Tattenham Straight Marquee Hospitality Critic Review


The Tattenham Straight Marquee is a light and spacious hospitality facility positioned next to the Main Grandstand (Duchess’s Stand) on the famous Tattenham Straight - a pivotal point as the horses approach the final furlong of the race.


There is a private viewing terrace in front of the marquee. The land also drops away towards the rails, providing a natural elevated viewing opportunity on the hill or against the rails if you wish to get closer to the horses. The marquee sits mid-way along the Tattenham Straight. There is a giant TV screen opposite the stand to enhance views of the entire race.


The Tattenham Straight Marquee is a large contemporary and smart facility, with floor-to-ceiling glazed windows providing an abundance of natural light. The round tables are nicely decorated.

Private Tables

Private tables are for 10-12 guests, smaller groups will need to share a table.


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


Catering consists of a 3-course plated meal (starter, main, dessert). A light Afternoon Tea of sandwiches and homemade cakes is served later in the day.
