For these reasons, the number of guests is limited and early booking is advisable. The Dress Code for the Premier Suite is smart attire, and no Jeans, Sportswear or Trainers are to be worn. Gentlemen must wear a Jacket and Tie. It is important to note that this dress code also applies to children.


The County Enclosure at Doncaster Racecourse provides modern and comfortable facilities across three floors of the Lazarus Stand, and offers a host of bars and restaurants.

Smart attire is expected of all guests (including children) attending the County Enclosure. Gentleman must wear a collared shirt, whilst Jeans, Sportswear or Trainers are not permitted.

The seated Food Court provides the perfect menu for food on the go. It should be noted that the enclosure is both spacious and modern, and includes an al-fresco seated terrace overlooking the course, Saddling Boxes, Parade Ring and Winner's Enclosure. Guests will also have direct access to the betting ring and plenty of uncrowded space outside when cheering on their punt. There is no dress code for this enclosure.


The Family Enclosure is particularly easy going, and is perfect for a family day out at Doncaster Racecourse. Enjoy a picnic together or perhaps head to the Silver Patriarch Bar whilst your children delve into the onsite entertainment. And for those feeling lucky - a Tote betting facility, on course bookmakers and an ATM are also available nearby. There is no dress code for this enclosure.
