As a special treat I purchased Penthouse tickets for Bath Festival.

Booked cream tea for racing and James Blunt. The thing that really made it for us was the staff. Couldn't do enough for us. Food was lovely, drinks spot on, but the service was above and beyond!

I can't help thinking that this place needs a kick into the 21st century. Just because thousands of people go the stakeholders obviously think it is working well. It is not. Any racecourse will bring high levels of camaraderie and fun and therefore tolerance of...More

Bought as a present for my wife. First time either of us had been to the races and Bath was a great choice. Get close to the horses and the winning post, have a small better and hopefully collect your winnings.
