Following the BHA's announcement on 17th March 2020, all horse racing fixtures will be suspended from 18th March until at least the end of April. Read our News section for more information.
Sedgefield Racecourse aims to offer a comfortable experience for all, with easy access to all areas. We also offer free admission for proven carers of paying disabled customers.
Please note many of the paths and main areas are tarmac, though some areas will require you to cross grassed areas. Please be aware of changing ground conditions in rainy weather, and notify one of our stewards if you require help.
Please be aware that the only external covered viewing is located in the two Grandstand and Paddock stands and can only be accessed via terraced steps. In the event of rain, there is cover in the bars all of which include a TV screen.
We do advise that you bring waterproof clothing and an umbrella if rain is forecast, particularly those confined to a wheelchair who may experience a delay in reaching a covered area.
We have a designated, reserved area close to the admissions turnstiles for disabled parking, though we do recommend early arrival (particularly on feature race days) to secure your parking in this location. If you advise our car park stewards of your disability, they can direct you to the reserved parking. Please be aware that although our car park is on flat land, it can be uneven in places.
Our Grandstand & Paddock Enclosure has plenty of tarmac access to the front (trackside) and at the rear of most stands. There is also a tarmac path from the parade ring and winning enclosure to the front trackside. We also have disabled toilets in these enclosures, as well as TV screens within the bars should you prefer to stay seated inside.
If you wish to have a flutter at the races, the bookmakers betting ring is tarmacked and can be found to the front of the Paxtons stand. There are also Tote betting facilities in most of the bars and restaurants should you wish to stay inside.
