I heard rumours they were planning the close this racecourse so I thought seeing as I had some time on my hands I'd check it out. The train from Waterloo seems to take forever even though it's only 45mins, the station is around 2 mins from the course. I took in a couple of local pubs before the off which... More

There has been a lot in the press recently regarding the sale of Kempton Park Racecourse for property development by the Jockey Club. They say they will invest the money in Sandown and build an all weather track at Newmarket. Well Kempton is a much nicer place to visit than Sandown and it is also the nearest track to London....

Came there in 2009 Dec, this was one of my last places to visit while in London . I was invited by our school, we then took many beautiful photos there. Enjoyed the beautiful lake in the park!)

The racecourse facilities were much as you would expect. Good free parking, good view of parade ring and decent one of the races. What struck me was that the staff were pleasant, especially the girl who assisted my daughter at the free pony rides.

Been here a few times, most recently today for a wedding exhibition. It will be a shame if it closes as there are always things happening here apart from the racing which it is famous for. Always a good atmosphere on race days and then there's the market on Thursdays.

We went to the Boxing Day meeting here this year . A wonderful break in the Christmas calendar and the 2016 meeting produced some very good races - and a bit of drama with a couple of falling horses in the novice event ( but thankfully no rider or horse was injured ). A very welcome, enjoyable break from the... More

We went on Boxing Day 2016 and had a fun day out. We just bought the cheapest tickets to the Festival stand, took the DLSR and had a fun day out. About £17 a ticket but you can spend a lot more on a corporate box or use one of the restaurants but you need to have fairly deep pockets... More

It welcomes families will... More

Night glow run was so funny, especially as you were running round the course where the horses run. Good facilities and loads of parking. Good night out.
