Railway exhibition

The Doncaster racecourse was an ideal location and venue for this exhibition, lots of room for vendors and customers/enthusiast's alike

Absolutely brilliant atmosphere. Great to see it so full. Even of the Weather is bad, you can still have a great time. Also good when there is Live Bands on after the Racing

Large charity function. The food was surprisingly good for all courses and was served promptly Only one bar open. The Latvian bartender was lovely and friendly but the drinks were just too pricey. £15.5 for two g and t doubles is crazy! If the prices were lower people would buy more! Nice venue

Had a great day out at Doncaster racecourse on Saturday. Such a shame though that the 'strict dress code' is not enforced. What is the point of having a code if its not enforced? Blatant wearing of jeans in premier area and owners and trainers. Why do you not enforce it. If I go again won't bother if I can... More

There is plenty of seating but when it rains some is not under cover. The food hall caters for all tastes and the bars serve John Smiths in good condition. People watching... More

We have visited many racecourses over the years and this one must rate amongst the worst. There was nowhere to eat except five fast food stalls in the food hall which left a lot to be desired when I asked at information desk if there was anything else I was told there was a restaurant on the fourth floor which...

I love the races, but Doncaster has become a bit tired. It's a great day out, you can take the family, get dressed up. However it needs to step back up and get serious with dress code restrictions. A da out at the races can be casual but if you want to get dressed up and pay more for the... More

Love my horse racing and always such a fantastic atmosphere at donny. Great facilities at donny just a shame they charge so much for the pizzas.
