Parade Ring dress code
Ladies and Gentlemen are encouraged to dress up smartly in the Premier Enclosure and Parade Ring. Most gentlemen would choose to wear smart trousers, shirt and formal shoes to complete the look. Whilst there is no formal restriction on wearing jeans, these are rarely seen in the Premier Enclosure.
If you would like to access the parade ring, we do suggest that the premier enclosure dress code is adhered to.
