Each-way bet

The home of the eponymous Festival and the Queen Mother Champion Chase, Cheltenham racecourse now boasts a new five-storey, 6,500-person stand as part of its £45 million redevelopment – with views over not only the track and winners’ enclosure but also, from the rear, to the picturesque Malvern Hills. The new structure, designed by Gloucester-based Roberts Limbrick Architects, has been fitted out with over 1900m2 of Pilkington Insulight glass to match the existing elsewhere, to keep the champagne bar, fine-dining restaurant and the Royal Box nice and cool and maintain those crystal clear views out to the form.
