York Racecourse reviews from tripadviser.co.uk

Enjoyable day out at the races

We all ( 8 of us) had a most enjoyable afternoon at the races, we had lunch in the County Stand Restaurant although the weather was a bit inclement it was no problem as we had a table inside and wandered outside to watch the races, the only problem we had was when the races were finished and we went for our taxis the heavens opened and we all got a soaking as there is no cover at the taxis rank and it was a very long queue,
needless to say none of us won any money but it was worth the experience.

Lovely fun racecourse

Excellent facilities here and a great British racecourse. We have been in all enclosures and always had fun whether in suits or shorts.
Plenty of cover if weather dodgy and plenty of bars and eateries. Look forward to returning soon.

Music weekend

My wife and I met with friends for a weekend in York taking in the races, this is the third time we have done this and what a brilliant time we had.
Went into the county stand (which I would highly recommend) suit and tie recommended, the weather was fine, it was easy to get a drink or food and although slightly expensive it's something to expect at a venue like this, the atmosphere was relaxed and even though I know next to nothing about horse racing I would suggest to anyone to try it.

After the races there was live music which just added to the atmosphere and made it a perfect day.

Fantastic day out

We went to york races again last saturday, although the weather was a little overcast, it did not disappoint. The racing was top drawer, the company, as ever fantastic and even backed a couple of winners.
We booked on to the annual jaunt from our local pub, a coach full of us. We were all merry by the end of the day, but what a fantastic racecourse and advertisement, it makes you proud to be a Yorkshireman. All Saints finished the day off to a tee after racing finished.

Cant wait for next year. Brilliant.

Perfect for a day out

Two friends and I all have our birthdays in June, so we tend to share our celebrations. This year we decided to go to York Racecourse for the Macmillan Charity Day in the County Stand.
The sun was shining all day, the stewards were friendly, the bar staff were courteous. Even though it was packed, we didn't have to queue more than a few minutes to place bets, get food or buy drinks.

There was a noticeable police and security presence which was reassuring and not overbearing.

Everything seemed extremely organised and the day went without a problem. If you're looking to spend the day out with friends, I'd highly recommend it.


Girls day

Last minute visit with friends as the weather was so warm, just went to cheap side truly fab day, take your own food x drink lots of laughs.

Recommend it

This racecourse is one of the nicest ones we've been to, there's a massive selection of food and drinks around the racecourse. They offer shuttle buses for £2 each which takes you from the racecourse to York train station, which is a ten minute walk to York centre were the restaurants are. Definitely recommend it.
