Venue Etiquette

Relaxed Atmosphere

Chepstow racecourse has a relaxed dress code in the Grandstand & Paddock Enclosure and fancy dress is welcomed when appropriate. For our Premier Enclosure we operate a smart-casual dress code. We expect all our visitors to behave in a friendly and socially acceptable manner so everyone has an enjoyable experience.

Premier Enclosure

Chepstow racecourse operates a strict smart-casual dress code in the Premier Enclosure for certain fixtures. We find that racegoers on these days like to make it a special occasion and choose to dress accordingly. Please be aware that trainers, t-shirts, fancy dress, sportswear and swimwear are not accepted as appropriate dress. 

  • Strictly smart shoes only (formal dress shoes)
  • No trainers, canvas shoes, sandals or flip-flops
  • No sportswear including football or rugby shirts

The above dress code does not apply to children under the age of 10.

Grandstand & Paddock Enclosure

In the Grandstand & Paddock Enclosure the dress code is more relaxed. Shorts and T-Shirts are worn by racegoers enjoying the sun. More relaxed footwear, including trainers and flip-flops are fine within this enclosure.

Fancy Dress

Fancy dress is allowed at Chepstow Racecourse on all days within the Grandstand & Paddock Enclosure. However, fancy dress is not permitted within the Premier Enclosure or Hospitality at any time.


For the enjoyment of all, we expect all our visitors in both our enclosures to behave in a friendly and socially acceptable manner towards each other.
