Where to be for the best views

The Club Enclosure

The Club Enclosure (Day Members) offers the racegoer access to all the public areas with the best viewing, including the Champagne Bar and The Gallery Restaurant on the first floor of the Warwickshire Stand.


Tattersalls tickets provide access to all the ground floor areas, including Parade ring and Pre Parade ring viewing as well as use of the first floor Garrick Bar, which has superb balcony for watching the racing. With a Tattersalls ticket you are also able to use the Centre Course enclosure, (excellent for picnics and families). There is an excellent new Carvery restaurant available within the Chaser room, where a meal can be obtained from £10.00

Centre Course Enclosure

This enclosure comprises the centre of the racecourse and takes you really close to the action as well as allowing you to park your car for just £3.
The Centre Course enclosure is very popular for Barbecues, Open Air Picnics, and anyone bringing dogs (on a lead at all times please). There are free childrens' entertainments at all week-end race meetings in the summer months. Thus a family of two adults, and any number of children, can have access to the racing and entertainments for just £20 plus a £3 car park ticket. Centre course racegoers may cross the course for a set period between races for an excellent view of the horses in the Parade ring.

Racecourse Information

The History

Steeplechasing has taken place at Stratford Racecourse since 1755 and today it is proud to be in the top flight of Britain's smaller courses. The first in the country to form a Racecourse Entertainments Committee, the racecourse is host to around fourteen meetings each year. Stratford Racecourse is one of the country's leading small racecourses, with a reputation for excellent levels of prize-money. Racing takes place regularly between March and November, with many of the top jockeys riding here. The Summer racedays attract family groups who can picnic in the centre of the course, making use of free admission for under 18's along with the free children's entertainment on afternoon weekend meetings during holiday time.
