Ascot racecourse was founded 300 years ago by Queen Anne and is renown for quality, excellence and memorable days out. The highlight of the calendar is Royal Ascot which takes place in June with five full days of tradition, pageantry and style. Racing takes place throughout the year and each race day offers a unique theme and atmosphere including, summer cocktail party, an 80s concert, a beer festival and fireworks as well as dedicated family racedays.
A family day might include meeting characters from TV shows. Ben & Holly from their Little Kingdom, Scooby Doo, Fireman Sam as well as Peppa Pig and George to tell stories in the Bandstand. Choose from a variety of lunch options including: restaurants, tea rooms, takeaway or even bring your own picnic - whatever is best for you. Some people splash out on one of the 255 private boxes at Ascot to make the day a truly memorable event.
Remember that for whatever occasion you are visiting, all racegoers are requested to adhere to the dress code for the day. You need to check your ticket type and that you are dressed appropriately for the enclosure and raceday you have booked. Its a good idea to check the fixtures by using the website.
