Private Hospitality, Restaurant Guests and Owners & Trainers
We encourage smart attire; gentlemen are asked to wear a smart shirt, although a tie is not essential. Smart denim with no rips or tears and long, tailored shorts are acceptable. No sports or denim shorts, T-shirts, vests, sports or supporter shirts, tracksuits, sportswear (including trainers) or bare chests. Gentlemen’s flip flops or sandals are also not permitted.
Bath Racecourse reserves the right to refuse admission to anyone who is considered inappropriately dressed.
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: May Bank Holiday Monday and the Sunday in 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. Matthew Webb provides a professional and reliable service photographing all aspects of the day’s racing. firstname.lastname@example.org
