Royal Ascot: What to Expect in This 2021 Session?

Royal Ascot takes place between Tuesday 15th June and Saturday 19th June 2021. Established in 1711, Ascot Racecourse is one of the main racetracks in the UK. The best horses and their jockeys race there for a prize of £ 5million. Members of the British Royal Family are loyal spectators of the Ascot Race and Queen Elizabeth II visits it every year. The event attracts over 300 000 people to the course each year, as a strict dress code is required, which also makes it a top-notch social event.

Royal Ascot received the green light to allow fans to return

Social events have been virtually canceled for most of the last 12 months, but their return is welcome in 2021. Among the events canceled in 2020 was one of the biggest events in the Berkshire calendar, the Royal Ascot. Competitors watch the event on television, while the five-day race is held behind closed doors for the first time in its history. However, as part of the British government’s confirmation that the third step of their roadmap for the blockade will begin on May 17, Royal Ascot received the green light to allow fans to return. So, if you are interested in vibrating to the rhythm of the horses this year, you can already purchase your tickets. Tickets for Royal Ascot vary in price, depending on what day you wish to attend, and which Enclosure you choose to enjoy the day in. You can travel to Royal Ascot by road, rail or air. Indeed, Ascot Racecourse is ideally situated in beautiful wooded countryside adjoining Windsor Great Park and about a 50-minute drive or train journey from London. But you should know that Royal Ascot is synonymous with sartorial elegance. This is upheld by the dress code, which invites guests to contribute to an occasion heralded as a major fashion event in its own right.

What is the capacity of Royal Ascot in 2021?


Royal Ascot has confirmed that they are in constant contact with the UK Government about the possibility of expanding their capacity as a crowd. However, it seems that the event can accommodate 4,000 visitors a day for five days. Royal Ascot will contact guests if the number changes before the event and lucky winners are eligible to attend within the current restrictions they will contact in the coming weeks.

Which Is the Best Enclosure for Royal Ascot?

The Royal Enclosure was conceived in 1822, when King George IV commissioned a two-storey stand to be built with surrounding lawn. This was designated a unique area with access strictly by invitation of the King. Nowadays, membership to the Royal Enclosure continues to be by invitation only. Members can book badges for themselves and their guests, book car parking or sponsor new members. It’s hard to say which is the best enclosure for Royal Ascot because there are four Enclosures, and each offers a unique experience. However, you can find information about the 2021 Royal Ascot Enclosures on the official website.
