The dress code in our private hospitality suites, restaurants and Premier Enclosure is smart casual. Smart jeans are acceptable. However sports shirts, offensive t-shirts, ripped jeans and casual shorts are not permitted. Management reserves the right to deny entry if dressed inappropriately.
In our Grandstand, our dress code is casual. However, offensive t-shirts will not be permitted.
On our feature race days, for example Ladies Day and Gentleman’s Day, race-goers enjoy dressing smartly for the occasion and on Ladies Day many Ladies choose to wear hats - which although not obligatory, is still great fun!
Please note, you cannot bring food and drink into the racecourse. There are various outlets around the racecourse catering to different tastes where you are able to get food and drink.
With the exception of Guide Dogs of the Blind, dogs are not permitted to enter the racecourse. In the interests of animal welfare, no dogs are permitted to be left in cars and Wolverhampton Racecourse politely request that all dogs are left at home.
This is our general entry admission and offers access to our ground floor only, offering various bars and eating outlets.

All enclosures have TOTE and Ladbrokes betting facilities. The Boards and rails bookmakers can be found outside in front of the track. If the weather is inclement, the Boards bookmakers may be found inside the concourse.
If you're looking for a winner in the paddock then a few things to watch out for might include:
Well-toned muscle and just a hint of rib showing is a sign that the horse is in peak physical condition; as with most human runners, sprinters tends to carry a little more muscle (and have quite big backsides!) compared to a horse that runs over longer distances, so bear that in mind.
Advance booking is recommended for all fixtures and saves you money. It is cheaper to book in advance, online than purchasing at the gate. Tickets may be purchased on the day of the fixture. Wright Package and Hospitality packages do require advance booking.
If you are a disabled visitor and require a carer to attend the event with you, it may be possible to claim a discounted or complimentary carer ticket. This can differ for each fixture and/or event, so please check with the sales advisor when you make your booking. They may ask questions to ascertain the nature of your disability to ensure you are offered the best possible seating and eligibility for a carer ticket. Please inform us at the time of booking if you need a wheelchair space or have any special requirements, so that we can arrange for everything to be ready on your arrival.
For our guests with disabilities we will provide a designated viewing area for Music Live Events, please be aware that only one carer can accompany a disabled guest into the area (discretion will be applied where children are also in attendance).
Accompanied under 18's are admitted FREE of charge to both the Grandstand and Premier Enclosures. For restaurant prices please call us on 01902 390011.
