We are now welcoming back Racegoers to our first floor facilities, but on a limited capacity due to a severe flood in late 2023. Please check the individual ticketing page for availability and please purchase in advance of the race meeting.
Southwell Racecourse does all it can to ensure it's venue is accessible for all, so that everyone can enjoy their day out. As well as the facilities detailed below, we also offer car parking spaces for individuals with accessible needs in car parks A and B.
We have wheelchair viewing ramps trackside, so you never miss any of the action and also overlooking the parade ring on the other side of the Grandstand. Speaking of viewing, we have lift access to the second floor of the Grandstand, allowing for fantastic views overlooking the racecourse and the parade ring. Also, the Seasons Restaurant are on the second floor. There are a host of accessible toilets on the ground floor of the racecourse as well.
Personal Assistants will receive free admission to the racecourse when accompanying a paying guest with accessible needs.
Personal Assistant tickets can be claimed by bringing in proof of accessible needs on the day of racing e.g. a Blue Badge (with accompanying photo ID), Disability Living Allowance, Personal Independence Payment or signed letter from GP (with accompanying photo ID). You will need to buy a full price ticket first either online or on the day and then speak to a member of staff on the turnstiles about claiming your free personal assistant badge.
Wheelchair viewing ramps are located on trackside close to the horse walk and overlooking the winner's enclosure and parade ring.
All ground floor facilities (including the whole of the Grandstand enclosure) are accessible. Accessible toilets are situated in the betting hall, food court and on the rear of the Food Pantry.
Lift access is available to access the first floor, premier enclosure bar, restaurant and hospitality boxes. There is a viewing balcony on the first floor and an accessible toilet.
