Information about the County Long Room enclosure

The County Long Room is located within the main grandstand at the racecourse. Once at the top of the stairs, you will find The Walls Bar to your left-hand side and the County Long Room to your right. The Walls Bar is part of the facilities open to County Long Room badge holders and provides a space away from the main County Long Room from which to enjoy a beverage before you take your seats for the first race.

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 Long Room ticket holders may enter the Open Course, Dee Stand, Tattersalls Enclosure, County Concourse, County Champagne Bar, County Long Room and Paddock.
