The King Edward VII Enclosure


Spectacular views

Formerly known as our Premier Admission Enclosure, the King Edward VII Enclosure is the best way to experience a raceday at Ascot Racecourse.

It offers racegoers spectacular views from the fourth floor of the Grandstand, a wealth of dining and restaurant options, plus a host of Ascot’s finest bars and lounge areas to relax in. 

The enclosure took its new name in 2016 and is now named in honour of Her Majesty The Queen’s great-grandfather, whose passion for racing and patronage of Ascot was unbounded.

Capacity has been reduced to enhance the experience for racegoers while it still offers access to the Parade Ring and the Pre-Parade Ring, as well as off-track entertainment and all the facilities and options available in the Queen Anne Enclosure.
