Royal Ascot 2019 Package

Like Nowhere Else

The Royal Meeting’s spectacular heritage, unlike any other, has made the event anticipated and revered the world over. From the arrival of the Royal Procession at 2pm sharp to the communal singing around the Bandstand, with six top-class races between, each of the five days is unforgettable.

Royal Ascot is Britain’s most valuable race meeting, attracting many of the world’s finest racehorses to compete for millions of pounds in prize money.

Ascot racecourse was founded in 1711 by Queen Anne, and the British monarchs continue to lend their patronage to this very special meeting.

The Royal Enclosure

Originally set aside for the running of the Gold Cup in 1807, the Royal Enclosure was a space exclusively reserved for the guests of King George III. Today, this historic heart of Royal Ascot is a centrepiece of the British Social season. To this day, membership to the Royal Enclosure continues to be by invitation only.

The Royal Enclosure is synonymous with sartorial elegance. This is upheld by a formal Dress Code - including full morning suit for Gentlemen - which invites guests to contribute to the occasion heralded as a major fashion event in its own right.

Highlights

We have three exciting packages available for you to experience a spectacular day at the Royal Enclosure. We are taking bookings for 2019. Please contact Toshiko to secure this fabulous opportunity.
