High-end fashion and racing thrills make Royal Ascot an unparalleled event in Berkshire

Royal Ascot’s glitz and glamour make it a unique event, where high-end fashion is as much a part of the experience as the thrilling horse races.

Spectacular Start and Extravagant Spending

The week kicks off with eye-popping figures, from high-stakes auctions to lavish spending in the betting ring and even the car park. Royal Ascot stands apart as the most exclusive racing event, with over a third of a billion pounds invested in creating lifelong memories.

A Racing Fixture Unlike Any Other

Unlike the year-round buzz of the Cheltenham Festival, Royal Ascot appears almost suddenly in the public eye. Despite this, trainers and racegoers meticulously prepare for the event, planning race entries and elegant outfits for the prestigious Royal and Queen Anne Enclosures.

Fashion at the Forefront

Fashion is integral to Ascot. Luxury brand LK Bennett has a pop-up store on-site, drawing brisk trade. Men also indulge, with top hat polishing services and high-priced new hats available.

Culinary and Beverage Delights

Inside the venue, food and drink options cater to all tastes and budgets, from burgers and beer to exquisite dinners at Michelin-starred restaurants. Vendors offer cigars and Pimm’s, satisfying the diverse preferences of the 60,000-plus crowd.

Affordable Options for All

While some aspects of Royal Ascot are lavish, it’s not just for big spenders. Tickets to the Heath enclosure, where visitors can bring their own picnic, cost just £10, offering a unique and affordable race-viewing experience.

The Thrill of Racing

The excitement of Royal Ascot is palpable, highlighted by thrilling races like the King Charles III Stakes. The Australian mare Asfoora’s stunning win demonstrates the unparalleled joy and prestige of success at Ascot.

The Rich History and Heritage

Though Royal Ascot’s prize money doesn’t match some international events, its 217-year history and heritage make it a coveted experience for owners and trainers worldwide.

High-Stakes Auctions and Eager Bidders

Ahead of the races, auctions like the one held by Goffs see high bids for potential winners. Football agent Kia Joorabchian’s investment in the colt Taraj underscores the allure and competitive spirit of Ascot.

Betting Bonanza and Economic Impact

Betting is a significant part of the Ascot experience, with huge turnovers and massive bets placed throughout the week. The event generates substantial revenue, critical to Ascot’s annual financial success.

The Priceless Pursuit of Happiness

Beyond the staggering figures and high stakes, Royal Ascot is about the priceless joy of shared moments, whether it’s a day out with friends or achieving a long-sought victory.
