Ascot Racecourse and Royal Ascot
There are few sporting venues that can match the rich heritage and history of Ascot Racecourse. For almost 250 years, Royal Ascot has established itself as a national institution and the centrepiece of the British social calendar as well as being the ultimate stage for the best racehorses in the world. Tradition, pageantry, fashion and style all meet in a glorious setting at one of the most beautiful racecourses in the country.

Royal Ascot 2014.... Tuesday 17th to Saturday 21st June.
Each day follows the same format with The Royal Procession making its way from the Golden Gates, along the racecourse and into the Parade Ring from 2.00pm each afternoon. The first race of six each day is at 2.30pm and the last race is at 5.35pm, after which racegoers are invited to celebrate their winnings as they sing traditional favourites, and a few new ones, around the bandstand.
Ascot Racecourse is ideally situated in beautiful wooded countryside adjoining Windsor Great Park in Berkshire, about a 50 minute drive or train journey from Central London and only a few minutes from the M4 and M25 motorways.
