RACEGOERS' GUIDE

Guide to Ticket Types


PREMIER ADMISSION

Premier Admission 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 Grandstand Admission. On our premier racedays, racegoers will also have exclusive access to the lawns in front of the Winning Post.

GRANDSTAND ADMISSION

Grandstand Admission 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 Premier Admission is subject to availability on the day.

CHILDREN

Children under 18 years are allowed into the racecourse free of charge on all racedays, when accompanied by a paying adult.

ROYAL ASCOT

ROYAL ENCLOSURE

The Royal Enclosure is at the heart of Royal Ascot, with exclusive viewing areas and some of the best facilities on the course. The enclosure includes exclusive access to the viewing area by the Winning Post and the Royal Enclosure Gardens, perfect for relaxing with friends and guests, as well as all facilities in Grandstand Admission.

 

 

Entry to the Royal Enclosure is by sponsorship only from an existing badgeholder who has attended four previous years (these need not be consecutive). For more information visit the Royal Enclosure page.

 

GRANDSTAND ADMISSION

Grandstand Admission is the premier public enclosure at Royal Ascot and provides excellent facilities with access to the Pre-Parade Ring, Winners’ Enclosure and Parade Ring. Before the racing each day a military band will perform in the Parade Ring.

From the Grandstand Lawns racegoers will be able to watch Her Majesty The Queen arrive in her Royal Procession and the thrilling racing will begin shortly after. After racing each day, join in with the traditional singing around the Bandstand offering the perfect finish to a day at Royal Ascot.

To fully enhance your day at Royal Ascot, why not consider upgrading to our exclusive club The Furlong Club.
