We spent 2 days at the race course. Both days very enjoyable. Weather was lovely, which always helps on a race day. This is a lovely course, plenty of seating. Will definitely visit again next year.

The Epperstone package £125/head good at lunchtime but evening races not so good. Dinner rushed and poor quality. View of racecourse great and access to the paddock good etc. Great way to spend an evening.More

How they can charge what they do is outrageous! It was £20 when I visited! Which is expensive for an average race card! This is the reason racing is struggling! £50 for the upcoming ladies day!! I've been to the Irish Grand national and it...More
