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.

Came here on Saturday £22.50 for the premium suite. Even thou it was busy you had a good view of racecourse with plenty of outlets for food and drinks. 15 minutes walk to grandstand from Esher station, have been here a few times and it's one of the better racecourses.

I hadn't seen a hurdle race even I am very keen racegoer. We travelled from London and didn't take very long by train. We actually arrived on the other side of race track the you could walk thru the race course in between the races. How interesting! The admission fee was a bit expensive for my standard but still acceptable.... More

Had a great day yesterday at the races. Staff friendly. Beer a tad expensive but I suppose you expect that. We ate at the macaroni cheese stall on the race track side, food was really nice and very reasonable. Good view of the track

Had a great day here with a group of work colleagues. We had tickets for the Premier Enclosure which allowed us to get right up to the finishing post! There was a great selection of places to get food at a range of prices, several bars and coffee places, a champagne bar and a separate wine bar. There were a... More

Went to afternoon race event. Great fun and worth doing providing you don't loose too much money. Plenty of eating venues for all tastes. Main restaurant good but expensive. Paddock arena very accessable and then a short walk to the course. Go once and enjoy the ambiance

Great days racing somewhat let down by some of the service. In particular the bar staff mainly appear to be students who lack experience. Food in the food hall was fine, quick and reasonably priced.

What a great day out with the family including 22month old grandson. He loved the horses both live and on the TV. Great atmopsphere and everyone very friendly, not at all snobby. Such good fun even though we didn't win much. Lots of different bars and food outlets for all tastes.
