Owner description: Get your heart racing at Sandown Park Racecourse, Esher. Situated in the picturesque Surrey countryside, yet just 30 minutes from Central London, Sandown Park Racecourse is the versatile venue offering the best of both worlds. Whether you’re in the midst of the action in our Grandstand and Premier enclosures, or receiving some VIP hospitality treatment in our boxes and restaurant- Sandown Park’s race days are an ever-exciting pastime. Watching the Action. Sandown Park's spacious, modern Grandstand has been designed to get you as close to the racing champions as possible, whilst taking in the stunning Surrey scenery. Don’t forget to take a trip down to the Parade Ring to have look at the thoroughbreds and choose your favourite to win before cheering them on with the crowds. The Premier Enclosure. Sandown Park’s Premier Enclosure enjoys unparalleled views of the finish line, and access to a wider range of catering facilities including the Moet and Chandon Bar. Dress code for the racecourse's Premier Enclosure is smart casual. Collared shirts on men (including polo shirts and polo necked jumpers) are preferred and jeans are acceptable as long as they're not torn. Sandown Park doesn't allow trainers, non-tailored shorts, vests, rugby or football tops in its first class enclosure.

“Visit to Sandown Races”
Reviewed 13 December 2013

This is an excellent day out . You do not have to bet any large amounts to experience the thrill and excitement of being at one of the best horse racing venues in the world.
You get excellent views and there all types of catering available ranging from fast food to fine dining.
Parking is free and there is a wonderful camaraderie.
It's very good value and racing is all year.
I prefer the racing over Jumps but the Flat is also excellent.

Went to Gentlemans Day on Saturday 9th November at Sandown Park for my Hen Party...The Buffet lunch was very good and the waiting staff were excellent ...After the races there was a Rock Band karaoke which was brilliant! We felt it was good value for money and a great day was had by all...I would recommend a day here for any occasion as the overall experience was excellent....

“trade fair and dinner”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

I recently attended a trade fair and dinner at the sandown park race course.
Although extreemly busy with so many people taking part-the staff and catering staff at the venue are very helpfull and courteous at all times.
The refreshement area and the main hall was cleaned at very regular intervals and all the litter bins emptied without delay.
The annual gala dinner held in the above hall was fabulous-much exceeding my expectations.
despite many guests in attendance the food was served hot and in good timing with again, very courteous staff in attendance at the tables-waiting on our every need.

“A fun day at the races”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

Went with a group of work colleagues for a fun afternoon and that was exactly what we got. We were in the Premier Enclosure and had an amazing view of the finish line - the fact that, although I was only betting £1/£2 or so on a race, to end the day £30 up was a bonus! A great way to spend a fun afternoon if you don't take it all too seriously!
