About Ascot – Summary & History

Founded in 1711 by Queen Anne, Ascot Racecourse is a destination venue for world class horseracing and events, the leading racecourse in Britain and one of the finest in the world. Through Royal Ascot the aim is to host the most prestigious, popular and high-profile race meeting in the world.

Royal Ascot is broadcast in over 150 territories with a reach of over half a billion people with significant and growing digital and social media engagement. It is a marquee event in the global sports and leisure calendar.

Ascot hosts around 600,000 racegoers a year across 26 race days, 300,000 of whom come to the five days of Royal Ascot. Royal Ascot capacity can reach an attendance of 75,000 on a day. Ascot’s conference and events business welcomes a further 200,000 customers a year outside racing.

Ascot aims to offer its racegoers something for everyone who wishes to be involved, and Royal Ascot’s offerings reflect this through the entry level Windsor picnic enclosure, the mid-tier Village enclosure, the central Queen Anne Enclosure and ultimately the Royal Enclosure. And incorporating up to 7000 racegoers in a wide range of private box and restaurant fine dining facilities.
