fest. Large enclosure but very impressive Racetrack, as I work at a racecourse in Scotland I would like to visit during race meeting.  more »
  • Great day out. Yes it was packed for EBOR Saturday day but amazing atmosphere even the rain in the afternoon could not damper. We took a taxi there and shuttle bus back into York. Really well...  more »
  • You cannot blame the poor weather for a terrible approach to customer service. I will make a very honourable exception for the front of house staff at the Gimcrack restaurant who could not do enough.....  more »
  • Excellent experience. Never been before. Took my disabled son who is in a wheelchair. Good parking spot. Fast tracked through the bag check area. Friendly helpful staff. A great day out.
  • This racecourse is amazing. We go on every year on a bus trip on the Thursday to the ebor meeting. We also use to go Before this with our parents when we were children. It's a fabulous day out only concern I had this time was that they had security on the entrance of the toilets straight after the last race and would not allow people in. Never happened all the time I've been going to york. ( disgraceful).
  • Was out here for the annual geek convention (York Unleashed). Very well laid out and well sign marked building, lots of space, although it can get crowded at times. Fully wheelchair accessible, but you have to move between a couple different elevators to get to every floor.
  • Great days racing poor seating or none in grandstand. Getting out of car park after racing shocking. One hour and we are still in car park, no stewards etc, absolute disgrace, never again
  • Fantastic experience at the ebor event loved every minute. Atmosphere was amazing. Expensive for beers about 6 quid a pint. But what a brilliant place. Great views at finish line and parade ring were excellent. Had I've cream for 2.70 which was really good. Can't wait to go again
