Best Mate Enclosure at Cheltenham Racecourse for the Cheltenham Festival

Best Mate Enclosure

Best Mate might be the cheapest ticket choice but offers arguably the best atmosphere. 

The enclosure is positioned opposite the main Grandstand, providing an excellent view of the racing and top-class betting facilities, bars and a variety of food choices. 

Party in the Pavilion acts as the enclosure's own live music venue during The Festival, with DJs and bands playing throughout the week. It's ideal for the novice racegoers who are eager to enjoy the atmosphere and get up close to the racing.

Access to the Parade Ring or additional activities and entertainment such as the Shopping Village is not available from Best Mate.
