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.

    Treated to Sunday at the BTCC by my children as a retirement gift, with seats in the Hollywood Stand. Full day of racing which never stopped, and some really exciting racing. Well organised, and good information and signage, although sometimes you were left a little high and dry when you were following signs which were not consistent. Good level of amenities, shops etc, and I enjoyed walking through the pit area, seeing the cars and drivers up close. Very good commentry. Unfortunatley however, the stand had not been cleaned properly from the day before, and some waste food had been left, which was a great attraction for the wasps! This did not spoil our day though and we really enjoyed the racing!

    One piece of advice though, exiting the car park was a complete shambles, and took well over an hour. Some orgainisation and additional stewarding would have been a great benefit, and this will probably mean that I would not choose to attend an event in the future.

    My husband and I visited the museum and it was definitely worth it. I’m into old war vehicles (tanks etc) and my husband is into Formula 1. It was great seeing how F1 cars have changed over the years and quite nostalgic seeing the actual cars that the greats like Ayrton Senna and Jody Scheckter have driven.

    Had some time to spare before a flight next door at East Midlands Airport. The museum was half price as it is closing down for family reasons but what a fabulous collection of racing cars. Plenty to see and read about well set out in a series of long rooms.
    There was also the bonus of some military vehicles which had also been beautifully restored.

    I`ve driven past this gallery many times but was encouraged to visit by an artist friend. What a delightful experience. We pulled into the small car park and were welcomed inside. We spent ages enjoying the fascinating selection of art work including paintings and sculpture over two floors in this compact but attractive setting. Luke left us to browse but he knew the right moment to offer coffee and a chat about the various artists. Because of this conversation i bought a wonderful print of his own work, which is a great reminder of a special day, when the weather and the sky over the beautiful sculpture garden were awesome, and i discovered a new favorite artist.

    Me and my daughter ate our picnic on the grass of the church. It's truly breath taking. It looks like it is very well taken care of as the grass was cut and there wasn't any rubbish around. But there isn't any bins.

    I’ve done the premier on track days twice before at the RH race school and it was brilliant. Well prepared bikes, professionally ran and first class instruction. As I’m a fairly experienced rider I took my son in law this time and did the premier plus course with one to one instruction. It was awesome- lots of track time and feedback. It’s a real shame it’s closing at the end of the end of the 2020 season. Highly recommend though.
