Went to the new years' day races. There's plenty going on here and the place is clean and tidy. Not a massive racecourse by any means but a nice place. Right handed track, chase and hurdles track. The turns are quite tight.

Love going to Musselburgh to try to win a few £s, sip a few wines & watch the many characters who are there to celebrate different occasions. Horse racing is incidental when there is so much to see. Also love the music in the tent...More

We spent 2 days at the race course. Both days very enjoyable. Weather was lovely, which always helps on a race day. This is a lovely course, plenty of seating. Will definitely visit again next year.

The Epperstone package £125/head good at lunchtime but evening races not so good. Dinner rushed and poor quality. View of racecourse great and access to the paddock good etc. Great way to spend an evening.More
