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 dress code requirements, 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.

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!

PREMIER ENCLOSURE & 1875 LOUNGE

Should you be considering fancy dress, this is permitted in the Grandstand Enclosure only, and should not be offensive. If you are planning to wear fancy dress, please email or call us in advance, in order to avoid disappointment on the day.

 

In the event of one or all or your party being refused admission, no refund will be offered.
