There are 4 different areas or 'Enclosures' at Pontefract Racecourse.
Broadly speaking, the more expensive the enclosure, the better the facilities are. The more you pay, the closer you are to the Winning Post too!
But that's not to say that every enclosure does not have its advantages!
Whichever area you choose, if you decide you'd like to 'upgrade' on the day, then please visit the transfer gates or the Raceday Office where you will simply pay the difference in price between the areas!
A Premier Enclosure Badge gives access to each of the areas listed below.

The most cost effective Enclosure is the Picnic Enclosure!
With a large expanse of grass, this area is normally packed out on Sunday race meetings with families enjoying a picnic, children's rides, bouncy castles and the like!
It's open on every day and is especially popular with racegoers who like to bring their car in to the Course and park up next to the rails!
There's a tea bar and fast food units in this area!
