Sells itself as 'Britains most scenic racecourse' and having visited half of them myself so far, it's hard to argue! Lovely views wherever you look across the course. We paid to for the Paddock (£12) as opposed to Club (£20) and found it great value...More

Great day out. Good track and it's nice to have a cheeky bet. Dog friendly. Can't bring alcohol in but that's standard at most racecourses but they do hold it for you or let you take it back to your car.
