At Newton Abbot Racecourse we have a dedicated picnic area for you to enjoy your day in the great outdoors.

If you’re looking to enjoy a picnic during your visit, be sure to visit our Family Enclosure in the centre of the racecourse where you’ll find a dedicated picnic area.

Please note, for health and safety purposes it is not possible to picnic in the car park area as previously we have had incidents where loose horses have entered the car park areas. For the safety of everyone at the racecourse, we now have a dedicated picnic area in the Family Enclosure for you to enjoy during your visit.

Please note, no alcohol is permitted to be brought into the racecourse and bag searches are in operation at all enclosures.

This year with the introduction of our new ticket store we have changed our admission badges to e-tickets which can be printed at home. If you do not have access to a printer, please call the office on 01626 353235 for assistance.

Do I have to print my tickets at home?

To ensure that you and other racegoers can access the racecourse as quickly as possible we ask that you print your e-tickets at home prior to your arrival to minimise queue times. A separate ticket should be printed for each member of your party.

What happens if I forget to print my ticket or bring it with me on the day?

If you forget to bring your printed e-ticket with you on the day, you will be escorted to the racecourse office.

What happens if I buy tickets for multiple people?

Each person in your party will need their own e-ticket. If you plan to arrive separately, please ensure that each person has their own ticket for when they arrive.

Please keep all tickets separately as tickets can only be scanned once.

Do I have to queue in the same queue as those who want to buy tickets on the day?

Separate queues will be in operation for those who have e-tickets away from those who wish to purchase on the day to help speed up your admission to the racecourse.

Shareholders and Annual Members will each be issued with a personalised entry card with a unique bar code and metal badge. Both elements must be shown to gain entry to the course.
