We wnt racing here in December on a Monday. It was a cold day ..but what do you expect in December! Yet we had a good day! The facilities are good - it's quite a small racetrack and compact. The grandstands are good - you can get to see almost all of the race course. There are not that many food outlets - but I guess int eh summer months they do increase.
Easy to find and easy to get round - we had a nice day allround - but didn't win!
Having never been to the races before, I didn't know what to expect. Would I be rolling in pound notes after picking the winning horse? Would I be drowning in champagne after putting my house up on the loser?
What we got was a nice day out - dressed up, looking smart, having a flutter.
It wasn't quite the glamorous affair I'd had in mind. We'd booked in for a Champagne Afternoon Tea and Blues package. The staff were nice and friendly. The champagne was ice cold. The afternoon tea we VERY mediocre and took ages to arrive.
Sadly the biggest let down was the crowd. Lovely as everyone was, it wasn't exactly high rollers and the upper crust. It was every day folk like me, wearing nice clothes and having a gamble. Hen parties, groups of mates. All very nice, but just not quite what I was hoping.
A nice day out with the family or with a group of friends.
