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.

Booked a table for 10 in the restaurant and I cannot speak highly enough of the staff, they were attentive and professional at all times, nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant was beautifully set out and spacious and the food was excellent. An excellent day!

The race days are great. It's fun and lively. The Track is in good shape. It's a nice track and you can easily see the horses. They should upgrade the bar areas soon. They need it and the loos need an upgrade.

Attended a 60th birthday party. Excellent setting, with very good service. Bar lacked some "extras" like lime cordial, but catered for most needs. Food was very good & well presented.

I was really looking forward to seeing Bryan Adams I had been to a Tom Jones event at Sandown before . Booked the tickets 8 months in advance. Where do I start? The place was so packed that you couldn't move. It looked like they have sold 1.5 times the amount of tickets they should have. We couldn't hear the... More

We attended the races on Friday 9th Sept. Having been to a number of different race course I have to say Sandown is probably one of the best. There is ample parking and even on exiting with everyone else at rush hour getting on to the A3 to head home is quick and easy. The course is very well kept... More

I've been to Sandown twice now.The first time got dragged to Boyzone which was ok considering I really don't like them and then in July I saw Brian Adams who was excellent. You can bring a picnic with limited booze. Although food is also available to buy it's not cheap and alcohol is readily available at various locations around the... More
