Ascot Racecourse

A racecourse rich in history and heritage, hosting one of the world’s most prestigious race meetings, Royal Ascot, as well as 21 racedays and numerous non-racing events each year. Founded in 1711 by Queen Anne who, when riding out from Windsor Castle, came across a piece of land “ideal for horses to gallop at full stretch” and Ascot Racecourse was born. In the 300 years since, we’ve seen champions crowned and legends made, and are delighted to now welcome hundreds of thousands of racegoers each year.  We hope to welcome you to Ascot soon.

Ascot Racecourse is a dual-purpose British racecourse, located in Ascot, Berkshire, England, about 25 miles west of London. Ascot is used for thoroughbred horse racing, and it hosts 13 of Britain’s 36 annual Flat Group 1 horse races and three Grade 1 Jumps races
