Join us for Derby Day
Derby Day at Epsom is a must on the social and racing calendar. High fashion and exhilarating flat racing combine to make this a truly memorable day.
Located on the downs in Surrey, this racecourse is steeped in history. Since the first recorded race meeting in 1661 up until the present day, the winners roll call contains many famous runners and riders.
The Queen’s Stand is the premium enclosure set on the finishing line and above the weighing room with prime viewing of both the Winner’s Circle and the finishing straight. You can access the Parade Ring and follow horses all the way to the track before taking up a spot to watch the race on the steppings or the Queen’s Stand Lawn. Ticket holders can also access the Duchess’s Stand giving you additional access to bookmakers’ as well as main public betting hall and Champagne lawn.
Dress Code: Either black or grey morning dress with a top hat, service dress or full national costume is obligatory for gentlemen on Investec Derby Day. Ladies must wear formal day dress, or a tailored trouser suit, with a hat or substantial fascinator.
Experience the thrill of the races as the horses gallop down the finishing straight up to the winning post, absorb yourself in the electric atmosphere all from within our Grandstand enclosure and the Duchess’s Stand.
Dress Code: Whilst no formal dress code applies we recommend both gentleman and ladies come dressed to impress, you won’t be out of place in a suit and tie, a dress and hat or fascinator.
