Cheltenham Festival Enclosures

Next year, crowds are set to return to the home of jump racing for the pinnacle of the jump racing calendar; the Cheltenham Festival. Over four days in March, owners, trainers and jockeys will contest for some of the biggest prizes in jump racing and there is no where else you'll want to be.

When making a booking for next years Festival, we have three enclosures available. Each enclosure offers racegoers a unique experience. The type of ticket you buy will grant you access to different enclosures and stands. Club and Tattersalls will give you a grandstand view of all the action on the course, while Best Mate will give you a head-on view down the home straight.

All experiences include Best Mate as standard, with the option to upgrade to Tattersalls and Club enclosures. Here's some more information to help you make the choice!

Best Mate Enclosure

Cheltenham’s Best Mate enclosure is situated directly opposite the main grandstand and provides excellent views of the racing, top-class betting facilities, bars and a variety of food choices. Arguably the best of its type at any British racecourse, it's ideal for the novice racegoers who are eager to enjoy the atmosphere while keeping an eye on the pennies.

Party in the Pavilion acts as the enclosure's own live music venue with DJs and bands playing throughout the week. The enclosure is a popular choice for those keen to focus on the racing action with a head-on view down the home straight, you won't miss who is first past the post!

This is the most affordable way to enjoy what racing at Cheltenham has to offer and is tremendous value for money to experience The Festival in a special way.
