  • Fantastic racecourse. Easy access very welcoming professional staff, usually get to go to the bigger meetings (travelling from London Kings Cross) so quality racing. Value for money. Plenty to eat/drink. Always go county stand good view of the racing good atmosphere, easy access to the parade ring (honourable mention to Leigh Mackenzie) parade ring commentary. What’s not to like 🏇🏻 (so much better experience than Ascot) recommend
  • Superb food, awesome service in the executive sweet. They couldn't have done enough for us at work. Got some tips as they had a bookkeeper come in and some actually won 🏆 Love this annual event each year and can't wait for the next one 😊
  • First visit to this racecourse and had a lovely time, we're not drinkers so did find the lack of soft drink options an issue as the bars kept refusing to give us cordial (despite offering to pay extra) unless we bought an alcoholic drink. The staff were generally friendly apart from one female steward who refused to let us back in after popping back to the car despite having our tickets and the rest of our family still being inside the grounds, we had to beg and plead even though we were told by another member of staff we would be allowed back in. Other than those issues the day was enjoyable and there are plenty of places to get something to eat (extortionate prices but that is to be expected).
  • Generally a nice place but you have to queue for EVERYTHING. The shuttle bus only leaves when the bus is 50% over capacity. Nice lager. Nice food. Horse racing is great as you can win money.
  • People come from all over the country to York Racecourse (usually dressed up in their best posh frock!). They are rarely disappointed. There are suites, bars, food outlets, function rooms, lots of parking, buses up from town, and more. Prices, of course, are always going to be high but it's a captive audience so that is a given. Frankly, if you are going to the racecourse you are probably going to have a good time either watching the races, attending a music gig or just drinking in the bars!
