Plumpton Racecourse’s facilities provide an accessible environment for all our racegoers, including those with young children.
We are proud to participate in the Sunflower Scheme, where those with non-visible disabilities can feel comfortable in public. Should you see someone wearing a sunflower lanyard, if possible, approach the customer and ask if they need any assistance.
Blue Badge holders are given forward parking in the car parks. These parking areas are subject to availability on the day and provide closer proximity to the Racecourse entrances.
COMPANION / PERSONAL ASSISTANT
Should a disabled guest need to bring a carer, the carer is admitted free of charge. Tickets for carers are available from any Ticket Office, and we request that the disabled guest accompanies the carer when collecting the ticket. The Companion/Personal Assistant policy can be found here.
There are wheelchairs available, subject to availability, for free hire, one at each of the North & South Entrances.
ACCESSIBLE TOILET FACILITIES
There are fully accessible toilets in the Paddock Bar (Sussex Stand Ground Floor) and the Southdown Bar, while there is a further ambulant toilet in the Chaser’s Bar (Lewes Stand).
Audio Induction Loop Systems are available within the Owners &Trainers Bar, the Paddock restaurant and the Chasers Bar.
Assistance Dogs are permitted to all Enclosures, provided they are on a lead at all times.
There are two dedicated accessible viewing areas for wheelchair uses at the Racecourse located within the Grandstand and Paddock enclosure, one close to the home straight South side of the Course Crossing Point in front of the Lewes Stand and another by the Parade ring which is accessible from the Course Crossing Point.
We would ask that just one person or carer accompanies a disabled guest using these viewing areas to maximise the number of people and benefit from them.
