About the County Concourse

The County Concourse is one of our more premium enclosures in the general admission areas. This enclosure forms part of our iconic panoramic grandstand which is home to our exclusive private boxes.

Dress code

Gentlemen are required to wear a well-tailored suit or a blazer with smart trousers, together with a shirt, collar and tie. Ladies are required to wear smart dress. Denim jeans of any colour, trainers, shorts, sportswear and fancy dress will not be permitted.

Bringing your own car

On race days, all customer car parking is on a designated area of the Open Course. Car parking can be purchased in advance via our website when booking your tickets, or on the day by cash or card. On arrival, stewards will direct you from the road outside the racecourse, right up until you park your car in its space. Customers are politely asked not to leave their cars on-site overnight and are reminded that all property and valuables are left at the owner’s risk.

Access

County Concourse ticket holders may enter the Open Course, Dee Stand, Tattersalls Enclosure, County Concourse, County Champagne Bar and Paddock. The Paddock is the heart of the racecourse where the Parade Ring is located. Here you can see the horses parade before each race, you can see the winning horse return after each race and watch the presentation ceremony in person each time. County Concourse also gives its ticketholders a wide variety of choice when it comes to where to spend the day. There are a large number of bars on both sides of the track which ticketholders can access, including on the Pavilion Lawn. The Pavilion Lawn is a lively part of the racecourse with track-side seating, pop-up bars, specialist food units and a resident DJ.
