Going racing is great especially on the days they've got a funfair and you can take the kids. All the on-course betting people are really friendly and you don;t feel too bad parting with your money, especially when you win some back.More

The racing was lots of fun and it was a nice, pleasant atmosphere. Busy, but no problems. Had a burger which was awful, chips seemed like the best alternative.
