A lovely evening out, quite small as a race course but can get up close to see the horses. Very friendly for all ages. Lovely on a summers evening

My wife and both enjoyed our first ever day at the races, even though our respective flutters were fruitless. This is a terrific venue and well worth a visit even if you are novices. All the staff that we met there were friendly and obliging. We journeyed from Windsor town to the racecourse by river boat along the Thames, which... More

We went on the Spring opener - the daytime meet. As it was in the Easter holidays I would have expected more for children. I don't mean in terms of rides or anything like that but unless your child drinks coke, orange juice (I was even offered Red Bull as an alternative for my 12 year old) - it comes... More

I am not a betting man, but a little flutter at the races was on the cards I have been to Royal Ascot, so I knew that Royal Windsor was a smaller racecourse. That being said I was lucky to get a sunny day, and a place near the grandstand. Where we had a great day of races, beer, (sparkling... More

This race course is a little gem. Went on a Monday evening and we were lucky with the weather. Plenty of places to eat and drink. Not too crowded.

Monday night racing with fair weather is hard to beat. For the first time I took the boat to the course from opposite Browns and can't imagine doing it another way again - great to casually step from the boat and be at the entrance within a minute. Easy access to food/drinks facilities and generally very well kept course. Will... More

I am reviewing my experience from the Star Wars Firework and Laser Display on 5th November 2016. I have never been before and found it very easy to find from the M4 - coming from the Reading direction.
