Annual Private Boxes

Ascot has an extensive range of private boxes, each consisting of a private bar and dining room with a large flat screen television, bespoke catering options, and a balcony that offers a prime view of the racing. Betting facilities are easily accessible on every level.

The annual licence fee would entitle you to use the box for all 26 race meetings throughout the year including Royal Ascot week, King George VI Weekend and QIPCO British Champions Day amongst others.

There are many additional benefits of becoming an annual Boxholder:

Two VIP swipe cards and metal box badges affording two extra admissions, on top of the buffet capacity of admission tickets and box badges for your guests, for each of the 26 racedays  

Credit facilities when booking catering

Ability to personalise your box 

Invitations to various external Boxholder events

Regular newsletters including exclusive offers

Sponsorship opportunities


If you are unable to use your box on certain days, we would welcome the opportunity to sublet it  on your behalf.

The majority of our 213 private boxes are sold on an annual basis, but each year some boxes will become available on the open market.
