Set on its own island and 165 acres of stunning Berkshire countryside, on the River Thames and in the shadow of Windsor Castle, Royal Windsor Racecourse is the perfect destination for racing and events and the place to be on a summer’s evening. The friendly, colourful and exciting atmosphere makes for a memorable and thrilling experience each and every time. The racecourse is also proud to say that they are the only racecourse located on an island, one of only three figure of eight courses in the UK and is the only racecourse in the country where you can arrive in style by catching a river boat from Windsor Town centre and enjoy a drink on the River Thames before stepping off onto the racecourse’s private jetty.

With 27 racing fixtures between April and October, featuring the famous Monday Night Racing, Gentlemen’s Day and Music Live, Royal Windsor Racecourse offers a vibrant, social and unique racing experience, stunning settings and first-class hospitality. Add some colour to your 2020 racing diary with an innovative 2020 racing programme.
With 27 racedays in 2020 and a variety of themes, the racecourse aims to offer a unique experience for you and your guests. This season, the racecourse will be offering a selection of culinary experiences across three luxurious restaurants, including the 1866, The Deck and The Gastro @ Royal Windsor Steakhouse, where you can expect to be served mouth-watering cuts of steak within a beautiful dining space.

Looking for a unique setting? The racecourse can offer a unique location to dazzle friends, family or clients. The relaxed atmosphere of your private box, food and drinks options offers you the chance to entertain or celebrate, have a flutter, watch the racing action unfold all within your exclusive area.

With extensive grass and hard standing areas that are licensed for entertainment, food and beverages, this venue is large enough to cater for concerts, festivals and charity events during the warm summer months, and spectacular winter wonderlands and firework displays in the winter months. Royal Windsor Racecourse is perfectly placed to be a unique conference and event venue - far enough from the hustle and bustle of central London but close enough to be a viable alternative, with fantastic motorway links.
