DRESS CODE


A day out at Ascot Racecourse is very special and dressing for the occasion is an important part of the raceday experience.

For our new interactive Royal Ascot dress code please click here, refer to the below for Ascot Racedays

Ascot Racedays

Guidance is provided on how to dress for a day at the races (for racedays outside the Royal Meeting).

PREMIER ADMISSION

Flat Season (May to October)

Ladies should dress as for a smart occasion.

Gentlemen are required to wear a jacket with a collared shirt and tie. Trainers are not allowed.

Children aged 17 and under should adhere to the Premier Admission dress code, however this does not apply to very young children.

Please note that fancy dress, novelty and branded or promotional clothing is not permitted within Premier Admission.

Jumps Season (November to April)

Gentlemen usually wear a jacket with a collared shirt and tie, and ladies like to dress as for a smart occasion. Whilst this style of dress is preferred in Premier Admission during the Jumps season, it is not compulsory.

Please note that fancy dress, novelty and branded or promotional clothing is not permitted within Premier Admission.

GRANDSTAND ADMISSION

Whilst we encourage racegoers to wear smart clothing, no formal dress code applies in the Grandstand Admission area during either the Flat or Jumps season. Bare chests are not permitted at any time.

 

 

 

 

FANCY DRESS

Fancy dress is permitted at Ascot Racecourse within the Grandstand Admission area on all days outside Royal Ascot. However, fancy dress will not be permitted if it is liable to cause offence to any other racegoers on religious or sexual grounds.

Ascot Racecourse reserves the right to refuse entry to anyone deemed to be dressed inappropriately. If your party is considering wearing fancy dress, please call the Sales Team on +44 (0)844 346 3000 in order to avoid any disappointment on the day.
