Viewing areas and other facilities for disabled guests.
With the introduction of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) in October 2005, Haydock Park Racecourse, in common with all premises offering access to the Public in England and Wales, assumed a mandatory obligation to provide easy access to all parts of its premises for people with Disabilities, wherever reasonably practicable. The Act recognizes, however, that full access is not always reasonably achievable in older existing buildings, and therefore states that in these cases people with disabilities should be able to gain easy access into the premises and that the services they require should be made available to them in close proximity to their entry point.
Haydock Park comprises an interlinked grouping of multi-storey buildings on one site, some dating from just pre First World War and some updated as recently as 2008 and with significant changes in floor levels both between and within individual buildings.
We are located within 200 acres of historical parkland and are primarily a racecourse also available for conferences and events.
To meet the requirements of the legislation, we have made substantial practicable changes to our facilities that include:
Haydock Park is committed to improving access and movement through the buildings for people with physical, sensory and psychological disabilities and impairments through many ongoing upgrading and improvement programmes.
NB. To access the disabled viewing facilities on racedays customers will be ask to show a valid disability badge.
Disabled Toilet facilities can be located in:
All disabled toilets on site are on the National Key Scheme. We would advise disabled customers visiting the racecourse to bring along your own radar key to access the facilities.

Induction Loops are available in the Newton, Tattersalls, Centenary and Tommy Whittle Stands.
