Royal Ascot this year was memorable for a multitude of reasons. We witnessed an Oisin Murphy masterclass as he rode five winners that week, including a dramatic win with Foxes Tales in the Golden gates Stakes. Despite the tremendous racing on display, Ascot did not feel the same. Restrictions were still in place; the buzz surrounding the prestigious festival was missing. Eyes have now turned to next year's Royal Ascot since COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted. When booking your trip, it is beneficial to know the differences between each enclosure & the experiences they provide.
This is the grandest and most exclusive enclosure at Royal Ascot. Required membership, which is only attainable through the invite of two current members, makes this the most sought-after enclosure at Royal Ascot. The only other way one can access the Royal Enclosure is by purchasing a hospitality package; prices for the Wyndham Club start at £639pp. If you decide to purchase this package, prepare to look the part and dress with class, we’re talking top hats, waistcoats, the whole shebang. Top-of-the-line dining options are to be expected; the Michelin-starred chefs paired with spectacular views will give you an experience you’ll never forget.
The Queen Anne Enclosure at Royal Ascot is iconic. Incredible views of the Royal Procession, the finish line, and the Parade Ring steppings are just the beginning. This enclosure will give you an experience like no other - partake in jubilant singing around the bandstand and bask in the atmosphere. Fantastic dining options are plentiful in the enclosure; be sure to satisfy your palate before heading to the Moët & Chandon Champagne bars. If it is the quintessential Ascot experience that you seek, then look no further. Prepare to dress up in your finest attire and enjoy the whirlwind of colour and style. This enclosure is suited for small groups who wish to embrace Ascot traditions and make their day out as memorable as possible.
This experience is perfect for those looking for a no-pressure memorable day out at Ascot. The Village Enclosure provides a festival-type atmosphere, boasting three music stages in what is a brilliant blend of cocktails, music & racing. The multitude of street food stands specialising in global cuisines are guaranteed to take your tastebuds on a journey. After an electric day of racing, the music stages await. Open till 9 pm, you will leave the racecourse knowing you have made the most of your day out. The variety of entertainment that the Village Enclosure offers makes for one of the best summer parties of the year. We recommend this enclosure for groups who are looking to celebrate and maybe even dance the night away.
The Windsor Enclosure is the most informal of the four here at Ascot. We see it suitable for people bringing children and those looking to enjoy a day out at Ascot in the summer sun. Bring your own picnic, sample foods from nearby stands and let your hair down in a stress-free environment. If this enclosure is for you, you will be next to the rails and the first to catch sight of the Royal Procession as it proceeds down the Straight Mile. Racing, live music, and a chilled party atmosphere make for a great day out.
