We got in just by showing our ID passport and received a free pen. The staff was really friendly and the way was marked. It was nice sitting between locals and the atmosphere was good.

What an active and lively event! The people, the refreshments, and then the races themselves all made for a great evenings entertainment! Standing at the rail and watching the horses and jockeys work was exciting and fun!

I am not sure as I went at night but I seem to remember that children can go but you are right they cannot go into certain areas - it is worth looking on the site as it is very clear but you will have a fab time,
