Enclosures

Where to be for the best views

COUNTY STAND

The County Stand is the premier enclosure at York. Guests will gain access to the award winning Ebor Stand, Listed Gimcrack Stand and Champagne Terrace. A selection of bars and viewing areas can be found on the ground and fifth floor, whilst the ground floor boasts the delightful Ebor Bistro - these are all open to County Stand Badgeholders.

Guests will receive easy access to both the Parade Ring and Winner's Enclosure, and will also be able to see the triumphant horses first hand, with unsurpassed views from the Winning Post.

Admission includes a complimentary racecard, which offers much more than the information on the runners & riders. It is also important to note that admission to the County Stand also allows guests access to the Grandstand & Paddock as well as the Course Enclosure.

GRANDSTAND & PADDOCK STAND

The largest enclosure at York, guests admitting into the Grandstand & Paddock can come casually dressed. The area offers a host of bars found in the Knavesmire Stand, many with breathtaking views across the track and seated viewing areas. The Bustardthorpe Lawns also provide fantastic trackside viewing, and is popular for spectators wishing to enjoy York’s good food to go.

Access to both the main betting ring and the parade ring are easily accessible from the front of the stands.

Dress Codes

What to wear

As a world class racecourse, York places utmost importance in dressing in a suitable manner. Gentleman must wear a jacket, collared shirt and tie in the County Stand, and although smart trousers and formal shoes are recommended to complete the look, there is no formal restriction on wearing jeans and trainers. Similarly, if gentlemen believe the weather warrants shorts then there is no formal restriction to them being worn. Ladies are required to wear a dress, whilst hats are optional.

The Grandstand & Paddock and Course Enclosure requires a more relaxed dress code. Shorts and t-shirts are often worn by racegoers enjoying the sun, and the only real restrictions fall under the common sense category - bare chests and slogan t-shirts are unacceptable.
