Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

First visit to Redcar races, 10 minute walk from Redcar Central station, easy enough to get too,

Admission was good value, the course enclosure had plenty grassed areas for picnics etc,

Reason I only rated it 3 was the disgusting toilets, even before racing had started and long before the enclosure got busy, these were absolutely minging, cubicles without locks, toilet roll, and a floor swimming in urine, smelt like they hadn’t been cleaned for a very long time,

Wouldn’t be rushing back, not a patch on other northern courses such as Ripon/Catterick.

This is an extremely well maintained course with excellent viewing. We had our first visit today and found it welcoming and pleasant. Maybe a few more food options but to be fair the audience was not exactly packed in, so one can understand the level of provision.

For a weekday fixture we thought it was very good value and we had a good time. Only managed 2nd, 3rd and 4th from three bets though!

It was nice to visit Redcar again ( the first time in 25 years!)
As far as I could remember, not a lot had changed, which to be fair was nice.
It’s still a traditional northern racecourse, ousing character.
The viewing is excellent, and the layout is spacious.
Definitely worth a visit, especially when you’re holidaying up there!

Easy to access all areas from the main road, clearly laid out and modernised. Friendly staff and lots of seating in the grandstand area. Good selection of draft and bottled beers. Clean toilets. We had a good day out.

Very poor . No concessions for pensioners , no cash machine,bars and cafes inside shut or no facility to sit inside. Why covid restrictions have been lifted. Hope the rain keeps off. Don’t deserve to get a crowd way people are treated

I hadn’t visited Redcar since 1998 when I had a horse running ( best forgotten!)
It was nice to return 23 years on, and to be fair not a lot has changed.
A well laid out racecourse, with good viewing and adequate amenities.
Getting in and out was easy as well, unlike many racecourses in the UK

First time at this racecourse. Enjoyed ourselves and will be returning next time we are there Still Covid restrictions in place. Staff we interacted with were very polite. Really like the course. We did not buy food but I have never seen so many people queue for food at a racecourse before, so it must have been good. Really enjoyed our day, would recommend
