Enclosures and Dress Code

The Premier Enclosure

In Sandown Park's Premier Enclosure, you'll enjoy a fabulous view of the racing that is probably unequalled in the UK.

You can get up close to the horses on Sandown Park's unique horsewalk and the covered seating is directly opposite the winning post - you couldn't wish for a better position!

There are also a host of excellent bars and restaurants for when you're not glued to the racecourse action including The Brasserie, Green's Seafood & Champagne Bar, Chasers Bar and the Tingle Creek Restaurant.

In the Premier Enclosure, smart casual dress is required - defined as follows:

  • Gentlemen must wear collared shirts - polo shirts and polo-necked jumpers are permitted
  • Ladies should dress for a smart occasion
  • Smart jeans are allowed however they must not be ripped or torn

We ask that you kindly do not wear:

  • Beach flip flops and trainers (including sports, fashion and plimsolls)
  • Sportswear (including t-shirts)
  • Shorts (including tailored and sports)
  • Swimwear
  • Fancy Dress

Ladies, feel free to wear your hats and fascinators!

Please note during our live music nights the enclosures are open as one, and the Grandstand Enclosure dress code applies.

The Grandstand Enclosure

The Grandstand Enclosure enables you to check out your favourite horse at the Parade Ring, then move quickly back to the 'steppings', from which famously, you can see the entire course without obstruction.

The rear balcony overlooks the Parade Ring and links the bars and the seating areas. You can choose from a wide variety of restaurants and food outlets that cater for every taste and budget.

The dress code for the Grandstand Enclosure is informal and casual. Shorts are permitted for men and women.

Vests and bare tops are NOT permitted.


Please be aware that the Sandown Park dress code applies to children aged over 12 years.

Fancy Dress

Fancy dress is allowed at Sandown Park Racecourse on all days within the Grandstand Enclosure (fancy dress is not permitted within the Premier Enclosure at anytime).

Sandown Park Racecourse reserves the right to refuse entry to anyone deemed to be dressed inappropriately. If your party is considering wearing fancy dress, in order to avoid any disappointment on the day, we recommend that you call our Racecourse Information Team prior to the raceday on 01372 47 00 47.

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