Horse racing

Tue 18 JunSat 22 Jun 2019

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

The Royal Meeting’s spectacular heritage, unlike any other, has made the event anticipated and revered the world over. Held between 18-22 June 2019, approximately 300,000 people will visit Ascot racecourse in Berkshire during Royal Ascot Week.

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 18 Group races in total, 8 of which are group 1, Royal Ascot is the most valuable race meeting in Britain, with over £7.3 million in prize money.

Gates open at 10.30am, with the first race at 2.30pm.
