We used the upstairs bar for a conference for a day and it was a central location for everyone travelling from various points in scotland. The room was good with good AV setup and the food and refreshments were excellent.

Beautiful course with really good facilities that cater for all. The way that the jockeys are piped into the parade ring is brilliant to hear.

Great day had at Perth Races. Very expensive for drink so just as well we won on a few races! Was quite surprised at lack of bars/food areas available considering this was the second last day of the season.

We go every year to the glorious finale and the sun nearly always shines. Really great day out with everyone out to have a good day. Well respected trainers and jockeys all competing.

Fantastic day out. Only criticism would be not enough outdoor seats and tables although know this could not be accommodated for everyone due to being extremely busy. Will we return ..... Yes, fantastic fun day

We had a horse running on the penultimate day of the last meeting of the 2016 season. It might be a smaller track than others, but you will struggle to find a friendlier one. A good day out.

This was our first visit to Perth and this lovely racecourse. We pre booked out tickets, which were easily collected from the course entrance. The facilities are excellent, with lots of places to eat and drink. It is a friendly place, has lots of seating and good views. We also had the added bonus of the farmers market. We took... More

Very nice. First time i had visited. Not too big so easy to walk round. Plenty places for food and drink. Scampi and chips best I have had. Buses run from town centre to the course. Ideal. Hope to visit again.

I go here often and always enjoy my day out. I find it a very friendly relaxed kind of place and always feel part of the special atmosphere

I suppose it was our own fault being first timers here, and maybe we should have headed for the Grandstand area, but we ended up in the so called picnic area or maybe better described as the drunken rabble section. The behaviour of quite a few of the folk there was extremely disappointing especially as there were a lot of... More
