About

Royal Ascot is one of the pinnacle events of the summer social season and is certainly a must-attend event of the year and a quintessentially British day out.

Royal Ascot is Britain’s most valuable race meeting, attracting many of the world’s finest racehorses to compete for more than £6.58milllion in prize money. Our eighteen Group races, eight of them in Group One, have made legends of the finest thoroughbreds. Black Caviar, Frankel, Yeats – all are Royal Ascot winners turned household names.

In 2013, The Queen watched her horse, Estimate, triumph in the Gold Cup. A dedicated racehorse owner, she has attended every Royal Meeting during her reign and the Royal Procession is always an iconic moment to herald the start of every raceday.

Anticipated and revered, these five days are made for socialising. Long seen as a spectacle of fashion and style, they are referenced the world over. Each year the meeting is broadcast to audiences around the globe, yet to experience it in person is something altogether more special.

Experience all the elements of Royal Ascot in 2018: the racing, the pageantry, the dining and the style!

There are three enclosures to choose from, each with its own individual character, and all put you at the heart of the racing action.

Anticipated and revered, these five days are made for socialising. Long seen as a spectacle of fashion and style, they are referenced the world over. Each year the meeting is broadcast to audiences around the globe, yet to experience it in person is something altogether more special.

The celebrations will commence at 2pm each day as Her Majesty The Queen arrives in her horse-drawn landaus, with superb racing action from 2.30pm onwards.

After racing, traditional singing around the Bandstand commences in Grandstand Admission at approximately 6pm.
