Know the Dress Code

If you’ve never been, you might be unaware of the Royal Ascot dress code. They’re pretty tight on what you can and can’t wear and if you don’t follow the rules we’re afraid you won’t be let in. Different enclosures have different guidelines, so make sure you check them out. If you’ve attended before, you might be interested to hear that this year marks a slight change in the rules, with full-length jumpsuits now allowed in the Royal Enclosure.

Race Times

Planning your day is key to making sure you don’t miss anything out. Before you go, you should have a good idea of what you want to do and when, so take a look at the race times that are up on the Ascot website. It’ll make things a lot easier if you’re organised!

Buy a Race Card

Even with preparation, we still advise on purchasing a race card. They’re sold around the site and give you all the information you need to know about the races, horses, jockeys and everything else. They’re incredibly useful!

Be Prepared for the Weather

Royal Ascot is in the UK so there’s always going to be a high chance of rain. Check the weather in the days running up to the races and, if things are looking doubtful, make sure you have the appropriate gear. Bring an umbrella and something to wrap up in if things get a little chilly. If you’re using our helicopter hire to Ascot we recommend checking 24 hours before the flight to ensure weather conditions won’t affect your journey, just in case!

  1. Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Spending some time and actual effort to generate a top notch article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.
