Disabled Access

We want to make your visit as easy as possible

Viewing areas and facilities for disabled visitors


There are areas set aside for customers with a Blue Badge to allow forward parking in Car Park 20 which is close to the racecourse entrances. Please note there is a charge for parking in this area during the Investec Derby Festival.  For all other fixtures disabled parking is free of charge.


Entry To The Racecourse

At the three entrances into the racecourse there are access points for wheelchair users, semi-ambulant visitors, pushchairs and those accompanied by assistance dogs.


Assistant Entry

If you need an assistant to accompany you to and at the races, one complimentary admission ticket will be provided for your assistant at the entrance on the day. Racegoers with less obvious disabilities may be asked for documentation as proof.


Viewing Areas

There is a raised viewing ramp next to the track for customers in wheelchairs to use. There are viewing areas suitable for wheelchairs on the balconies of all boxes and private suites. There is additional wheelchair viewing for customers in wheelchairs on the first floor of the Duchess’s Stand. This area can only be accessed via the lifts by entrance 4 to the Duchess’s Stand.


Toilet Facilities

In both the Duchess’s Stand and the Queen’s Stand there are disabled toilet facilities available on each floor.


Auditory Assistance

Individual Induction Loops are available for hire from the Main Reception in the Admin Building.


Assistance During Your Visit

If you require information or assistance during your visit, please report to the Main Reception in the Admin Building where they will be pleased to assist you. Alternatively, please ask any member of staff, who will be more than happy to assist you.



Both the Duchess’s Stand and Queen's Stand have lifts allowing access to each floor of each Grandstand.


Assistance Dogs

These are most welcome but we ask that they are kept on a lead at all times.
