Great British Hamper Hospitality Critic Review

Introduction

The Great British Picnic Enclosure is a relaxed setting along the Tattenham Straight, allowing you to enjoy a flexible and casual day out. The Great British Hamper package provides you with a luxury hamper, however, this package is ideal for friends but not premium corporate hospitality.

Location

The Enclosure is situated about a third of the way along the Tattenham Straight, a pivotal point as the horses approach the final furlongs of the race.

Facility/Décor

This package relies on the weather to be kind as you enjoy your hamper al fresco, with seating provided close to the rails. You will be able to watch the horses as they make their move for victory along the finishing straight.

Private Tables

You will be allocated a picnic bench for your group.

Admission

Your admission badge provides access into the Tattenham Enclosure. You do not have access to the main Grandstand.

Catering

Your Luxury Hamper includes a 4-course picnic for two, such as Liver Pate, Beef/Salmon with salads, Chocolate Pudding & Cheeses. You also get scones, cream & jam for the afternoon. Please note you are not allowed to bring any additional food or drink items into the Enclosure. The hamper wicker basket is yours to take away at the end of the day.
