Arrival and Bag Checks
Please allow plenty of time to get into the course, particularly on busy days. To speed things up we strongly recommend you book in advance and arrive around one-and-a-half to two hours before the first race: peak queues tend to form around 30 minutes before the first race, so avoid this if possible. Our staff work to get everyone in as quickly as possible but when everyone arrives at the same time, it can be tricky!
We conduct checks of all bags brought into the Grandstand & Paddock and Premier Enclosures – please do not bring any alcohol, food, drink or (need we say it) weapons of any kind into the course. These will be confiscated if you do, and not returned to you.
We also conduct random checks on cars coming into the Course Enclosure to ensure the alcohol limit is being observed.
You have two ways of betting on course at Beverley; with our traditional on course bookmakers, or the Tote.
The Tote is available on-course and is a pool betting service (like a lottery). This means that for each race, all the money for the different bet types are put into one pool and then shared out amongst the winners after each race. Your betting on the racecourse with the Tote supports racing, with the majority of revenues flowing back to that racecourse.
There are several bet types available with the Tote such as win, place, each way (win and a place bet) and an exacta (picking the first two in the correct order). One of the most famous tote bets is the placepot which rewards customers who can pick a horse to place in each of the first 6 races. The average dividend of the Placepot is over £454* to a £1 stake so it is a fun bet where you can a large amount for a small stake.
The Tote has a minimum bet of just £2 and accepts cash and card across all courses making it one of the most convenient ways to place a bet on-course with large payouts available for relatively small stakes
You also have the option to place a ‘Lucky Pick’ bet, which is similar to the lucky dip on the National Lottery. However, the Lucky Pick is designed to be smarter than a random lucky dip as it uses a special formula which is weighted towards the more likely outcomes in an event.
Whatever way you make your selection- by choosing your favourite jockey silks or studying form, there are plenty of betting options and the friendly Tote team are always on hand to help with your selections.
Eating and Drinking
There’s a wealth of places to eat and drink throughout the course; the Attraction Restaurant, Cleverly’s Bistro, our beautiful Laurent Perrier Champagne bar in the Premier Enclosure and real ale outlets; visit our Enclosures page to see what’s available where.
We actively support the RCA and Drink Aware’s Pace Yourself campaign – encouraging responsible drinking on a raceday to make sure you last the distance. Find out more about Drink Aware here but the message is simple – allow one soft drink to every alcoholic one.
Visit Beverley with confidence knowing that we have a zero tolerance policy on antisocial behaviour; the police are present at all racedays and anyone found to be drunk and disorderly will be evicted with no refund.
What to Wear
We operate a suggested dress code at Beverley. This is the most relaxed area on course, feel free to dress comfortably – shorts, T-shirts and (non-offensive!) fancy dress are all fine.
The Grandstand & Paddock sports a variety of styles seen; on busy days dresses and smart jackets wouldn’t be out of place here, but on quieter days attire is generally more relaxed. Jeans, trainers, sportswear and (non offensive!) fancy dress are all welcome here too.
This is our smartest enclosure so why not dress to impress! Suits, dresses, ties and hats are all welcome in this enclosure. Whilst we suggest you make the most of the opportunity to dress up (it is the races after all), tailored shorts and t-shirts are permitted; we just suggest your overall appearance is smart. Sports wear and fancy dress is not permitted, other than on the Bygone Raceday and 70s Racenight.
