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."
