I visited Southwell for the first time today and was extremely impressed. The facilities are more than adequate, everything is incredibly well positioned (stables, pre-parde, paddock, weighing room, all a stones throw for the grandstand), and the surroundings are much prettier than I imagined. The whole place appears well run and their is a real racing atmosphere there, unlike, I have to say, at Wolverhampton.
I am sorry I left Southwell until the 47th racecourse to visit. 12 to go!
Yes i thought Southwell was very good, did you go in the way that takes you over the railway line?? Ha nearly got run over by one in car when went but other than that thought the facilities etc were very good. Would definitely go again
anybody else miss frankies bar at lingfield ? they did great little polystyrene cups of soup with a bread roll and butter for Â£1.20 – perfect for in between the races and parade rings – little things like this make the day better imo
i emailed them about this quite strongly and i got a reply telling me to use the new canteen style shoite under the stand with shoite soup, extortionate prices, queues a mile long and confused/bored looking workers some of whom speak english apparently
