This will be an extremely busy event so please allow extra time to travel to and from the racecourse. Due to limited parking on hard standing ground, we advise people to car share where possible, make use of public transport and taxis, or walk if you can.

Lingfield train station is just a short 5 minute walk from the racecourse.

There is more detailed travel information here but please check local timetables and taxi services before departing.



Please note that parking at the racecourse is on a mixture of hard concrete and grass, and due to a significant amount of rainfall recently, the ground is particularly soft.

Parking is free on site but is limited and will be provided on a first come first served basis, so please arrive early to avoid disappointment and any queues. Please inform the stewards on arrival if you require accessible car parking. 



If you have come as a family today, head over to the hotel lawn for both funfair and pony rides suitable for kids, all free of charge on the hotel lawn. 

We have a variety of roaming entertainment on-site throughout the day, including live music at the front gates on entry and from The Oxted Festival DJs in the Courtyard. 



The forecast for Friday is light showers changing to sunny intervals by early evening, with highs of 12 degrees (as of Wednesday 27th March). Please check the local forecast before departing and dress accordingly!



A range of bars and food outlets are available serving a variety of tasty food and refreshing drinks. A range of vegetarian and vegan food options will be available across the racecourse. Please be aware that no food, drink or picnics can be brought into the racecourse except in the case of a severe food allergy, in which we ask you to contact us directly to arrange bringing in your own food.



We take security and safety very seriously. There will be a strong security presence and you will be subject to a bag search on arrival.

We ask all visitors not to leave bags unattended and to report anything suspicious to a member of staff.



Please remember, the majority of food outlets and bars are card only but we advise you to also bring cash for betting purposes. There are no cash machines on site so please bear this in mind.
