Dating back to 1711, Royal Ascot is one of Europe's most famous race meetings with five days of world class racing.

Attended every year by Her Majesty The Queen and various members of the Royal Family, each race day starts with a Royal procession as The Queen arrives in a horse-drawn carriage.

Featuring eight Group 1 races and 18 Group races in total, Royal Ascot is the most valuable race meeting in Britain, with over £5.3 million in prize money.
