I had a great day at Ascot on Perth Cup day. The facilities for the public are excellent, food options very good and diverse, and I’ve always enjoyed the plenty of room available at Ascot for the public to view the horses and finish line....More

Visited the track with some friends on a Wednesday. It was quiet although Saturdays are busier there was still a crowd of people around. There is plenty of seating and bars and food available at the course. Would recommend for a good day out.

We attended on Melbourne Cup day. The standard of the fields was poor for such a day. Facilities for the large numbers weren’t adequate, especially for the large quantities of alcohol quaffed on a very hot day. Before we left (early) there were any number...More
