A bit of a bad experience at the firework display a few years ago and no sorry no anything, and my overall experience of a place I frequent often due to a sport I love and live locally, small choice of bars depending on the price of your ticket small choice of food outlets, one cafe at which the queue is always around the block as it's very popular with hot drinks on cold days, being at the top of a hill cold wet weather is a disaster if your attending, can be boring in between races compared to other race tracks, the place has seemed to have lost all its glitz and glam and excitement in the adult years I have been attending, it could be awesome with a few changes.
A great place to watch racing at a much improved racecourse. A new stand has now been built which provides much improved hospitality and views over the course. A great atmosphere on a Friday evening meeting !🏇🏇🏇
