Royal Windsor racecourse family fun days.

Hi Just thought I would let you all know about a very different family day out we had recently at Royal Windsor racecourse. We attended one of their family Fun day on the IMG_1334.JPGlast may bank holiday.

They have another day coming up next bank holiday – It might appeal to some?  If so take a look at their website as they have 5 Family fun days though out the year.IMG_1340.JPG

We are not normally horse racing types, however we fancied doing something completely different and out of our comfort zone as a family. Having seen an advert we thought we’d give it a go! Adult tickets are £14 each if pre-booked and Kids go free (so if your a large family or single parent this could be a fairly cheap day out), all entertainment is free on the day. Apart from watching the horse racing which started at 2pm, on this occasion this included a free funfair that opened at 12pm (the kids loved the fact there was no ‘No, its to expensive’) and they were free to go on what they wished. Not a huge funfair but large enough to feel like you have got something for your money. Plus there was a bouncy castle inflatable slide and assault course. Free face painting and pony rides which the boys loved. The pony rides were the highlight for the boys.IMG_1317

In all it was a good value day out as we all went on several rides and had fun as a family. We enjoyed watching the racing despite not taking part in the betting apart from one small bet which we loss (to complicated for us!). I don’t think we loved it that much that it would be something that we will take up but it did give us a different fun family day out and experience for the boys.

The race course has all the usual things, picnic area, food places, etc. Plus you don’t have to dress fancy on family days – normal wear is fine. The staff were not overly helpful or knowledgeable on the day so be prepared to figure out what is happening on your own and where things are. Funfair is to the left of entrance and there are more activities in the middle. Basic ticket allows you access to these and picnic area. You will need to upgrade (£2 per person) for other enclosures and access to pre/ after race horse viewing and more eating options. We personally took a picnic though their were plenty of places to get food/drink from vans at the more expensive end or posher stands/sit down options in the club enclosure. We also chose to park in the free car park as opposed to the chargeable one (£10 plus). In all honesty I would say save your money and park in the free car park it is not that much further to walk if your able, five minutes if that. It was more than fine for both our boys to walk.
