Set on its own island and 165 acres of stunning Berkshire countryside - on the banks of the River Thames and in the shadow of Windsor Castle - Royal Windsor Racecourse’s vibrant atmosphere makes for a memorable and thrilling experience each and every time and is the place to be on a summer’s evening.

With 26 racing fixtures between April and October 2023, Royal Windsor Racecourse offers a vibrant, social and unique racing experience, stunning settings and first-class hospitality. Add some colour to your 2023 social diary with this year’s exciting racing programme – pairing gripping racing with a host of music and entertainment - including the infamous themed Monday Night Racing fixtures and the July Racing Weekend featuring Gentlemen’s Day.

Unique to Royal Windsor is the ability to arrive in style via river boat from Windsor Town centre, where you can enjoy a drink on the River Thames before stepping off onto the racecourse’s private jetty and enjoying a memorable day or evening at the races.

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.

      Normally a good night out. Don’t bother buying club passes. Security non existent in grandstand. £66 wasted. Lovely place though. Shame about the poor horses. Read full review
