Royal Ascot is a dazzling event, which the Queen has attended since her reign, departing from Windsor Castle down to the prestigious racecourse.
Attendees who wish to revel in the excitement of Royal Ascot have the choice of four different enclosures. Within these enclosures, guests can view all of the sporting action and enjoy a fashionably social atmosphere, including views of the Royal procession.
Being spoilt with such spectacular choices, it is often hard to decide which enclosure to enjoy Royal Ascot in. So, for those of you stuck for choice, we’ve put together a guide on the different enclosures, to help make the decision just a little easier.
Once decided, find the perfect base with Eventmasters Royal Ascot 2020 Corporate Hospitality. Our facilities provide VIP access to different enclosures paired with luxury hospitality – the finest way to enjoy Royal Ascot.
