The dress code in our private hospitality suites and restaurants is smart while our shared hospitality dress code is smart casual. This means smart jeans and tailored shorts are acceptable but fancy dress is discouraged.
In our Grandstand enclosure, our dress code is also smart casual. This means we are happy to accept smart jeans and tailored shorts, however sports shirts, ripped jeans, casual shorts or trainers will not be permitted.
On our feature racedays, race-goers enjoy dressing smartly for the occasion and on Ladies Day many ladies wear hats – which although not obligatory, is still great fun!
Picnics are allowed in the Centre Course Enclosure or in the main car parks before, after or during racing. However, please note that you cannot bring food and drink into the Grandstand enclosure except on designated family days: Monday 2 May and Sunday 11 September.
With the exception of Guide Dogs of the Blind, dogs are not permitted to enter the racecourse. In the interests of animal welfare, no dogs are permitted to be left in cars and Bath Racecourse politely request that all dogs are left at home.
At all meetings we ask you to ensure that no flash photography takes place near the horses. Otherwise you are welcome to take photographs for personal non-commercial use only. During live music and entertainment, the artists' management retain all image rights. Any photographer that is felt to be impeding or contravening these rights without accreditation and prior written consent will be requested to leave and escorted from the premises. You cannot take images for commercial purposes without prior permission from the racecourse office and provision of press accreditation. GL Multimedia provides a professional and reliable service photographing all aspects of the day’s racing. Gavin James www.gjmultimedia.co.uk
