Get your heart racing at Sandown Park Racecourse, Esher. Situated in the picturesque Surrey countryside, yet just 30 minutes from Central London, Sandown Park Racecourse is the versatile venue offering the best of both worlds. Whether you’re in the midst of the action in our Grandstand and Premier enclosures, or receiving some VIP hospitality treatment in our boxes and restaurant- Sandown Park’s race days are an ever-exciting pastime. Watching the Action. Sandown Park's spacious, modern Grandstand has been designed to get you as close to the racing champions as possible, whilst taking in the stunning Surrey scenery. Don’t forget to take a trip down to the Parade Ring to have look at the thoroughbreds and choose your favourite to win before cheering them on with the crowds. The Premier Enclosure. Sandown Park’s Premier Enclosure enjoys unparalleled views of the finish line, and access to a wider range of catering facilities including the Moet and Chandon Bar. Dress code for the racecourse's Premier Enclosure is smart casual. Collared shirts on men (including polo shirts and polo necked jumpers) are preferred and jeans are acceptable as long as they're not torn. Sandown Park doesn't allow trainers, non-tailored shorts, vests, rugby or football tops in its first class enclosure.

Beautiful racecouse situated in the wonderful village of Esher on the outskirts of London. If you want a good day out,even if you're not into racing,you could do a lot worse than Sandown. Give it a try

My company organised a day at the races for us and Sandown is perfect for a more laid back race day. This didn’t have the natural buzz that Ascot has, but I found it more enjoyable as it was a lot more chilled. Getting drinks...More

Enjoyed an mid week evening at the races with a client. Very enjoyable and no long queues which was great. Plenty of options in good and bad weather. Food a little limited but the usual racecourse offering. Would go again.

Going to the races should be a great occasion. Going when you are invited to be in hospitality should be even better. But when you find yourself envying what the punters are eating off the burger van on the stands from your windowed seat -...More
