“race day visit, will not be back”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

Afternoon at races, paid normal grandstand entrance fee £16, no value for money, basic facilities and overall poor view, was a big screen but I go to watch live not a tv. You can pay more £20 and get better facilities, in which case the price differential is wrong only £4 difference. If you are going for hospitality that looks good, nice looking glass fronted restaurant with view over whole course.I suppose you pay for what get, so price structure is wrong, £10 to go in centre of course and basically stand in a field, price too high. There are many better racecourses I have visited

“Good Location for Caravanning but nothing more”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

The positive thing about using the Racecourse caravanning facilitates is its location, an easy walk into centre of Stratford and the Theatre. Great walks in the immediate area, and it is dog friendly.

The facilities however are poor not good loos or showers. I have no idea why they don't upgrade them to fit the area to be honest, but this is truly a let down of what could be a positive place to stay it has put us off returning to this particular Stratford site.

“Handy camp site”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

well placed for trips into Stratford, easy by bus and a short nice walk. Showers let the site down 50p, often cold and not much pressure.

“Horses for Courses!”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Always one of our favourite racecourses and worth staying the extra couple of nights in the area to soak up the sights of Stratford upon Avon!
Staff at the racecourse are always friendly and welcoming; the atmosphere is great with the paddock situated between the grandstand and the Course; and there are usually plenty of runners. Worth checking whether the racecourse giant screen will be used before you go as it's quite hard to follow the horses when they go onto the back straight.
Plenty of catering outlets and bars, and usually several stalls selling outdoor clothing and/or jewellery items. The racecourse sometimes also does tours of the weighing room and 'behind the scenes' visits which passes the time before the racing begins.
