From 20 days to go until Royal Ascot 2016, we are counting down 20 different Hidden Gems to look out for at Ascot Racecourse this year, one each day to ensure all racing fans can make the most of their experience.
The calm before the storm in terms of racing, the Pre-Parade Ring offers you the chance to view the horses as they are being prepared ahead of the walk to the Parade Ring and then the track.
During the redevelopment of the now iconic Grandstand in 2006, the Pre-Parade Ring returned to its historic location to the south side of the track.
It affords racegoers the chance to view the horses up close as they are saddled up and led around by their lad or lass 25 minutes before each race.
Situated on the Heath side of the track, opposite the Grandstand, The Villiers Club in the Village offers the perfect setting to enjoy informal dining and watch the racecourse come to life as the racing unfolds.
With breathtaking views, food, drink and music as well as a spacious and a relaxed private area, The Villiers Club is the perfect upgrade.
With the Queen Anne Enclosure now sold out for the Thursday, Friday and Saturday, The Villiers Club will ensure you don’t miss out. Find out morehere
Undoubtedly an iconic image from years gone by but a real experience every Ascot guest should experience.
The majority of overjoyed Royal Ascot racegoers will head straight for the station, car parks or high street when the final race finishes but the others gather around the Bandstand in the Queen Anne Enclosure for a good old fashioned sing song.
Brand new for Royal Ascot 2016, the Goldikova Bar, named after the famous Royal Ascot winner, is set to impress Queen Anne Enclosure goers.
The lengthy bar area is set in the outside area of the Grandstand and offers a perfect option between the track and the Queen Anne Lawns.

As always, a huge part of the racing at Royal Ascot is involved with the post-racing trophy presentation. A host of admired sportspersons, actors, singers and celebrities have the honour of handing out the prizes.
