Tuesday’s highlight focuses on impeccable racing which guarantees plenty of excitement from the very start with three Group 1 races.
Whether it’s the Queen Anne Stakes in which Frankel turned in his most sensational performance in 2012, the King’s Stand Stakes, one of the world’s most pre-eminent sprint races, or the St James’s Palace Stakes which attracts horses that have run in the English, French and Irish 2,000 Guineas, Tuesday is without doubt overflowing with class for the true racing enthusiast.
On Tuesday, anticipation is high, the racecourse immaculate and for the purist, this is the unmissable day in the Royal Ascot calendar.
Tuesday is also the perfect day for socialising with plenty to offer in terms of dining; a three-course à la carte luncheon, gourmet picnic, Champagne afternoon tea or Fine Dining in one of Ascot’s restaurants.

The Royal Procession
At 2 pm sharp of each day The Royal Landaus, led by four Windsor Greys, approach along the famous Straight Mile. It’s a short but spectacular journey that since 1825 has signalled the start of the Royal Meeting.
The Queens Horses
Her Majesty The Queen is a dedicated racehorse owner who has attended every Royal Meeting during her reign. In 2013 she watched her filly Estimate triumph in the Gold Cup.
Singing Around the Bandstand
An unforgettable uplifting crescendo to the day as racegoers gather as a joyous choir led by the Royal Welsh Guards through a songbook of well-loved hits, past and present.
Like Nowhere Else since 1711
It was Queen Anne who discovered the land that was ‘ideal for horses to gallop at full stretch’. For 300 years since Ascot has written a story like nowhere else.
