a trackside treat
Please note that due to current requirements, guests are unable to bring their own food and drink on to the racecourse.
When we are able to welcome picnics again, our usual terms are:
The Picnic Enclosure is the perfect spot for soaking up the summer atmosphere, situated next to the track in the Grandstand with views of the racecourse and stands. If you're bringing along a picnic for the day, it must be consumed within this area.
- We encourage the use of picnic rugs but we do not allow guests to bring tables, chairs, gazebos or other items of furniture onto the racecourse. There are picnic benches within the Picnic Enclosure but as this area can become busy we recommend arriving early to avoid disappointment.
- Alcohol can only be brought in with a substantial picnic and it is limited to half a 750ml bottle of wine, Champagne or prosecco per person or four cans of beer, cider or pre-mixed aperitif. A substantial picnic is considered to include a sandwich or equivalent plus a snack per person, as a minimum. View the full Alcohol Policy here.
- Please note that barbecues are not permitted at Sandown Park, to ensure the safety of all guests on the racecourse.
