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.

Guests will also gain viewing access to the Saddling Boxes, Parade Ring and Winner's Enclosure, as well as entry to the Hallam FM Champagne Lawn, home to the The Old Weighing Room Restaurant and Champagne Bar. 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.
