Newbury Racecourse is largely a cashless site for tickets, food and beverage and racecards. On course bookmakers and Tote operators will accept cash. We currently have no operating cash machines, so we would always encourage you to bring cash along with you on the day as well as a payment card.
The Rocking Horse Nursery has a baby room which provides baby changing and feeding facilities for Saturday race days.
Other facilities can be found in the following areas of the racecourse:
- The Hampshire stand Ground Floor Ladies
- The Grandstand Ground Floor Ladies (entrance nearest The Berkshire stand)
- The Berkshire stand Ground Floor Ladies
Toilets are located on each floor of the stands.
A cloakroom is available at the Berkshire Stand Reception for those with Premier Enclosure access, unfortunately no cloakroom facility is available within the Grandstand Enclosure.
Racegoers are encouraged not to bring luggage unless there are exceptional circumstances.
If you appear to our staff to be under age of 25 you will be challenged – to avoid this please take valid ID (valid passport, photo driving licence or PASS card) to either the Berkshire Stand Reception, Copper King Bar or The Many Clouds Bar where you will be issued a Challenge 25 wristband.
Please note that service will be refused to 18-25s without a wristband.
The First Aid Centre is located next to the East Entrance in the Grandstand Enclosure. If you require urgent first aid please contact your nearest steward.
If you have either lost or found a child, please contact your nearest steward.
Information can be found at the Berkshire Stand Reception (ground floor) or at East Entrance.
The taxi drop off and pick up point is located outside East Entrance.
