Cheltenham Gold Cup

First ran as a steeplechase in 1924, the Cheltenham Gold Cup is the pinnacle of the jump racing season. Racing a distance of just over 3 miles and with 22 fences to jump, only the very best jockeys and horses have what it takes to win what is often referred to as the Blue Ribbon event of jump racing.

 

Race Course

Our tickets provide access to The Tattersalls Enclosure, this gives us a great choice of viewing and refreshment options as well as betting facilities if you fancy a flutter. These tickets also allow entry into the famous Parade Ring we can have a good look at the horses as well as giving access to some of the most wanted spots on the racecourse. The Shopping Village is a must visit with over 70 trade stands. Though there is no strict dress code in the enclosure, a trip to the races is always a good excuse to dress up.

Gratuities
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below. The Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual.We suggest a group collection at the beginning of your holiday to cover drivers, guides and hotel staff (including restaurant, kitchen and reception staff) of approximately £5. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of bar staff and housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (the rounding up of the drinks bill and a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, restaurants expect a 10% gratuity (do check that service has not already been added to your bill). For taxis 10% of the metered fare.
 
Dress Code
Though there is no strict dress code in the enclosure, a trip to the races is always a good excuse to dress up. The dress code for evenings is smart with gentlemen requested to wear a shirt and tie.
