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 the Grandstand & Paddock as well as Course Enclosure.
