Royal Ascot Royal Enclosure Hospitality

Traditionally, to be admitted to the Royal Enclosure one must either be a guest of a member, or be sponsored for membership by a member who has attended at least four times. However, in 2007 the Royal Enclosure offered day passes to those who bought hospitality in the Panoramic, Windsor Forest, Parade Ring or the Trackside Restaurants.

Private Boxes are also available, please enquire for details.

Dress code – Please adhere to dress code

Her Majesty’s Representative wishes to point out that Ladies should wear formal day dress with a hat or substantial fascinator to be accepted into the Royal Enclosure. Off the shoulder, halter neck, spaghetti straps and dresses with a strap of less than one inch or miniskirts are considered unsuitable. Midriffs must be covered and trouser suits must be full length and of matching material and colour.

Gentlemen are required to wear either black or grey morning dress, including a waistcoat, with a top hat. A gentleman may remove his top hat within a restaurant, a private box, a private club or that facility’s terrace, balcony or garden. Hats may also be removed within any enclosed external seating area within the Royal Enclosure Garden.

Overseas visitors are welcome to wear the formal national dress of their country or Service dress.

Ladies and Gentlemen not complying with the above dress regulations will be asked to leave the Royal Enclosure and will be relieved of their Royal Enclosure badge.


The security requirements for the Royal Enclosure mean that names of each guest will be required at least one month prior to the start of Royal Ascot.
