“For a top day out - you can't beat this”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

As a big racing fan i have been to many courses both here and abroad.
My most recent visit was to a jump meeting on a freezing cold, wet and windy day.
The premier grandstand tickets give you access to many areas and we headed to the top floor to enjoy panoramic views over the course and races, whilst staying warm and dry in lovely surroundings.
Dress accordingly, details are on ascot's own website and then enjoy your day.
We sipped Laurent Perrier Pink champagne in the bars and the totebetting was thankfully a few steps away.
This is a great venue for both summer and winter meetings.
Summer has the edge with Royal Ascot week but i love it here all year round.

“Excellent racecourse, go every year”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

We really like visiting Ascot and the facilities, since the refurb, are very good. There are numerous betting booths so one doesn't have to queue too long and most of the food outlets inside, while expensive, are not exorbitant. The washroom facilities are much larger and even there the queues are long but move quickly. All in all a very good experience.

“Great Day out for the family”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Easy day out with a 9 month old. Plenty of space for them to play whilst admiring the horses. We took a picnic and were lucky with the weather. Was on of their family days so FOC to get in and a nice soft play area for the smaller kids,

“Enjoyable!!”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

It was a very wet Saturday....but...we had a really good time!!! The Christmas shopping village was there as well!! Although it was raining on and off all day there is plenty of shelter in the grandstand, as well as plenty of seating, many bars and several places to get food...The racing was good and in all I really enjoyed the day!! Parking is just across the road and the railway station is a 10 minute walk away..! I have been to Ascot races many times and would reccommend it as a good day out for all ages!!! Enjoy!!
