During the early part of the year the racecourse holds evening 'brunch type' events where you can watch the racing from the elegance of their restaurant on tiered levels so all can see the action. Very expensive to get a table here during the Gold Cup weekend so a great opportunity to eat here. Food good, not brilliant but it's the whole package that makes it worthwhile and allows you to choose horses in races (not gambling) so you get involved - great fun.

Attended the World Cup and we were impressed with everything about the event and the racecourse. Beautifully designed, amazing views, impeccable service (we were in one of the lower level sections near the finish line). Also took a tour of the racecourse, the stands and the stables a few days later and continued to be impressed. Well worth the trip and highly recommend to anyone who wants a great racing experience. The Meydan Hotel adjoining is awesome as well.

This is one of the world's best racecourse developed under the guidance of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

The grandstand has to be seen to be believed - it is huge! If you think Ascot's is big, this is much bigger! I went on a public holiday to an 'everyday' meeting and the public areas were rammed, as it is free entry.
However, for a much more pleasant and refined experience, pay the 150dhms to go in the Parade Ring Bar/Restaurant, where you get space, air conditioning, alcohol and excellent food. Well worth the money.
