The winning race day formula
The South East is remarkably close to a number of fantastic racecourses. As well as giving you a choice of courses, you can check out what special packages are available. For example, you can book a day at the races that includes not just entry but lunch and even a Champagne reception.
You may want to consider race day packages that include additional luxury extras. For example, some racecourses offer complimentary race day programmes, giving you an instant overview of the day’s events, and high-class options such as canapes, seafood platters and even free drinks.
How to plan a day at the races
Before you book a day at the races, check what options are available. Can you book seats in a top enclosure? Is lunch on the menu? What other catering facilities are available?
The most popular race day packages include admission to a grandstand enclosure, a free programme, glass of bubbly, buffet or formal lunch and strawberries and cream.
While many racecourses offer free parking, finding a convenient place to park when you are meeting up with friends, relatives, colleagues or business associates can be a real hassle. That is why many people choose to hire a vintage bus to get everyone there together, at the same time.
Choose the best day for your racecard outing
Brighton Racecourse, for example, will have 21 fixtures in 2018. With events running from April to October, you can plan your day at the races around other family and work commitments. Check out the racing calendar for the most thrilling experience. At Brighton, the three-day Marathon Bet Festival, taking place in August, is tipped to be the highlight of the season.
You might want to consider organising your trip to coincide with Ladies’ Day or a similar, themed event. Once you have chosen your date, book your transport. Don’t forget to make guests aware of any dress codes and venue etiquette.
Your transport for a day at the races
When considering transport options for a day at the races, consider convenience, cost and style. Nobody wants to arrive for a day at the races in a minibus. To really make an impression, think about group transport that will ensure the day is even more memorable.
Vintage bus hire is perfect for a trip to the races. As well as keeping a group together from the start of the day, it is comfortable, stylish and cost effective.
