  • We love the racecourse! It’s always great fun on a race day! My dog loves his walks around the track and even goes for a sneaky swim in the lake! They host some excellent events for the community which are always fun and entertaining for the whole family!
  • Went to the Christmas Wonderland, it was good, managed to fill in the time. The circus in not to be missed. Be aware that there are a lot of "carnival" rides and concessions and these cost a lot extra. What they have to do with Christmas i don't know. Take plenty of cash.
