Raceday packages offer additional ways to make the most of the day. Choose from the Fish and Fizz Package or the Racegoers Package.

The former comprises admission to the main enclosure, racecard, and seafood platter and glass of champagne from the new Champagne and Seafood Bar, ideal for those who prefer to enjoy raceday in style. The Racegoers Package replaces the seafood and champagne with a roast of the day and a pint. Packages must be booked in advance and are not available on Boxing Day.
