No walk-up tickets will be available and all tickets must be purchased in advance of the raceday. This is to comply with Government guidance and test and trace regulations which remain an important part of the national roadmap
to recovery.

Once you have purchased your tickets, they will not be sent until contact information for all attendees on your booking has been provided and our Covid Code of Conduct and terms of entry have been accepted.

Please note there may be a slight delay in receiving your tickets.


  • Your ticket

Your ticket is designed to either:

1) print at home on your home printer, or

2) be displayed on your mobile phone from your email confirmation.


With your ticket, please also bring an official form of ID which will be checked against the details on your ticket.


Please note, tickets will only be sent to you electronically via email, and for the current time will not be available via our postal service or the app. 

We’re confident that our events will go ahead as planned, but in the unfortunate event of cancellation or if our guest capacities are restricted, all affected ticket purchases will be fully refunded under our money-back guarantee.

Should Government guidelines change and restrictions on travel from specific areas or postcodes be reintroduced, affected tickets would be cancelled and refunds arranged.


Should total attendances be restricted beyond the capacities we’ve sold to, we would refund purchasers on a ‘last-in, first-out’ basis for each enclosure. This means that those who purchased earliest have the greatest chance of being able to attend.

As you may be aware, from Wednesday 15th December, the Government has announced new regulations impacting large-scale events.


If the fixture you are attending is expected to have an attendance of more than 4,000 people, we require you to comply with these new regulations below.


Please check the event page for the fixture you are attending to see if this is affected, view fixture pages here.


As part of our efforts to make the raceday experience as safe as possible, spectators over the age of 18 - unless exempt - will be required to hold a valid NHS COVID Pass or be in possession of valid communication indicating exception or Negative Lateral Flow / PCR test to enter our Racecourses providing proof of 1 of the following:


  • Be double vaccinated with a vaccine used in the UK (and any booster when offered)
  • Negative Lateral Flow / PCR test within 48 hours of the event or
  • Natural immunity shown by a positive PCR test result for COVID-19 within 180 days of the date of the positive test and following completion of the self-isolation period. 


Checks will be in operation at the racecourse with dedicated stewards checking spectators and staff prior to entry. More information

If you intend to visit our racecourses from outside England, please check and adhere to England’s Government guidance and your own Government’s travel restrictions, rules and guidelines.


Our current annual badge holders are a high priority group for the return of spectators to our racecourses and we’re expecting to be able to welcome you. Please visit your racecourse Membership pages for more information.

Yes, if you’re in the fortunate position of having transferred a ticket into 2021 you are in our priority group of spectators. The enclosures in use on the day and the experience you can expect may be different from when you bought your ticket so our teams will be in touch soon to give you more information and to ask you to reconfirm your attendance.

We are selling tickets based on our best understanding of permitted capacities. If things change and we can only permit a reduced number to attend we would ‘roll back’ admissions in reverse order, so those who purchased their ticket last would be the first in that enclosure to have their ticket cancelled and fully refunded. We would give you as much notice as we could if your ticket was going to be affected.

Attendee numbers will vary by racecourse and by fixture. They will always comply with the latest Government guidance and be led by our plans to ensure we can manage social distancing and maintain the safety of all our racegoers, staff and participants.

We offer complimentary admission to one accompanying personal assistant in circumstances where a person with a disability would otherwise be at a substantial disadvantage without the personal assistant. As these fixtures are running on reduced capacity and may sell out, it is essential that you telephone us on the day you make your ticket purchase if you wish to request a personal assistant ticket.

All RCA-issued accreditation, including badge schemes, metal badges and media lanyards, remains suspended until further notice. This is due to the requirement for all attendance to be pre-booked and the strict capacity limits imposed. The RCA will confirm when accreditation schemes will re-commence.

There are no complimentary or discounted tickets available at this time because of the capacity restrictions.  For the avoidance of any confusion, this includes ROA, RCA, Racegoers Club, Racing UK members, Racepass 18-24 etc. Any previously promoted racecourse reciprocal, community or charity issued tickets will not be valid. 


Only those who have had their admission to the fixture confirmed since since 22 February 2021, have provided their contact details and agreed to the Spectator Code of Conduct will be able to enter the racecourse.

Please note children’s tickets are subject to availability and may be limited at high demand fixtures.

Children under the age of 18 are permitted to visit for free when attending with an adult. However, children still require a ticket, as we will require contact details and consent to Code of Conduct for each individual before racecourse entry.

Child tickets can be added to your basket for free when purchasing an adult ticket, and contact details must be completed before they can access the racecourse.

Spectators are welcome to travel to and from the raceday by any form of transport, although private transport is preferred given the reduced risk of Covid-19 transmission. Ample parking is available at all our racecourses.

Some of our racedays and enclosures will have a specific dress code and you should check the webpages relating to the event you’re attending for more information. As our events are predominantly outdoor, for all racedays please check the forecast before leaving home and plan to wear warm or waterproof clothing as required.

In line with UK Health Security Agency guidance, Racing continues to recommend the use of Covid-19 mitigations to keep racegoers safe.


We recommend wearing face coverings in enclosed and crowded areas – there will be additional facemasks available on the entrance to the racecourse but we recommend you bring your own


Even if you do not intend to wear a face covering we do ask that you bring one with you, in the event that you feel ill during your visit and need to speak with a member of our team.

If you fall ill on race day, please put on your face covering and approach the nearest steward remaining at a safe distance and let them know. A qualified First Aider will then be called to attend to you and appropriate care will be provided. On race day we will have a dedicated First Aid area and Covid-19 Isolation room

Yes. The Tote and bookmakers will be present. For betting facilities only, contactless is recommended, but cash payment will still be an option.

Digital racecards will be available to download from our website and on the Jockey Club App

Alcohol may be purchased without an accompanying meal but must be consumed whilst seated.

We will be operating cashless sales throughout our food and drink outlets, including concessions.


For betting facilities cash payment will still be accepted, but contactless payments are recommended.

We ask you do not bring any food or drink on to the course. This includes no alcohol or picnics.




We offer a range of facilities to assist racegoers in maintaining hygiene levels, including hand sanitation stations, regular sanitation of touch points and ensuring indoor areas are well ventilated. As always the safety of all our racegoers, employees and participants remains our number one priority.


Social distancing will be supported by Racecourse stewards on the day.


Our teams have all undertaken Covid training and our racecourses have been awarded the Visit Britain ‘Good to Go’ accreditation.


Under the current plans, we ask you read our Code of Conduct, which all attendees must agree to.

We have introduced numerous precautions on-site to assist in making your day as safe as possible. Most precautions rely on you and fellow racegoers acting responsibly in upholding them.


We have produced a Spectators Code of Conduct to help you plan to enjoy the day safely and responsibly.

Please click here for full details.


We expect that all attendees will want to support the safe return of racing in front of crowds and will behave responsibly.


For the safety of everyone on the racecourse we reserve the right to remove anyone from the site who breaches the Code of Conduct or behaves in a way which could compromise the safe running of the event.

Normally our tickets are non-refundable, however due the current circumstances if you are unable to attend because of the Government restrictions or Covid-19 related symptoms we will offer you a refund. Alternatively, you can transfer your ticket to a future meeting.


Please remember to follow the latest Government restrictions in place at the time

Tickets cannot be transferred to another person.  All attendees will be asked for their contact information ahead of the raceday and may be asked to show photo ID to gain entry to the racecourse. 


For everyone’s safety we must know exactly who is attending our raceday and if we believe a ticket has been sold or passed on that ticket holder will not be allowed to enter.
