Good day out. Everyone there enjoyed themselves. They have various areas like champagne bar and normal bars. Champagne about £40-60 a bottle depending on what you buy. Good day out though. Lots of security on. Police patrols too. Safe and well controlled.

Yes I believe they do. Think these are at the entrances. Not 100% though. You may want to contact the race course direct and ask at the customer services department to make double sure. Tel 01904 620 911

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.
