Added Facilities for Racing Saturday 13 July & Sunday 21 July

Extra bars & toilet facilities added for weekend fixtures to make a more comfortable racing experience for all

Due to the anticipated larger crowds at the two forthcoming racing fixtures on Saturday 13 July and Sunday 21 July and following feedback from the Easter Saturday fixture, we are pleased to announce that we will be adding additional facilities to the racecourse on these days to help ease queues and ensure the best possible racing experience for all.

Course Enclosure

Alongside the new Course Enclosure bar & café, which is situated within the Course Enclosure grandstand, and the Alfresco catering outlet serving a range of drinks and snacks, the following facilities will also be available for racegoers:

- Extra ladies’ toilets – the number of permanent ladies’ toilets has increased to 10
- Additional temporary toilets
- An outside bar serving a selection of beverages
- A cans bar for those wanting canned drinks
- Ice cream van

The free children’s play area will also be open to help keep the younger visitors entertained during the day.

Please note: No ball games are allowed in this area.

Paddock Enclosure

Alongside the core facilities within the Paddock Enclosure such as the Betting Hall bars, Silks Lounge, Paddock Carvery Restaurant, Owners & Trainers Bar and Annual Members’ Lounge, the following additional facilities will be added to the Paddock Enclosure:

- Two additional can bars serving a selection of canned drinks
- A Pimm’s bar
- Ice cream van

Tickets and Arrival

With another weekend of beautiful weather forecast and the popularity of a weekend racing fixture at Newton Abbot Racecourse we recommend that racegoers arrive in plenty of time to ensure that they can move through security and ticket checks in plenty of time before the first race at 14:25.

Gates will open at 12:25.

Entry queues will be split into two lines – one for pre-paid tickets and one for those wishing to pay on the gate on the day.

Tickets can be purchased online in advance until 10am on the day, after this time they will be available on the gate. For those wishing to enjoy the day in the Paddock Enclosure, book online in advance to save on standard Paddock Admission fees.

We look forward to welcoming you all and hope you have a wonderful day at Newton Abbot Racecourse.
