Royal Ascot is Britain’s most valuable race meeting, attracting many of the world’s finest race horses to compete for more than £6.58million 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 race day.
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.

Choosing an enclosure
Hospitality experiences are available in the historic Royal Enclosure, Queen Anne Enclosure and new Village Enclosure. Widely regarded as the historic heart of Royal Ascot, the Royal Enclosure was a space exclusively reserved for the family, guests and household of King George III at the running of the first Gold Cup in 1807. To this day membership continues by invitation only but fine dining guests in the Royal Enclosure will enjoy all its privileges afforded with a guest day badge. Hospitality guests in both Queen Anne Enclosure and the Village Enclosure contribute to the occasion through a smart dress code but one that is less formal than the Royal Enclosure.
