About the Tattersalls Enclosure

The Tattersalls Enclosure is located between the Dee Stand and County Concourse. Offering access to both sides of the track (including the Parade Ring in the Paddock), Tattersalls is a firm favourite with racegoers.

Dress code

For gentlemen a collar is required, either polo shirt or collared shirt. Smart (not ripped) jeans, trousers or chinos are permitted. Ladies are required to wear smart dress. We encourage smart dress code in all enclosures, so feel free to dress up and enjoy the occasion. Please note that shorts, trainers, tracksuits, t-shirts, sportswear and fancy dress are not permitted in this enclosure.

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.


Tattersalls Enclosure ticket holders may enter the Open Course, Dee Stand, Tattersalls Enclosure 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. Tattersalls Enclosure 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.


No form of furniture i.e. chairs, gazebo’s etc. are permitted in the Tattersalls Enclosure.


There is limited standing cover in the Tattersalls Enclosure. Racegoers are entitled to bring an umbrella with them into the Tattersalls Enclosure for personal cover.


There is no seating in the Tattersalls Enclosure itself, but there is a wide variety of seating in the Paddock and Pavilion Lawn on the inside of the track which ticketholders can access.


Access gates are located on the Roman walls. These gates require racegoers to walk down a number of steps on historic staircases. If you have mobility issues, we can provide alternative routes on flat surfaces through the County Concourse. If you need to use the alternative route, please visit the Accessibility Hub in the Holiday Inn Car Park on arrival where trained stewards will assist you.

The Tattersalls Enclosure itself is on a flat concrete surface with a slope.

There is an accessible viewing platform in the Dee Stand (which Tattersalls Enclosure ticketholders can access).
