How much is admission to the 2022 Cheltenham Festival?

As with any other major horse racing festival, the cost of admission to the 2022 Cheltenham Festival varies according to when you wish to attend and which enclosure you choose. The 2022 Cheltenham Festival is scheduled to take place between Tuesday, March 15 and Friday, March 18.

On all four days, the Best Mate Enclosure, which is situated opposite the main grandstand and adjacent to the finish line, is the cheapest option. Prices range from £44.00 per person, or £40.00 per person if booked in groups of 15 or more, on days one, two and three to £63.00, or £60.00 if booked in bulk, on Gold Cup Day. The Best Mate Enclosure offers head-on views of the racecourse, but no access to the parade ring or winners’ enclosure.

By contrast, the Tattersalls Enclosure does offer access to the pre-parade ring, parade ring and winners’ enclosure, together with side-on views of the final fence and the run-in from opposite the finish line. Unsurprisingly, the Tattersalls Enclosure is correspondingly more expensive, with prices ranging from £59.00 to £78.00 per person throughout the week, again with appropriate discounts for booking in bulk.

At the top end of the scale, aside from various hospitality and ‘luxury’ options – which start at £295.00 per person, per day – the Club Enclosure offers access to all public areas of the racecourse, including the Best Mate and Tattersalls Enclosures. Of course, you pay extra for ‘access-all-areas’ admission, with prices ranging from £89.00 to £110.00 per person, subject to bulk discounts.
