Take my Group to... Royal Ascot 2018

26 March 2018

Top hats and tails, champagne all round and a buzz unlike anywhere else in the world – the Royal Meeting's heritage and status make it one of the year's most hotly anticipated sporting events.

From looking on as the 2pm Royal Procession makes its way to the Royal Enclosure, to taking in races featuring the world’s finest horses and joining the traditional singalongs round the Bandstand at the end of the day, Royal Ascot is an unforgettable sporting and social experience.

With four enclosures and countless ticket upgrades and extras to choose from, Royal Ascot is a unique opportunity to reward high-flying colleagues or channel partners, secure new business or celebrate with big ticket clients.

It’s a day at the races, but not as you know it. Let's take a closer look...

Essential Tips for Royal Ascot 2018

  •  Dress code is a big deal at Ascot – and getting dressed up to the nines is all part of the experience. Requirements will vary depending on your tickets, so be sure to check the What to Wear guide.
  • Unless you have a private box in the Grandstand, you’ll be sharing viewing points with other racegoers. The best spots fill up fast, so find your place 15 mins ahead of a race starting.
  • If your tickets don’t include a free racecard, pick one up from one of the kiosks – it’s essentially a programme with race times, runners and riders, maps and other information.
  • Bring cash with you – there are ATMs on-site but you don’t want to spend your day at Royal Ascot queueing for them.
