WHAT TO WEAR TO THE RACES

 

Racing doesn't happen every day, so why not treat your visit as a special occasion? We encourage smart dress in our Premier and Hospitality Enclosures but our Grandstand Enclosure has a more relaxed approach.

 

grandstand enclosure

 

There is a relaxed dress code, but many opt to dress for the occasion. Smart shorts, smart denim jeans and trainers are acceptable. Denim must not be ripped, and football shirts and vests are not permitted.

 

Should you be considering fancy dress, this is permitted in this Enclosure only, and should not be offensive. If you are planning to wear fancy dress and you aren't sure it is suitable, please call us in advance in order to avoid disappointment on the day.

 

Premier Enclosure & 1875 Lounge

 

Guests are required to follow our smart casual guidelines, and encouraged to dress for a special occasion. Men are advised to wear collared shirts, polo shirts or polo necked jumpers. Smart trousers, chinos and smart jeans are accepted. Hats and fascinators are welcome but not essential. Please note shorts, sports trainers, sportswear and flip flops are not permitted.

 

restaurants & private boxes

 

If you're joining us as a guest in a Private Box or one of our restaurants, the Premier Enclosure dress code of smart casual is required. If you have any specific requirements, please get in touch.

 

Summer racing style

 

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 fascinators 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.

 

Jump racing style

 

During the colder months of the year we enjoy the return of Jump racing to Sandown Park Racecourse. Different to our summer fixtures, the style is smart while being comfortable and warm.

 

A tweed jacket or blazer is a popular choice for winter - while looking stylish and on trend, they're also normally heavy-weight, perfect for keeping the cold off. While hats aren't necessary, they're great for when it's cold and wet!

Music and racing

 

For our music nights we operate as one enclosure with a relaxed dress code. Shorts and casual shoes are permitted across the racecourse. Please note that Hospitality guests at these events are required to adhere to our standard smart casual guidelines, following the Premier Enclosure dress code below.
