A racecourse rich in history and heritage, hosting one of the world's most prestigious race meetings, Royal Ascot, as well as 21 racedays and numerous non-racing events each year. 

Founded in 1711 by Queen Anne who, when riding out from Windsor Castle, came across a piece of land “ideal for horses to gallop at full stretch” and thus Ascot Racecourse was born. In the 300 years since, we’ve seen champions crowned and legends made, and are delighted to now welcome hundreds of thousands of racegoers each year. 

We hope to welcome you to Ascot soon.
