Accessibility Info:

Excerpt from the Racecourse's own FAQs (as at 16/12/2016):

"Brighton Racecourse aims to provide an accessible environment for all our racegoers, particularly those with disabilities. We provide disabled parking spaces and ramped access to each public Enclosure. Disabled toilets are available in both the Premier and Grandstand & Paddock enclosure although please be advised they are currently fairly small in size."
