One of the most beautiful racecourses in England. Lots of places to drink and eat, only downside not many places to sit and can get very rowdy with hen/stag parties.

In the county section suits are required but in other sections smart casual, people were in jeans but most people tend to get dressed up

The County Stand is fine. Good catering and sheltered seating,, near the winning post and parade ring. Dress smart and enjoy. We had a good day out. Can't advise about hotels though there is plenty of accommodation nearby.
