Venue Etiquette

What To Wear

The dress code in hospitality areas and the Premier Enclosure is smart casual. Sportswear, trainers and fancy dress are not permitted. Shirts must have a collar, a tie is not essential. Smart jeans and tailored shorts are acceptable.

There is no dress code in the Grandstand, or when One Enclosure is in operation. Fancy dress is allowed, providing it’s decent and would not cause offence to other guests.

There is no dress code for children in the enclosures or hospitality.

Many guests opt to dress smartly for the occasion, especially on feature racedays.
