Enclosures

Where to be for the best views

QUEEN ANNE ENCLOSURE (PREVIOUSLY KNOWN AS THE GRANDSTAND ENCLOSURE)

Situated within the magnificent woodland next to the Windsor Great Park, Queen Anne Enclosure is the perfect place to enjoy all that Ascot has to offer. Just a short walking distance from the Parade Ring, Winners Enclosure and Track which can be reached by crossing the Concourse of the main Grandstand, the enclosure provides a host of excellent facilities, with fantastic views of the racing both from elevated seating and at the trackside lawns at ground level. Each day before the racing, a military band will perform in the Parade Ring and guests will be able to witness Her Majesty The Queen arrive in the Royal Procession. There are also a range of places to eat and drink, and betting is possible at totepool kiosks, betting shops in the main grandstand and with bookmakers in the betting ring. After the racing is over, it is traditional for guests to head to the Bandstand to join in with a sing along. It is important to remember that ticket holders for this area do not have access to Level 4 of the Grandstand, which can only be accessed via the Edward VII Enclosure.

KING EDWARD VII GALLERY (PREVIOUSLY KNOWN AS PREMIER ADMISSION)

Ascot’s King Edward VII enclosure is the ideal place for the devoted racing enthusiasts to experience the excellence of Ascot. The exclusive fourth floor’s seated balconies overlook both the Parade Ring and track and are sure to provide unparalleled views, covering all the action of beforehand, the race itself and the aftermath. Fourth floor capacity has been reduced from 4,500 to 1,700, now providing guests with a more relaxed atmosphere and a guaranteed balcony seat with unsurpassed views of the racing. Whilst watching the breathtaking spectacle unfold, guests will be able to enjoy a wonderful selection of bars and dining options. And the benefits of staying at the King Edward IV enclosure don't stop after the racing is finished either… Guests attending the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup will also have a priority period in which they can secure stage-side viewing of the music concert after the racing.

WINNING POST ENCLOSURE (AVAILABLE ON KING GEORGE VI SATURDAY AND QIPCO BRITISH CHAMPIONS DAY)

Whilst fundamentally being a private area, Ascot’s Winning Post Enclosure is by no means separate from the action. Situated on the West end of the Grandstand ground floor, from private viewing lawns guests will be able to witness first-hand the nail biting moments as they see which horse bustles their way to the Winning Post first. A second viewing lawn is also available to guests, perfect for enjoying an evening drink or picnic. For those interested in sophisticated lunch options, a three-course a la carte menu is available in The Smokehouse and shellfish platters at the Seafood Terrace. A range of cakes and sandwiches are also on offer at the Deli.
