Ascot is a racecourse located in the town of Ascot in Berkshire, England. Established over 300 years ago by Queen Anne, it is widely regarded as one of the best and most prestigious racecourses in the world. Not only is Ascot associated with high-level horse racing, but it has also become well-known as a place of entertainment, style and sophistication.

Ascot Racecourse provides an intriguing mixture of the traditional and modern, blending heritage with exciting innovation. It runs a year-long programme of events, seven days a week, including Flat Racing, Jump Racing, Group Racing, Endurance Racing, Evening Racing, Music Events and family days. Alongside the racing events, Ascot also hosts live music, after-race concerts and entertainment.

At the heart of Ascot is its renowned Royal Ascot Race Meeting which takes place every year in June; a meeting so popular it is attended by members of the Royal Family. Royal Ascot consists of iconic races, including the King George VI Stakes, the Gold Cup and the most prestigious race of all, the Royal Ascot Stakes, which is raced by the best horses in the world.

In addition to its world-class racing, Ascot offers something extra special in its impressive setting. Ascot races enjoy beautiful scenery with views of the Berkshire and Windsor countryside that can only be described as breath-taking. This elegant setting is further enhanced by the iconic white stands and pavilions, as well as the bright blooms of the seasonal flower patterns The Course home to the event.

Attending Ascot is an event not to be missed, whether as a spectator or a participant. Every race meet at Ascot comes with its own dress code and expectations of style, with an abundance of fascinators and bowler hats to be seen! In 2020, this dress code is the same whatever the weather, but in 2021 Ascot have announced the adoption of a ‘Flex Dress Code’ – meaning a greater range of clothing is accepted, given the continually changing circumstances.

Whilst coronavirus restrictions mean access to the racetrack is currently slightly limited, this quintessentially British event has and will continue to give us a reason to celebrate for years to come.

From the elite-racing, to the vibrant atmosphere and vibrant atmosphere and impressive setting – Ascot truly is a unique British experience.
