Travel Information

How to find us

Directions

BY RAIL

Esher Rail Station is only a 25 minute train journey from London Waterloo. Whilst there is a taxi rank and a minibus on racedays, Sandown Park’s main entrance is only a 10 minute flat walk from the station. The racecourse can be easily reached by turning left out of the station onto Station Road and then right at the T- junction joining the A307 Portsmouth Road, where the entrance is on the right hand side.

BY AIR

London airports Heathrow and Gatwick are approximately 12 and 25 miles away by road respectively.

Visitors wishing to enquire about using Sandown Park's helipad should contact the racecourse in advance on 01372 46 43 48.

Parking

BY ROAD

If travelling from London, take the A3 and follow the brown venue signs to Sandown Park, before exiting onto the A307 and following brown venue signs. Alternatively, from the M25, exit at Junction 10 and follow the A3 towards London before exiting onto the A307 and following the brown venue signs.

Those using a Sat Nav are advised to enter 'Portsmouth Road' rather than the Sandown Park postcode. This will bring guests to the main car park just off the A307 (Esher High Street), which is directly in front of the main entrance.

PARKING

Parking in the centre of the racecourse can be reached from the More Lane entrance and is both free and plentiful. Alternatively, it is possible to park in the main car park off the Portsmouth Road for £6.

Racecourse Information

The History

Located in Esher, Surrey, Sandown Park is one of 15 racecourses in the UK owned and run by Jockey Club Racecourses. Opened in 1875, the track was the first purpose-built racecourse with enclosures, designed to be a leisure destination. Sandown Park’s feature race every year is the Eclipse Stakes, a 1 mile 2 furlongs Group 1 race. This race takes place on the Sandown Coral Eclipse Day in July. In 2015, Derby winning horse Golden Horn won the race very comfortably.

Sandown stages top quality racing under both flat and national hunt rules. The main flat circuit is run right handed over an oval course measuring one mile five furlongs in circumference. The run in is four furlongs in length, and is a consistent uphill climb. The sprint course is a diagonal off the long course, and climbs throughout its five furlong length. Sandown suits gallopers who are blessed with a combination of pace and stamina.

The steeplechase course is also run right handed, but is slightly larger in circumference, being around one mile five and a half furlongs in circuit length. On the steeplechase course, the home straight is an uphill climb throughout its entire length. Conversely, there is a descent from the turn out off the home straight, which continues until the horses enter the back straight. The steeplechase course has eleven testing fences, which occur in the following circuit pattern: three plain fences, the first open ditch, six more plain fences, and a double width open ditch. On the final circuit, this last ditch fence is replaced by an adjacent plain fence, and then there is a run in to the winning post.
