WHAT TO WEAR TO THE RACES

 

Racing doesn't happen every day, so why not treat your visit as a special occasion?

 

Although only some of our Enclosures hold a stitch dress code, racegoers at Sandown Park like to dress up for the occasion. We encourage smart dress in our Premier and Hospitality Enclosures but the Grandstand Enclosure has a more relaxed approach, so get some inspiration below and enjoy the occasion.

It's Summer racing!

 

Showcase your best and most colourful outfits. For ladies, many opt for dresses and skirts in the warmer weather, or jumpsuits are a great alternative. Hats and headpieces are optional, but make a fantastic accessory.


For men, a light jacket or blazer is a popular choice in case of chilly evenings, paired with smart shoes. View more tips below:
