Royal Ascot is a national institution and the premier sporting and social event in the summer calendar. Each year, during the third week in June, tradition, pageantry, fashion and style come together in a glorious confection at one of the most beautiful racecourses in the country right next to Windsor Great Park.
The Royal Procession starts each day's action at around 2pm, with racing during the rest of the afternoon until the last race at around 5.30pm. The quality of the horseracing is simply outstanding with millions in prize money on offer over the five days and eighteen Group races, including at least one Group One (most prestigious) event each day.
Come with us on Gold Cup Day (colloquially known as Ladies' Day) and see top class thoroughbreds and world–famous jockeys competing in six races including the legendary Gold Cup, a battle of stamina and determination over two miles and four furlongs and one of the most sought–after prizes in flat racing. You will also experience Royal Ascot's unique focus on fashion and fun, and although the whole week of Royal Ascot is a fashion show like no other, it is Thursday when the designer creations and millinery masterpieces reach their zenith and the elegance of the ladies' outfits is matched only by the flair of their hats!
The Windsor Enclosure is an informal area of Royal Ascot, but many racegoers choose to dress up for the occasion, and this is encouraged. Fancy dress, novelty and branded or promotional clothing is not permitted under any circumstances.
For a supplement of £40pp you can upgrade to a Queen Anne Enclosure (formerly the Grandstand Enclosure) ticket. This gives access to the Lower Grandstand, lawns and Concourse, and the Parade Ring and track are both within a short walking distance. Here the dress code is more prescriptive; men are required to wear a suit, shirt and tie, and ladies must wear modest clothing with a hat, headpiece or fascinator. Very revealing or transparent clothing is not permitted; please see the Ascot Racecourse website for more detailed information.
