Getting around the Enclosures

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic we will be operating reduced facilities for the 2021 racing season. Please refer to the admission prices  page for further information.


You can’t fail to enjoy the action and excitement of a day at the races when you visit Redcar Racecourse. 

Both the Grandstand and Course Family Enclosure have trackside viewing - you can watch as the horses race past you on their way to the winning post.

Grandstand Enclosure

The Grandstand Enclosure has unrivalled access with the best views – there is no better place to watch the racing action from.

There are no barriers and no dress code so you can go where you like and dress how you want. The Grandstand Enclosure allows racegoers access to all of the main racecourse facilities, such as viewing the Parade Ring and Winners’ Enclosure, as well as offering excellent views of track from the tiered grandstand steppings.

With access to all Grandstand and Course Enclosure facilities you are able to enjoy the freedom to walk around the racecourse. 

Choose from a wide range of bars, restaurants and catering outlets - there is something to cover all tastes and budgets:

  • the Crow's Nest Restaraunt Package offers the ultimate dine and view package of three course meal and a fantastic view of the racing action
  • if you'd prefer a light bite why not visit the Voltigeur Restaurant
  • hot and cold snacks can be found in the Malton, Middleham, and Zetland Bars, which also offer full bar facilities.

The Grandstand Enclosure also offers a variety of betting mediums for racegoers, whether you prefer to walk through the betting ring, visit the Tote Betting Shop or have a flutter at one of the many Totepool windows.

**Picnics are not permitted in the Grandstand Enclosure**

Course Enclosure

Also known as the Family Enclosure.  The Course Enclosure is a great place to for a family day out and & offers value for money family entertainment.  Located in the center of the racecourse racegoers in the Course  Enclosure have a good view of the racing and kids can be kept entertained on the playground.  We have extensive space and picnic areas offering great value for all the family.

You're welcome to bring a picnic but racegoers are reminded that alcohol is limited to personal consumption only (i.e 4 cans or 1/2 bottle of wine per person, but no Spirits or glass bottles).  Portable / disposable BBQs and Gazebos are not permitted within the racecourse enclosures.  Please do not bring them with you as you will be refused entrance.

The Course Family Enclosure offers food and drink facilities including bar facilities and at each meeting there are a number of on-course bookmakers and Totepool betting facilities available. 

For the children there is a children's playground and on Premier Days additional attractions are provided to keep younger racegoers entertained throughout the day.

Big Screen & TVs

There's a big screen on all racedays so you'll never miss any of the racing action.

There are also plenty of TVs in the cafes and bars to make the viewing of the whole race easy from both enclosures.

The big screen and TVs also show the list of runners & riders with approximate odds, and racing from other racecourses also racing on the day.
