One of the best racecourses in the country hosts flat meetings throughout the summer and whilst you might lose a couple of quid here and there - it's a great day out regardless! Neigh bother!

Went to view the racecourse as a potential conference venue. Went 2 days after their last big meeting of the season and they kept apologising for the condition of the venue but it was lovely, beautifully kept and a credit to all the staff there, who clearly take a huge pride in their course. Really looking forward to using it... More

Sadly last car boot of the year today - withdrawal symptoms until they start up again Easter 2017. There is a good antiques fair inside in the warmth on New Year's Day just to keep you ticking over

The premier racecourse in the North, well worth a visit. Facilities are top notch, racing of a high standard and the crowd are up for a good day out. York city makes for a good night afterwards as well. Would particularly recommend visiting during the Ebor festival in August.

We have never paid to enjoy the racing in the stands. If you enjoy a party with friends or just the two of you take the lower priced infield option , you can enjoy the extra space and still have all the betting , loos and food.
