One of the best racecourses in the country hosts flat meetings throughout the summer and whilst you might lose a couple of quid here and there - it's a great day out regardless! Neigh bother!

Went to view the racecourse as a potential conference venue. Went 2 days after their last big meeting of the season and they kept apologising for the condition of the venue but it was lovely, beautifully kept and a credit to all the staff there, who clearly take a huge pride in their course. Really looking forward to using it... More

Sadly last car boot of the year today - withdrawal symptoms until they start up again Easter 2017. There is a good antiques fair inside in the warmth on New Year's Day just to keep you ticking over

The premier racecourse in the North, well worth a visit. Facilities are top notch, racing of a high standard and the crowd are up for a good day out. York city makes for a good night afterwards as well. Would particularly recommend visiting during the Ebor festival in August.

My first experience of a 'big' race course. Very impressed and will definitely make an effort to come back to this course.

We have never paid to enjoy the racing in the stands. If you enjoy a party with friends or just the two of you take the lower priced infield option , you can enjoy the extra space and still have all the betting , loos and food. Yes the sunshine makes if a perfect day , because you don't have... More

Lovely course and great day had by all. Only downside is they have stopped drinks being taken outside so you couldn't sit at the race track side with a drink you have to go inside for a drink. As we were on a celebration we had booked the county stand and we were hoping to sit with a glass of... More
