Doncaster Racecourse underwent substantial renovation – at a cost of £34.5 million – in 2006 and 2007, and now boasts four enclosures.

The Premier Enclosure, located on the third floor of the new Urban-i Stand, is an exclusive enclosure that provides excellent views of the racecourse and access to restaurants. Early booking for this enclosure is recommended. A fairly strict dress code is applied.

The County Enclosure – a renovated and larger version of the previous Members Enclosure – is located on the first and second floor of the Urban-i Stand. It includes several bars and restaurants, and provides access to the parade ring and winners enclosure. As for the Premier Enclosure, early booking is recommended.

The new Urban-i Grandstand Enclosure is a light, open space with outdoor terrace seating that provides good views of the course, parade ring and winners circle. This enclosure includes several food outlets and bars, as well as easy access to the betting circle. No dress code applies.

The Family Enclosure – suitable for children and with no dress code – includes tote betting facilities, a cash machine, a food point and a bar. You can bring picnics into this enclosure.
