    Perfect day!

    Thank you to all the staff at Leicester Racecourse for making our day!
    During the planning stages, Tracey and the events team were there to guide us along the way, and provide us with their wealth of knowledge in all things wedding in Leicester. On the day, Tracey and her team made sure that everything went smoothly and just how we wanted it to be........just perfect!
    The food & drink were absolutely awesome! We got so many compliments regarding the catering, venue and the day in general. It was great to feel confident that our guests felt well looked after, and we can't thank the team enough for this.
    We hired the Nelson Suite for our day, and the expanse of windows and access to the Grandstand and grounds provided great views over the course for our guests. The grounds are beautifully maintained and provided a beautiful backdrop to the day and of course our photos!
    There's also a little play area which kept the younger kids happily entertained, and their parents able to relax and enjoy the day too!
    I would definitely recommend the venue to Bride & Grooms to be!
