Cheltenham Racecourse Enclosure Map

Club Enclosure

There's no better way to enjoy the day at Cheltenham than from the Club Enclosure, the premier enclosure at Cheltenham. It's an experience to remember with access to all public areas and spectacular views from the main grandstand, lawn or Winning Post. In addition to paddock viewing access you can enjoy the Hall of Fame, all the public areas of the Princess Royal Stand and The Shopping Village. 


A Club ticket gets you entry to the widest selection of food and drinks areas at Cheltenham, including all the Tattersalls Enclosure restaurants. Click here for more information. 


Our Shopping Village is a must visit for all with over 70 trade stands on offer, there should be something to take your fancy. 


Throughout racing, there's plenty of fun to be had, look out for live music in The Centaur and Guinness Village (available at The Festival and The November Meeting).


Tattersalls Enclosure

Get up close and personal with the runners and riders in the Parade Ring, then head off to enjoy the racing from the Grandstand's viewing steps and the area past the Winning Post. 


With a wide choice of bars and eateries, your tastes are sure to be catered for. 


The options available for Tattersalls ticket holders are vast, from the hearty snacks at the North Entrance and Pre-Parade ring like Pizza in the Park to pub grub at The Guinness Village (available at The Festival).


Available at The Festival, Tattersall ticket holders have access to The Shopping Village. It is a must visit for all with over 70 trade stands on offer, there should be something to take your fancy.

Best Mate Enclosure

This is the most affordable way to enjoy what racing at Cheltenham has to offer and is tremendous value for money. 


The enclosure is positioned opposite the main Grandstand, providing an excellent view of the racing and 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 and keep an eye on the pennies. Please note, with this enclosure you have no access to the Final Flight (available at The Festival), Pre-Parade and Parde Ring, and Shopping Village. 


The Best Mate Grandstand is a modern, bright and comfortable facility, with refreshments and entertainment, as well as a variety of food choices.


With a Best Mate ticket, you may only enter the racecourse through the Best Mate gates located at the South of the site.


During The Festival, Party in the Pavilion acts as the enclosure's own live music venue with DJs and bands throughout the week.
