Where to be for the best views
The Club Enclosure
Club badge holders get the best views of the course and can stand right at the winning post for the exciting finishes on the uphill straight for which the course is so renowned. Those within the Club Enclosure can also access the Champagne Bar and Dukes Restaurant. One hour before the first race a tipster will be on hand in Dukes Bar for all the betting advice you will need for the day. Club badge holders can also access the Grandstand Enclosure.
Within the Grandstand there is a family friendly restaurant, the Conservatory Bistro, good views over the track, and badge holders can access the Paddock Lawn facilities which include an open barbecue during the Super Six meetings. A children’s play area is open at all fixtures and the Grandstand Enclosure is perfect for a family day out at the races.
