York Racecourse has a range of tickets that allow access to each of the different stands and other areas. The County Stand tickets allow you access to this premier enclosure. It also includes entry to the Grandstand, Paddock and Course Enclosure. These are great tickets that allow you to mingle in the champagne area and really soak up everything that the races have to offer.
The Grandstand tickets give you access to the paddock and is great being able to get close to the action trackside. There are plenty of quality food on the go options and a multiple bars.
Finally, the course enclosure provides a grassy area that is great for picnics with the family. Children under the age of 18 are admitted for free to this area.
If you are going into the County Stand or Grandstand that are certain dress rules that apply. A jacket, collared shirt and tie are mandatory. However, if you have arrived without the correct attire, the racecourse helpfully hire these out on the day!
York Racecourse can be accessed via shuttlebus (number 197) from the railway station making it easy to get here from the city centre. Fares are just £3 return. For those wanting to walk it, allow about 30 minutes from the city centre.
