Please note, for those purchasing tickets on the day, we will be taking card payments only. 

 

However, we do recommend that tickets are purchased in advance. Pre-booked tickets reduce the time taken to enter the racecourse on the day.

Once you have purchased your tickets, they will be emailed to you. Please note there may be a slight delay while your booking is processed.

 

Your ticket is designed to be either printed at home on your home printer and brought with you on the day or presented on arrival on your mobile phone from your email confirmation. You may also opt for your ticket to be sent to you via The Jockey Club app.

  

Please note that tickets are not currently being made available via our postal service.
