Racecourse Facilities

The enclosures at Bangor on Dee are split into two areas, the Paddock and Course enclosures. Bangor-on-Dee Racecourse is unique as it is the only Racecourse in the country that doesn't have a grandstand. However this does not affect the viewing of the action packed national hunt races as both enclosures are situated on a bank offering panoramic views of the track.

Bangor Races, last furlong Paddock Enclosure:

The Paddock enclosure offers panoramic views over the racetrack and enables the public to view the horses in the pre parade ring, parade ring and winners’ enclosure.

The Paddock and Wynnstay Restaurants and all other private hospitality suites are also included in this area.

Food, drink, betting and convenience facilities are all available, with three public bars, and various snack outlets to cater for racegoers.

A number of tables are made available in the Wynnstay Restaurant for the public to walk in on the day and take advantage of the delicious food on offer (Subject to availability).

Course Enclosure:

Food, drink, betting and convenience facilities are all available and we are happy for visitors to bring picnics to the Course Enclosure. BBQs are permitted on the Course enclosure; however we ask that you are considerate to other racegoers when operating a BBQ. For anyone wishing to bring a Gazebo onto the course enclosure, there are designated Gazebo areas that are clearly signed – there will be a charge per gazebo.


The Paddock Restaurant is a spacious, glass fronted building, accommodating in the region of 170 racegoers. A buzzing atmosphere complements the sumptuous menus and fine wine. If, later in the day, you want to take a breather and view the horses, you can always step outside onto the balcony, view the horses in the Parade Ring and decide which horse you will take a punt on! This winning formula for a day out has racegoers repeat booking over and over again! To ensure the ambience of the restaurant is maintained, bookings of no more than 20 persons will be accepted. If your party is in excess of 20 persons, a Chalet will be better suited to your requirements.
