Royal Ascot 2018 Package

We now have three exciting packages available for you to experience a spectacular day at the Royal Enclosure. We are taking bookings for next year.  Please contact Toshiko to ensure you do not miss this fabulous opportunity.

This year, we were joined by guests from Japan and spent a day to remember at the Royal Enclosure. See what they had to say.

About Royal Ascot

Ascot racecourse was founded in 1711 by Queen Anne and since then British monarchs have lent their patronage to this course. HM Queen Elizabeth and the royal family attend the Royal meeting each year. It is a place to see and be seen, wearing gorgeous but traditional outfits which must adhere to a strict dress code. Some enjoy the racing, others enjoy dressing up. Some come for the champagne; others to watch the season's greatest thoroughbreds in action. Ascot has been a place to enjoy a royal racing for more than 300 years.

Among the stands, the Royal Enclosure is the most exclusive; admission is normally allowed only to those with sponsorship. Royal Ascot applies its strictest dress code for these guests. Those who have seen the musical "My Fair Lady" may fondly recall the scene where Audrey Hepburn, who played the title role, attends Royal Ascot like a lady after she has gone through intensive training in English pronunciation and manners.

Royal Ascot is a national event that you can enjoy while indulging yourself in a taste of high society.
