Visited with my wife on Senior Citizen day which is a lovely day out. Small but friendly racecoure with large free carpark and walking distance from the Town centre.

Not the prettiest of racecourses but the parking is free and it is a short walk into the town. You can see the whole course from the stands. Good service at the bar and plenty of places to sit either outside or in.

Lots of parking spaces, room to set up a picnic near the rails opposite the parade ring (half a furlong from the winning post). Toilets; bar and betting shop facilities were near - adequate. Good friendly atmosphere; helpful staff. The weather was beautiful (25 degrees).
