Ascot Racecourse is synonymous with quality, style and excellence in providing unparralleled racing and a memorable day out. Although best known for its flat racing, proudly hosting the Royal Ascot Meeting each June, the racecourse also hosts jumps meetings from November until April.
You will receive a confirmation email which you will need to bring with you to Ascot Racecourse on the day in order to receive your tickets.
Outside of Royal Ascot, spectacular racing takes place throughout the year, each raceday offering a unique theme and atmosphere including the King George VI Weekend in July, the Shergar Cup and Concert in August, a Beer Festival in October and a Fireworks Spectacular in November, as well as four dedicated family racedays and much more. It’s a perfect family day out with free admission for all accompanied children under 18.
The King Edward VII Enclosure is our premium ticket on all racedays outside of Royal Ascot providing racegoers exclusive access to Level 4 of the Grandstand. From the balconies on Level 4, racegoers can enjoy spectacular views of both the thrilling action on the track and the Winners Enclosure in the Parade Ring.
Racegoers will also be able to enjoy an even wider selection of bars and restaurants, as you escape from the hustle and bustle of Queen Anne Enclosure. On our premier racedays, racegoers will also have exclusive access to the lawns in front of the Winning Post.
The Queen Anne Enclosure provides excellent facilities and viewing areas at ground level. The Parade Ring and track are both within a short walking distance, reached by crossing the Concourse of the main Grandstand. There are a variety of places to eat and drink, with betting available from the bookmakers in the betting ring, totepool kiosks, and betting shops in the main Grandstand.
Please note: Racegoers in this area do not have access to Level 4 of the Grandstand. The opportunity to upgrade to King Edward VII Enclosure is subject to availability on the day.
Children under 18 years are allowed into the racecourse free of charge on all racedays, when accompanied by a paying adult.
Guidance is provided on how to dress for a day at the races (for racedays outside the Royal Meeting).
